It’s been more than a month since I started the challenge of home baking cheesecake, and this is my 20th flavour. Yes! (two thumbs up) the 20th , running out of idea? Nope still excited every time. What about pineapple? I was searching for fresh sweet pineapple (as if I really know how to choose) lol! I saw this little tiny basket and wonder hmm what kind of fruit is this?
Physalis is like a small tomato, it has a sweet and sour taste, so I thought it will be a good combination with pineapple and I was right! this flavour # 20 Physalis pineapple Cheesecake is to die for…meaning I have to double my work out at the gym to compensate for having two slices of this delicious combination. 🙂
Having a busy clinic week and a baking addiction on the side, I choose a pre-mix pineapple batter to lessen my time in the kitchen…hahaha talking about laziness!
2 bars of raspberry
10 crushed digestive biscuits
1/4 cup melted butter
1 pk Super moist pineapple pre mix cake batter (Betty Crocker) plus 3 eggs,1/3 oil,275 ml water
500 g Philadelphia cream cheese
1 large egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 can sliced pineapple and 1/2 cup of syrup
10 pcs Physalis divided into two halves
dried pineapple flower (thinly slices of fresh pineapple, oven dried and left to dry overnight inside the muffin baking tin)
White chocolate ganache
Pre heat oven Gas mark # 3
Crumble raspberry bars and mix it with crushed digestive biscuits ,add melted butter and place it into lightly greased springform pan, set aside.
Mix the pineapple pre cake mix and the ingredients mentioned in the box, divide into two.
Mix cream cheese, sugar in medium speed until smooth, add egg and pineapple juice. Add thick cream and mix thoroughly.
Place the first half of pineapple batter into the prepared baking pan, arrange pineapple and physalis on top. Pour the cream cheese and the remaining half of the pineapple batter. Bake for 45 minutes or when toothpick is inserted in the centre, it comes out clean.
Cool for an hour then chill for another 2 hours before topping.
