Home-baked Cheesecake Challenge: Flavour #19 Italian Cheesecake (torta de ricotta y mascarpone)

I have tried mascarpone in my Avocado cheesecake recipe, this time I tried a combination of Italian cheese – Ricotta and Mascarpone. This is so deliciously light, fluffy and soft. Ladies, say hello to my  Cheesecake # 19 Italian Cheesecake

There are a lot of recipes of Italian cheesecake but i simply like to follow something easy to make. I found the blog of susan @stickygoeycreamychew.com,  it’s  a bit sweet but  yummy! If ever I will make this one again, I’ll reduce the sugar content. I also tried doing some sugar art, failed at the first attempt but a little success on second attempt.

Dulce de Leche Cheesecake (Leche Flan and cheese cake) I choose the light version, using light cream cheese and light digestive biscuit and 30% thick cream.



2 cups of crushed digestive biscuits

4 tbsp melted butter unsalted

2 tbsp granulated sugar

a pinch of salt

Cheesecake filling

3 pkgs. (900 g) of light cream cheese

4 eggs

1 small pkg. thick cream

1 1/3 cup of granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla powder

1/2 tsp lemon zest

Leche Flan

6 egg yolk

1 can condensed milk

1 small pkg. cream cheese


walnut with home-made caramel sauce

Mix all the CRUST ingredients and baked it for 10 minutes, cool and set aside. Cream the cheese,add the sugar and eggs alternately, one egg at a time then the remaining ingredients. In a separate mixing bowl, mix the Leche Flan ingredients. Pour the cheesecake filling first into the prepared crust… wait about 5 min before pouring in the Leche Flan mixture slowly on top. Baked at 325°F for 1 1/2 hours. Top with walnut dipped in caramel sauce.

Warning: this is so good, all my friends love it, if you are on diet, don’t ever attempt to make it or else … guaranteed to add a kilo on weighing scale 🙂

Good luck!
