One of the popular root crops in Philippines is Kamote (sweet potato), I love eating it boiled with brown sugar and butter on the sides. It can also be fried or grilled and commonly called as “Kamote cue” sounds like barbecue 🙂 So i thought why not as cheesecake. Here’s my flavour no. 18 Sweet Potato Cheesecake.
6 pcs crushed graham chocolate crackers
1/4 cup melted butter
4-5 pieces of soft orange-flesh sweet potato
1 can condensed milk
300 g Philadelphia cream cheese
250 ml thick cream
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbsp flour
Pre-heat oven Gas mark # 3
Mix together graham crackers crumbs and butter. Press mixture into 8 inches springform baking pan. set aside
Mash sweet potato with fork and combine condensed milk.Beat cream cheese and sugar together, combine the mixture of sweet potato. add a pinch of salt and flour. Adding one egg at a time. Add vanilla powder and thick cream, until all blended. Pour filling into prepared crust.Bake for 1 hour.
Careful not to open wide the oven door as i did! sudden change of temperature will lead to an open crack. Let the cheesecake cool down inside the oven for an hour. Let it stand for another hour before chilling, preferrably refrigerate for another four hours.
Ladies, this is the cheesecake that I won’t mind doing again, it’s really a sweet treat for everyone!! Everyone who doesn’t mind their weight :-)hahahaha just for an update, I lost 2 kilo since I started the challenge. I guess, even though I love eating cheesecake, I am losing weight because of the stress of excitement how well my baking will turn out.
