The Cheesecake Truck
The Cheesecake Truck is a song by a guy called King Missile who most of us probably know from the song Detachable Penis.
Elly over at Elly says Opa! is running a very cool blogging event closing today called Eat to the Beat.
As soon as I heard about it I had visions of making marshmallow pies from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. However, my oven door was not returned to me in time to do this, so I decided and unbaked blackcurrant cheesecake to match the Cheesecake Truck song would be my next bets option.
This is a super easy cake to make and its very tasty and looks pretty.
Thanks Elly, I look forward to seeing what others created for this event.
Half a packet gingernuts
50g butter, melted
250g Philadelphia cream cheese
1 tin condensed milk
1/3 cup lemon juice
2 tbs jam (I used blackcurrant)
1 tbs water
Crush biscuits in a food processor. Mix in the melted butter and press down in a springform cheesecake tin. Place in fridge.
Using electric beaters, beat the cream cheese for a few minutes. Add the condensed milk and beat until it becomes a moussy creamy mix. About 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice and mix again. Pour into tin. In a separate bowl, mix the jam and the water so you have a runny consistency. Spoon on top of the cheesecake and swirl through. Place in fridge. It takes a few hours to set.
