Classic Cheesecake / Klasični cheesecake

I’ve been reluctant to make cheese cake for years and years. Well, more scared, than actually reluctant, because I love eating the cake. But creamy cakes always seemed like an enormous challenge to me. I have no idea why I haven’t tried making cheese cake sooner. It’s actually been a breeze and nothing catastrophic emerged out of it. Well, nothing other than a belly full of delicious cake, if you can call that a catastrophe. 😀

Blitz cookies in a food processor, or put in a zip lock bag and bash with a rolling pin until fine and crumbly. Mix cookie crumbs with melted butter and remaining 1 tbsp of sugar and gently press into the bottom of prepared spring form pan. Bake for 4 minutes, remove from oven and immediately reduce heat to 170°C.

Meanwhile prepare cheese filling. Mix all the ingredients until creamy and pour over baked cookie base and level with spatula. Bake for 25 minutes at 170°C.

Let the cake sit on counter until cool and then refridgerate before serving for at least 4-5 hours, but best overnight.


Godinama me bezveze bilo strah probati napraviti cheesecake, iako ga stvarno jako volim jesti. Kremasti kolači su mi se uvijek činili kao nekakav enormni izazov. Iskreno, nije mi jasno zašto nisam prije pokušala napraviti cheesecake jer je stvarno lako i nikakva se katastrofa nije desila. Osim trbuha punog fine torte, ako to možete nazvati katastrofom. 😀

SASTOJCI:

(za jedan cheesecake promjera 22 cm / 12 šnita / 37,07 kn za cijeli / 3,09 kn po šniti)

Za bazu:

150 g Petit-Beurre keksa (5,50 kn)

2 žlice šećera, podijeljene (0,05 kn)

¼ šalice rastopljenog maslaca (4,00 kn)

Za sloj sira:

500 g svježeg ili krem sira, omekšanog na sobnoj temperaturi (14,00 kn)

2 žlice soka od limuna (1,00 kn)

2 jaja (3,00 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

3 žlice šećera (0,07 kn)

Za sloj vrhnja:

2 šalice milerama (9,00 kn)

2 žlice šećera (0,05 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 250°C. Namastite kalup za pečenje maslacem, obložite dno i stranice papirom za pečenje, posipajte dno 1 žlicom šećera i stavite sa strane. Sameljite kekse u multipraktiku, ili ih stavite u vrećicu za smrzavanje i udrite po njima valjkom za tijesto dok ne dobijete fini prah. Pomiješajte mrvice keksa sa preostalom žlicom šećera i rastopljenim maslacem i lagano prstima utisnite u dno kalupa. Pecite 4 minute, izvadite iz pećnice i smanjite temperaturu na 170°C.

U međuvremenu pripremite kremu od sira tako da izmiksate sve sastojke dok ne dobijete jednoličnu kremastu smjesu. Istresite kremu na pečene kekse, poravnajte i pecite 25 minuta na 170°C. Dok se to peče, pripremite kremu od vrhnja tako da sve sastojke izmiksate u glatku smjesu. Nakon 25 minuta prelijte kremu od vrhnja preko torte, poravnajte i stavite u ugašenu pećnicu na 5 minuta.

Ostavite tortu da se ohladi na sobnu temperaturu i potom ju prije posluživanja stavite u hladnjak na 4-5 sati, ali najbolje preko noći.
