Baking DD wants to make a cheesecake and on the net there are so many recipes that she doesn't know which one to choose. Mind that she never made a real cheesecake before so she needs a recipe that will work and produces a yummy cake. She has her mind set on a New York cheesecake with creamcheese.
 Anyone with baking qualities and THE cheescake recipe???

BTW, she did her drivers license exam today and passed!


  1. Gefeliciteerd met je dochter. Heerlijk als ze het rijbewijs hebben, mijn zoon Jasper heeft het 2 weken geleden gehaald. Weer een zorg minder

  2. Gefeliciteerd Baking DD. Knap gedaan hoor.
    Helaas heb ik van bakken geen verstand. Ben het wel van plan. Heb toevallig net een pak spul in huis gehaald, waar alleen maar water bij hoeft... LOL Benieuwd of dat gaat lukken.

  3. Sorry no help here. I don't bake at all. Kudos on getting her license though :o)


  4. Here's my special reipe for an espress-cheeseckae:
    11/2 cups crushed petit-beurre biscuits
    30 grams melted butter
    3 scant tablespoons brown sugar

    1/4 cup heavy cream
    1/4 cup strong espresso coffee
    3 Tablespoons Irish Cream liqueur
    200 drams bitter-sweet chocolate, roughly chopped
    750 gram cream cheese
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2 egg yolks
    3 tablespoons corn starch
    3/4 cup heavy cream

    Mix together all crust ingredients and flatten at bottom of 26 cm. spring baking tin

    In a small pan, bring 1/4 cup cream to a boil, add coffee and liqueur. Add chocolate, stir until melted and set aside.

    In mixer bowl, beat cheese, sugar, eggs, yolks and cornstarch until uniform. Scrape sides of bowl, then add 3/4 cup cream and beat again. Fold in chocolate mixture, stir until uniform and pour into crust (or just pour cheese mixture into crust, then pour in chocolate mixture and mix with a knife for a 'marbleized' look). Bake at 170 C., 325 F. for 55 minutes – do not open oven door while baking. Turn oven off and let cake cool slowly in closed oven.
    For a white cake, omit espresso and substitute bitter-sweet chocolate with white chocolate. For a truly sinful cake with a black-and-white look, spread cubed brownies over the crust then pour in cheese-white chocolate mix.

    Eet smakelijk and congrats on the driver's licence.

  5. Congrats with your daughter's drivers license Annemiek!!! Wonderful!!!

    I have a No-Bake Cheesecake recipe that my family always enjoys... If your daughter is interested I can send it to you...

    Corrine needs a poke to get stuff up on her blog I think? lol! 8-)
