Cheesecake with white chocolate and cranberries
Another recipe for you, I've decided to make more cakes and try out different recipes I find on the Polish culinary blogs, Here is the cheesecake just before it went into the oven:
- 120 g of cookies, digestive type
- 50 g butter, melted
- 60 ml of creme fraiche
- 130 g of white chocolate + 70 g for the glaze
- 375 g of cream cheese
- 1 Tsp orange zest
- 110 g icing sugar
- 1 egg
- 150 - 200 g cranberries (frozen or fresh)
In a double boiler melt the chocolate with creme fraiche, let it cool down.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar, orange zest and egg until fluffy.
Add the chocolate/cream mixture. Pour it onto crust. On the top add cranberries (red currants may also work here quite well, or raspberries).
Bake for about 1 hour in 160°C/320 F.
After it's baked and cooled down, glaze it with some melted white chocolate.The cheesecake must stay in the fridge for at least 3 hours before it's served! Wait a bit, it's totally worth it! *^v^*
Robert's mother paid us a visit today and the cheesecake almost didn't make it till the photoshoot! *^v^*
