Baked Grapefruit Cheesecake


Perhaps this cheesecake will be the finale (New York CheesecakeNo Bake CheesecakeMango CheesecakePandan (Screwpine) Cheesecake, Chocolate Cheesecake and Orange Cheesecake) because I have made quite a variety. Unless of course if its gonna be something out of this world, what can be different about cheesecake? Well, the bottom biscuit layer or cake layer and decked with creamy cheese in various ways. Okay, maybe I may make cheesecakes filled or layered in little cups, these will be perfect for parties and gatherings. While the intention is there though I have not decided, lets get going with this grapefruit cheesecake  - plain sweet biscuits crumbled with butter for the bottom layer, fruity-luscious-creamy top layer and some grapefruit pieces scattered atop.   

Ingredients
100g (or enough for a layer at the bottom) plain sweet biscuits - crushed
75g margarine/butter - melted
200g cream cheese
300g ricotta cheese
1/2 cup (125g) caster sugar
1/3 cup (80 ml) grapefruit juice (adjust according to taste)
1 tsp grapefruit rind
1 egg
1 egg white
Method
Lightly grease a spring form tin and line the base with baking paper.
Crumble crushed biscuits and margarine.
Press into the base of the tin.
Refrigerate for 30 mins.
Beat cream cheese, ricotta cheese, sugar, grapefruit juice and rind until smooth.
(Either by hand or electric beater)
Then beat in egg and egg white
Tip mixture over the biscuit layer. 
Bake for 45 minutes at 160C. 
(Note: the centre will still be a little wobbly).
Cool down and rerefrigerate for at least 5 hours or overnight before serving.

  27. This looks so beautiful. I am not a big fan of baked cheesecake but this one has citrus and ricotta in it so it balances out the richness. Grapefruit has such a unique colour and it shines in this recipe. Delicious!
