So I've decided to post one of my favourite cheese cake recipes today, it's a recipe I used when I did my final Pastry Exam when I was at the South African Chefs Academy. But at that time I used it in a bit of a different way I'll be using it today in the method. For my pastry exam I "deconstructed" the concept of a traditional cheese cake which consisted of a biscuit and butter base, the filling or body and the topping which usually consisted of a fruit coulisse and fresh fruit. My deconstructed version of the cheese cake consisted of a almond crumble instead of the biscuit and butter base. followed by a filling which had the mixed berry puree folded into the filling instead of just simply having it plain. Instead of the conventional fruit coulisse and fresh fruit I decided to make a mixed berry jelly and use it to wrap the filling with to make a cylindrical cheese cake.
So with out further a due here is my recipe for my favourite cheese cake.
Ingredients:160C for 15-20 min till golden brown
