It All Starts with The Base
When it comes to creating a delicious cheesecake, the base you choose can make all the difference. You can stick to the ordinary or explore a more adventurous world of flavours and textures! Begin with a classic graham cracker crust, prepared with crushed graham crackers, butter, and sugar. Or, if you want to take a walk on the wild side, try a Bourbon or ginger biscuit crust made of crushed biscuits mixed with melted butter. If chocolate is your weakness, indulge in a chocolate cookie such as Oreo crust that pairs perfectly with creamy cheesecake filling. For a delicate and crumbly base, a shortbread crust will elevate your cheesecake to new heights. If you love a little crunch, experiment with a nut crust made from crushed almonds or pecans. And for those craving something a bit different, crushed pretzels give a delightful salty-sweet crunch that will leave you wanting more. The base possibilities are endless so let your taste buds be your guide!
To Bake or Not to Bake?
Did you know that there are two different types of cheesecakes to choose from? Let us introduce you to the delightful world of no-bake and baked cheesecakes, each with its own unique qualities.
Starting with the no-bake variety, these cheesecakes are all about convenience. Usually, you just need to mix sugar, whipped cream and cream cheese together, let it chill in the fridge, and voila! You'll be rewarded with a light and creamy texture that melts in your mouth. It's the ideal treat for those who prefer a softer and lighter cheesecake experience. We have the perfect recipe for a Funfetti No-bake Cheesecake.
On the other hand, if you're craving a rich and velvety indulgence, baked cheesecakes are the way to go. The filling usually consists of a mixture of sugar, cream cheese, and eggs. Then once baked to perfection in the oven, it emerges with a dense and smooth texture that will leave you wanting more. If you decide to try making the baked type of this yummy dessert, we got you covered. Here’s our Passionfruit Cheesecake recipe tit hat is sure to be a summer hit!
When it comes to adding the perfect finishing touch to your cheesecake, the topping possibilities are never ending. Adding fruit and berries will make your creation look vibrant and it will give the ultimate taste of summer. Another fantastic topping is of course the mighty chocolate. Drizzle the cocoa goodness over your cheesecake for the greatest treat. Alternatively, the sweet texture of caramel sauce on your creation will make anyone fall head over heels. The combination of creamy cake and sticky caramel is just divine! You can also shake things up with a crunchy twist by sprinkling crushed nuts such as almonds or pecans on top of your creation. This nutty infusion adds a lovely contrast of textures and flavours. Even better, why not combine the three: chocolate, caramel and nuts for an absolute feast for the eyes and your taste buds! We found you a Turtle Cheesecake recipe that has it all.
Cheesecake with a Twist
