BUON COMPLEANNO PAPÀ 🎂 Special celebration today for my daddy’s bday 🥳
His cake wish was cheesecake! The readers who have been following me since a while might know that it’s my summer favorite☀️🤩 this time, I prepared a PEACHES ‘n’ CREAM CHEESECAKE with fresh peaches and #homemade peach jam 🍑
Start with melting 125 gr of butter and blending 225 gr of Digestives cookies. Mix the two ingredients and put the mixture at the bottom and on the sides of a cake tin, previously covered with baking paper. Use a spoon to make the butter-cookie dough flat. Put the cake-base in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat the oven at 180°C and prepare the cream. You need 2 eggs: Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Whip the yolks with 100 gr of sugar, then add 250gr of ricotta, 250 gr of mascarpone and 1 tbsp of baking flour. Then, in a separate bowl whip the egg whites until white and spongy. Add the egg whites to the cream, while stirring gently. Last, pour the cream on the top of the cookie base.
Bake the cheesecake for 30 minutes. Let the cake cooling down completely before storing it in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
Final decorations with a layer of peach jam and sliced fresh peaches. Store the cheesecake in the fridge until serving.
