Walnut and honey Cheesecake – suggested by my Chef Kevin. I think I ate a lot of walnuts while making this cheesecake. I just tweaked my basic recipe of cheesecake, added honey, walnuts and presto! Flavour #31 was born 🙂
1/2 cup of crushed honey graham crackers
1/2 cup of almond meal
3 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp crushed walnuts
3 pkg (200 g) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup honey
3 eggs plus 1 egg yolk
1/2 cup yogurt (any kind)
1/8 tsp lemon juice
a pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla powder
Whipping cream or cheese frosting (optional)
Preheat oven Gas mark #3
Mix biscuits,almond meal,walnuts and butter together. Pressed the mixture into the springform pan, placed in the oven for 10 min, set aside.
Beat the cream cheese, add sugar, vanilla and honey alternately, until the mixture is smooth. Add egg one at a time until well blended.Combine yogurt and lemon juice with salt, add it to the mixed batter. Pour into the prepared crust. Baked for 1 hr in water bath, put off the oven, leave the door slightly open for another 30 min. Remove and leave it cool for one hour and chill for another 4 hours in the fridge.
Ladies, enjoy the walnut too!
