London Cheesecake ~ 伦敦乳酪蛋糕

This is a interesting cheesecake. I can't tell you how velvety smooth and creamy the cheesecake filling it is. Another interesting part is that it has a pretty and delicious topping. The topping is made of whisking sour cream, sugar and vanilla extract together and pour on the surface of the cooked cheesecake. Slightly cook for another 10 minutes and its done.
这伦敦乳酪蛋糕很特别呢!不但乳酪馅料香滑,味道好,蛋糕还有一层酸奶表层。这表层是酸奶加糖和香草精混合成的酸奶糊。 当蛋糕烤熟了,就直接把拌好的酸奶糊淋上表面,在轻烤多10分钟,就可了。
我呢,都会把蛋糕一次过切好。收在盒子,在送入冰箱。当要吃时就方便多了,要吃几片就拿几片。I will normally use a cake divider to measure the cake and cut up the whole cake at once. Keep it in a Tupperware container. When you need to serve, it is nicely cut, just place a piece or two on and dessert plate and serve~

Although it is a heavy cheesecake, it taste velvety smooth and creamy. Believe me, once you taste it, you will ask for more :p

London Cheesecake 伦敦乳酪蛋糕
Recipe adapted from How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson or here 
Makes a 8 inches cheesecake

Ingredients for the base:
150g digestive biscuits
75g unsalted butter (melted or very soft)

Ingredients for the filling:
600g cream cheese
150g castor sugar
3 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
1 1/2tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

Topping :
145g natural set yogurt (originally used sour cream)
1 Tbsp castor sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract 

To Do:
  • Place biscuits into a zip-lock bag, release any air from the bag and sealed. Crushed the biscuits with a rolling pin as fine as you can. Pour into a bowl, add in melted butter or very soft butter and mixed well. Lined the bottom of a 20cm/8 inches spring form tin, pressing the biscuits in with your hand or the back of a spoon. Let it set in the fridge until the filling is ready and preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Beat cream cheese till smooth, add sugar. Beat in eggs and egg yolks then add in vanilla and lemon juice, blend well.
  • Wrapped or lined the outer baking tin with strong foil, which covers the sides and bottom; place into a roasting pan or a baking dish which is bigger. This will protect the cheesecake from water, as it is cooked in water-bath. 
  • Pour cream cheese filling into the baking tin with the prepared chilled biscuits base, then pour hot water into the roasting pan. It should be about 1/3 up the baking tin. Put into the preheated oven and cook for 50 minutes. 
  • It should feel set, with a little wobble in the middle. Whisk natural set yogurt, sugar and vanilla extract for the topping. Pour the over the cooked cheesecake. It should sit on the surface and not sink in. Put it back into the oven to cook for further 10 minutes. (i am using yogurt here so i reduce the temperature to 160C)
  • Remove roasting pan from the oven, take out the spring form tray, unwrap it and cool it on a wire rack. Put it into the fridge only when it is cool down completely. 
  • Removing the cheesecake 20 minutes from the fridge before serving, to take the chill off. (i apply a hot towel wrapped around the side of the cheesecake for about 5 minutes to take the chill off, then unmould it from the spring form tray)
  • Plunge a knife into hot water first before cutting the cheesecake. (This will give it a clean and neat cut. After every cut clean knife with a kitchen towel and plunge the knife once again into hot water)
