Bake Cheese Cake?

Ok this is by popular demand and my own recipe for baked cheese cake. Once you get the basics right you can make variations of this lovely dish and be an expert at it with absolutely no hassle.
Firstly think ahead a cheese cake is a cheese cake and should primarily consist of what? well cheese. Ideal cheese to use for a baked cheese cake is Mascarpone but Philadelphia Cream Cheese would do fine. The end result will also depend a lot on the quality of the chocolate used (ideal would be 80% coco Belgium Chocolate)

Prep time: 10min
Baking time: 40min
Temp: 180c

120 g of Sugar
1 block of cream cheese (250g)
2 regular bars of good chocolate (400g) Chopped
4 eggs
250 g of digestive biscuits (or local Mari) crushed
50g of melted butter

The base
1. Get your hands on a flip bottom baking tin (once baked you will be able to push the bottom of the tin up to take out the cheese cake)
2. Mix the crushed biscuits with the butter. If a chocolate base is required mix in some melted chocolate as well (simply met in a glass bowl over hot water)
3. Press the mixture to bottom of the baking tin using the side of a rolling pin which is flat.

Easy Peasy Method
1. Squash the cream cheese using a folk on a plate and soften it up.
2. Put eggs in a mixing bowl with sugar and beat until soft and fluffy.
3. Add the cream cheese in while beating a little at a time or the mixture will curdle.
4. Add the Chocolate the same way while beating.
5. Pour the mixture in to the preped tin.
6. Bake @ 180c in a preheated oven for 40min.
7. Take out and leave to cool.

Second Method
1. Same as above.
2. Separate the white and the yolks of the eggs. Beat the yolks with the sugar.
3. Same as above.
4. Same as above.
5. Beet the egg white until stiff. Then fold gently in to the mixture.
6. Pour the mixture in to the preped tin.
7. Bake @ 180c in a preheated oven for 40min.
8. Take out and leave to cool.

You can make a baked blue berry cheese cake. If this is whats prefered then use fresh berries in the mixture. The only problem you will come across is the they will try to sink when it's baking.

Even the cold cheese cake can be made so that you won't taste the egg. Well this can be done probably by using 1/2 the amount of egg or none. If not using any egg just fold in some whipped cream lets say around 150g and that should do the trick. Might take longer to set.

If serving to someone pregnent please don't serve anything with raw egg in it.
