C is for Cheesecake!!!

C is for Cheesecake

Those of your who have been reading this blog for a while know I loves me some cheesecake!
I experiment, I tinker, I modify, but when all is said and done, I feel like an occasional regular American-style cake is the way to go..

 Crush a packet of graham crackers (or whole wheat digestive biscuits) with 1/2 stick of buttter and 1 tbsp sugar. Line the bottom of a 9" springform pan with this mixture.

In your blender combine 2 (8 oz) packets cream cheese (or Labneh Chtoora if you happen to have access to it) with 3 eggs, 2/3 cup sugar, 1tbsp lemon juice (tsp zest is optional). Blend until smooth and pour into your pan. Bake in a water-bath at 350 (180) for 45 - 55 minutes, watch it closely after 30 min. You want the center set, but not browning...

Top with any (or all) fruits. Bliss.

    Happy A to Z'ing!

  5. Hi Shilpa, I really do want to do away with the Captcha (I hate the things) but if I do, I get innundated with comments that are spam and sales pitches for porn. I'm not sure why, but this blog is on a list somewhere.... Sorry.
