Lemon Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Topping



Purple yam Cheesecake










Having been wanting to try this out for a while but could never find fresh of powdered purple yam, also known as Ube I could only find the regular white one, I remember thef ist time I had this was in Hong Kong many years ago in for them form of ice-cream and was hooked.

I gave up looking for it in the stores and went online, this was just as bad as looking for it in stores but finally found a online shop that supplied it

Well used it in my regular cheesecake recipe but during the long time it took to bake and after cooling and cutting the 1st slice,  i needed to add an extra egg to help the baking/setting process.


I topped it off with a chocolate nougat, as you can see from the slice was firm but softer than I would like   but it taste absolutely delish.

Lemon Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Topping

Not just your regular Cheesecake.

But a very zesty one with the addition of condensed milk and a mixed based from cookies and crackers and some left over cupcakes which I toasted in the oven to dry out, then mixed into the crumbled cookie mixture. (sorry no pics of the cupcakes they were an after thought/idea also added some line zest as well as the lemon zest and juice)

Considering the cupcakes was made from rice flour and the topping was a cream jello mix added just before it set so it would soak a little into the cake base, once baked again in the oven the topped turned into a  soft candy like texture.

Once cooled, could be broken up into small piece then blitz in the blender, they do not break up very small but make for a nice little surprise when you dig into the base/crust of the cheesecake.

We all now caramel is easy to make but one must not leave unattended which I nearly did (was a busy evening) so it did not burn or  bubble over, after pouring on the slightly cooled caramel I used a little condense milk to make the patten.

(serves 12)

Got a thumbs up all rounds.












Trying my hand at gluten free baking, not bad even if I say so myself.

A mixed nut base and a  2 part filling normal thick cheese cake and then a mango purée  mixture.

Needed more time in the oven I think but was cooked through and softer then I hoped but just as tasty.

Pumpkin Cheesecake

Ready for the oven










Having many first and this one is my first Pumpkin Cheesecake

This recipe was ment to be made with flour but I used the left over egg white and whisked to stiff peaks and folded it into the mixture to keep some body.

So happy with the out come and the taste was delish.

My Cheesecake.

I  made this just after Christmas needlesss to say it did not last long enough for me to get a single slice photo.

This is just a regluar cheesecake mixture  with a gingernut and cornflake base added extra ginger powder to the base.

I was not sure what topping to do as I forgot to prepare and swirl the fruit in before baking  so opted for a white and chocolate topping which turned out rather well.

It just had enough time for it to  rest and it  was gone.









I just love making these but as a rule now they are always  for other people.

I made thse for some friends  for Christmas and one of my friends reported back that a few people who claimed not to eat Chorklite (yes they said it in this way they do nt spel it this way :)) but my friend told them to try a pices as they were cut small and before they even finished the 1st bite they were all Mmmm and MMmmm and going to take a 2nd piece. (I just loved it when she told me).

This is a rich moreish slice of chocolatey  indulgence, to be had with a glass of milk or cup of tea.

Three different  types of  chocolate used plain,  milk and white, the milk and white chocolate are broken into pieces  and set aside.

I piped in the cheesecake mixture zig zaging through the brownie mixture then pushed in alternatively the milk and white chocolate.

While in the oven I tempered some plain chocolate with some Chocolate spread and peanut butter and crushed some peanut to decorate.
