This is one of the recipe which i wanted to try for quite a long time. Finally i made it few days back and it was a super hit. I have tried so many versions of no baked cheesecakes..But i have never made a baked cheesecake so far, because i thought that it needs cream cheese. But when i saw this recipe i decided to try it and use hung yogurt instead of cream cheese. It turned out just great..The cool thing about this is, it is eggless. i will be sharing a baked cheesecake with eggs as well..
This is a pretty easy to make cheesecake. You just need a handful of ingredients to make this. The more cool thing is you dont need cream cheese to make this cheesecake. So you can easily call this recipe as cheesecake without creamcheese..I used hung curd to make this, i took some thick yogurt and poured in some cheesecloth lined over a sieve and put it in fridge and let it drip overnight, the next day i got the beautiful thick hung yogurt which can be easily substituted for cream cheese.
Unsalted Butter - 75 grams melted
Sour Cream - 1 ¼ cup (Recipe here)
Cornflour / Cornstarch - 1 tblspn
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
Keep cream cheese and sour cream at room temp. Preheat oven to 180 degree c.
Now take cream cheese, sugar in a bowl and whip till creamy.
Now add in vanilla, cornflour and whip again till mixed.
Now add in sour cream and fold gently.
pour this over the crust. Now place the tin over sheets of foil and wrap it on the sides, so no water gets in.
Now put this in a high sided baking pan and fill with hot water to create a water bath.
Put this in oven and bake for 30 mins to 35 mins till the top is set.
Now remove it and let it cool for few hours.
Now put this in fridge for few hours.
Top with your favourite toppings and serve.
