Matcha Cheesecake

22 May

I decided to make another no bake cheesecake with the remaining cream cheese I had left over. Instead of making an ordinary cheesecake, I decided to make something extra. I have been reading alot on double baked cheesecakes and hence decided to make a double cheesecake as well. I considered making azuki cheescake but decided against it as it would be too sweet, hence I decided to make a baked new york style cheesecake instead.

I first made the new york cheesecake in silicone molds. Once that was completed, I proceeded to make the no bake matcha cheesecake. I first boiled the milk and then whisked the matcha green tea into the milk ensuring all granules were melted. Then added the cream cheese to the mixture. To prevent lumps and a creamy texture, I heated the creamcheese in a bain marie again. I then placed the gelatin in cold water to let it bloom and melted the gelatin in a bain marie as well. Once the gelatin has melted, I added this into the cream cheese mixture.

To assemble the matcha cheesecake, I placed the sable cookies at the bottom, and poured in some matcha mixutre and added the baked new york cheesecake and then topped it off with the remaining green tea mixture. As a decoration, I created a white chocolate border and painted on some red food colouring to create contrast. I then topped it off by decorating with strawberry pearls and freezed dried strawberries. DSC_0339

Matcha Cheese Cake (found here)
200g Arnotts Nice biscuits (or any other plain sweet biscuits)
100g unsalted butter, melted
150ml pure (whipping) cream
170g cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup caster sugar
100ml milk
1 1/2 tsp matcha powder (adjust to taste, I like mine a bit stronger)
1 1/2 tsp powdered gelatin

As a note: Instead of using new york cheesecake, as they are of a completely different consistency, I would recommend maybe trying a creme brulee or custard instead for next time. Enjoy.

    I love the strawberry pearls. They make the cake look super cute.
