I did this blog post a while back,
looks like Christmas,
and forgot to publish it.
So here it is....
An easy cheesecake to make,
sweetened with maple syrup and
a Graham cracker crust.
This cheesecake should be made a few days
ahead to give it time to set.
For the crust
1 1/4 cups graham crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
Mix graham crumbs and butter together.
Press onto the bottom and about 1 1/2 up the sides
of a 8inch springform pan.
Cream Cheese can be softened by
placing the completely unwrapped package
in the microwave. Microwave on high 15 seconds,
or just until softened.
Preheat oven to 300deg.F
Ingredients for the filling:
500g cream cheese, softened (2 packages)
2/3 cup maple syrup
With an electric beater, beat the
cream cheese until smooth.
Add the maple syrup and beat until combined.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined.
Pour mixture into pan.
Gently tap to remove bubbles.
Place pan on baking tray and
bake 50 minutes or until filling is just set.
Turn off the oven.
Cool cheesecake in oven for
1 hr with door slightly ajar.
Cool at room temperature.
Remove cheesecake from pan and enjoy.
Serve with ice cream, fruit or cream.
