Having all the cheesecake try outs these past weeks, I thought it’s about time to reduced the size, so here’s my Flavour no. 3 -Mini Orange marmalade Cheesecake.
1 pk of Orange Viennese biscuit (5.3 oz)
1/4 cup ground almond
1 tbsp granulated sugar
5 tbsp melted unsalted butter
1 Philadelphia cream cheese (300 g)
1 pk thick cream (250 ml)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp orange mandarin zest
Pinch of salt
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp orange juice
* mixture will yield 12 cupcakes
3 tbsp orange marmalade
1 tbsp water
Crush orange biscuit with rolling pin, combine almond meal (ground almonds),sugar and melted butter. Mix thoroughly and place it equally in 12 silicone cupcake moulders. I brushed the inside of the moulder with melted butter before putting in the crumbled mixture for easy removable of the cheesecake. Set aside.
Pre-heat oven to Gas no. 3, I am not sure of the conversion to fahrenheit or celsius.
Cream the cheese at room temperature, Combine sugar,vanilla powder,salt and mix it with the creamed cheese. Add thick cream,mandarin zest and orange juice. Add eggs one at a time, mix thoroughly.
Scoop the mixture into the prepared crust and baked for 20 minutes.
Mix orange marmalade and water, heat in the microwave for 25 seconds.
Placed it on top of the baked cheesecake. Turn off the heat and leave the door slightly open for about 10 minutes.
Take out the cheesecake and leave it out for another 10 minutes, cover with aluminium foil, chill it for another one hour or more. Serve with fresh mandarin on top.
“A mixture of sweet and sour hmmm just right I can not resist to take another bite”
Note: as of this writing, my weight is still under control :-), I walk about 1.8 miles everyday and shares my cheesecakes with my staff… hahaha I bet they can’t say no to me.
