Baked Vanilla Cheesecake - Glutafin gluten free recipes

A deliciously creamy cheesecake with a sweet, sharp fruit topping. A baked cheesecake has a slightly different texture to a normal cheesecake, so if you haven't tried making one before, why not give this one a go?





Preparation time:
20 minutes

Cooking time:
45 minutes

Oven temperature: 170 C / Gas mark 3
Makes:
1 x 20cm/8" cheesecake/12 portions



Ingredients

Biscuit base:


  • 1 x 200g packet Glutafin Biscuits
  • 125g/4.5 oz Butter (melted)


Filling:


  • 300g/11oz Soft full fat cream cheese (such as Philadelphia)
  • 300g/11oz Soured cream
  • 3 Medium sized eggs
  • 200g/7oz Caster sugar
  • 2 x 15ml tbsp Cornflour
  • 2 x 15ml tbsp Natural extract of vanilla


Topping:


  • 150g/5oz Prepared fruit (raspberries, blackcurrants, strawberries, kiwi or mango are all ideal)




Method

1. Grease the sides and base of a 20cm/8" loose base deep round cake tin.

2. Place Glutafin Biscuits into a sturdy freezer bag and bash to a fine crumb with a rolling pin. Combine with the melted butter and spoon into the cake container. Push crumb firmly with the back of a dessert spoon to get a smooth crumb base.

3. Beat filling ingredients together either in a food processor or with a balloon whisk until combined. Spoon over the biscuit base.

4. Bake for 45 minutes or until the filling is just set (but with a slight wobble in the centre) but it is not browned on top. Turn off the oven and leave in the oven until the cheesecake is totally cold.

5. Remove from the container and chill until required. Decorate with prepared fruit just before serving. Eat within 5 days.


Tip: The recipe works equally well using Glutafin Digestives or Tea Biscuits

To freeze: Freeze without the fruit topping. Cut into single portions and open freeze until firm. Seal in an airtight freezer bag and freeze for up to one month. Defrost for 2 hours before serving. Decorate with fruit as required.

So easy to make and absolutely delicious. I made it not with vanilla but by adding two lemons, adding zest into cheese mixture and thickening the juice of both lemons with a little arrowroot and caster sugar and spread this on the top. Scrummy and I will certainly make this again.
