Lemon Cheesecake with Tangelo
- 200g Marie biscuits
- 75g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 600g full-fat cream cheese at room temperature
- 200g caster sugar
- 200ml sour cream
- 3 large free-range eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Finely grated zest 2 lemon, juice 1
- 50g plain flour for the candied tangelo
- 2 tangelos, sliced cross sections
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- Zest of 3 tangelos
- Flesh of 4 tangelos
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 2 tbsp water
- A squeeze of lemon juice
- For the base of the cheesecake, blitz the Marie biscuits and melted butter in a food processor to form fine crumbs. Pour the mixture into the base of a 20cm loose bottomed cake tin in an even layer and pack it in, smoothing it down using the back of a soup spoon. Chill until needed.
- Heat the oven to 180°C. For the filling, mix the room temperature cream cheese, caster sugar
- and soured cream together in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Gently beat in
- the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla extract and lemon zest and juice. Mix in the flour
- and whisk until smooth. Spoon the mixture over the chilled biscuit base, then level the top.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes until the top is lightly golden and set at the edges but the middle still has a good wobble when the cheesecake is shaken gently. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely before removing from the tin.
- Reduce the heat of the oven to 120°C
- For the candied tangelo, heat the sugar and water in a saucepan until sugar dissolves. Add in the tangelo slices and let it simmer for 20 mins.Remove the tangelo slices and place onto a lined baking tray. Sprinkle over some caster sugar and place in the oven and dehydrate for 20 mins.
- For the tangelo jam, slice the zest into thin strips and cut the flesh into smaller pieces.
- Blanch the zest in a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove and strain and do it another
- This helps remove the bitterness from any pith.
