Plain Cheese Cake with Peaches

I ate another scrumptious cheesecake last Thursday (thanks to As who paid for the cake). I still wanna eat more of it hehehee...

Yesterday, I made a 2nd attempt. I asked for a recipe from Kak Mahani, again (I think she's been telling me for more than 10 times heheheee). It was a really simple recipe.

Yesterday, I made a 2nd attempt with the simple recipe. I alter the recipe a bit though. Alhamdulillah, it turn out better. I shall rate it as 7/10! hehehee.. (tak lah sedap sangat pun..)

Cheescake recipe

2 cups of cookie crumbs (I used tea biscuits)
5 tblsp
n butter

400g Philly cream cheese
5 eggs
1 can plain yogurt
1 cup sugar
1 tspn vanilla essence
1 tspn lemon rinds
3-4 slices of peach

1 can of liquid whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tspn vanilla essence

To prepare the base:
Mixed them together. Spread it at the bottom of a baking pan. Press it till compact and bake for 10 minutes to ensure the crumbs stick together.

The cake:
While baking the base, beat egss and sugar together. Mix cream cheese, yogurt, lemon rinds and vanilla essence. Add in chopped peach slices. Pour the batter into the prebaked base. Steam baked the cake at 175 C for about an hour or slightly golden in color.

The topping:
Whip together whipping cream, sugar and vanilla essence till soft peak. Spread the cream all over the cake. Decorate the peach slices on top.

Note: steam baked means putting the pan with batter inside another bigger pan filled with water. It is steaming while baking, to prevent burning too soon, cracking and drying.
