American Cheese Cake

Ingredients

Biscuit Base

  • 250 gr Biscuits, finely crushed
  • 100 gr Melted butter

Cheese Cake Filling

  • 400 gr Quark Cheese
  • 500 gr Cream Cheese
  • 250 gr Granulated White Sugar
  • 300 gr Sour Cream
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence


How to make it

  1. For the Biscuit Base: Place the biscuit into a plastic bag and crush them using a rolling pin/ hard object. Then add the butter to the crumbled cookies and mix it all together thoroughly. Pour the mixture into the spring form pan and press firmly, spreading the crust evenly up to the sides. Keep it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes
  2. For the Cheese Fillin : Add cream cheese in a bowl, quark cheese, vanilla essence & caster sugar. Whisk all the ingredients with a spatula until well blended & creamy. (in this case you just need to stir the mixture & not beat it. So not to whisk in air because it will make it too light with the texture).
  3. Preheat the oven to 175ยบC (347F). 
  4. When everything is creamy you can add an egg to the mixture and stir it in. Repeat for each other egg until everything is well blended with the cheese mixture. At last put the sour cream into the bowl and stir it in thoroughly with a whisk (do not beat the mixture, because it will make too much air).
  5. Take out the biscuit base from the fridge, then pour the cheese cake filling onto the biscuit based. Then place the spring form in the preheated oven and bake for 45 minutes. Shut the oven off and let the cheesecake cool in the oven for as long as 4 hours. This will keep it from cracking when you transfer it to the refrigerator.
  6. Remove the cooled cheesecake from the oven and put it in the refrigerator to chill. The colder your cheesecake, the more firm the filling will be.
  7. Use your knife to separate the cheesecake from the spring form. Release the pan from its base and gently lift it off the cheesecake. Slice the cheesecake into a serving & chilled plate. You also can add some fruits & chocolate sprinkle as a garnish.

Enjoy! En Guete! Selamat Makan!
