Pillow Cheesecake with Salted Caramel Sauce


In cake I prefer cheesecake and that to.. New york cheesecake.

The texture and the mouth feel to every bite of this cheesecake is heavenly…

The sourness, creaminess n silkiness of cream cheese creates a magic.

Its a delicious way to end a meal or make some one feel special..

There’s nothing better than prefect slice of cheesecake😊

Here is my version of cheesecake “Pillow cheesecake with caramel sauce”

Biscuit base:

200 gms melted  butter

2 tbsp castor sugar

2 packets Digestive biscuits

Preheat the oven to 180 deg, Crush the biscuits in a food bag using a rolling pin. Put the crumble into a bowl with the melted butter and mix well. Press it into the bottom of a 10 or 12 inch spring form pan. Bake for 10 minutes.Let cool completely.
Cheesecake Batter:
2 packets of 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
120 gms butter softened
1/4 cup sour cream
1 cup sugar
5 eggs
2 Tb. cornstarch, sifted
1 tbsp lemon juice
Combine the cream cheese, butter, sugar, lemon juice, sour cream and cornstarch in the bowl and whip with electric hand mixie until mixed well but do not over beat the mixer.  Add the egg yolks one at a time and beat just until mixed. Beat  the egg whites until stiff. Gently fold them in the cream cheese batter.
Pour the batter over the biscuit base. Wrap your spring form pan aluminium foil, place it in a large baking pan, add hot water to come up halfway up the side of the pan. Bake at 180 for 1 1/2 hours and let your cake cool in there for 30 minutes. After sometime keep the cake in the fridge to completely cool down for at least 6-8 hours, do not try to de mould.
