Coffee Marble Cheesecake

I was recently invited to a party hosted by a fellow coffee and desserts lover. To this party, I wanted to bring a dessert that combined her two favorite things. This recipe is incredible easy to make even though it looks incredibly fancy. Hope you like it! 🙂

Instructions

  1. Grease your pan with a little butter. This will avoid the batter from sticking to your pan.
  2. Crush the biscuits into a crumb-like texture.
    You can either use a blender, a rolling pin, or any other creative method that works for you. Ensure that there are no large pieces (yet not completely powdered down).
  3. Melt 4-5 tablespoons of butter and combine it with the biscuit crumbs.
    The butter will hold the crust in the place
  4. Press the buttered biscuits at the base of your pan and let it set in the freezer.
    Pour the buttered crumbs into the pan and using a spoon or your hands evenly press it down to create a nice base for your cheesecake.
  5. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius.
    Doing this will make sure that your oven is ready till we prepare the cheesecake mix and that it will bake evenly at a single temperature.
  6. Combine the cream cheese and the sugar together till its mixed evenly.
    Remember that your cream cheese should be softened to avoid any lumps
  7. Add lime, yogurt and vanilla to the mix.
    The lime and yogurt will add that tangy flavor while the vanilla holds the sweetness in place
  8. Add the eggs one at a time.
    Make sure that your eggs are at room temperature and are mixed in really well without any lumps.
  9. Scoop out 5-6 tablespoons of the cheesecake batter into a separate bowl and add your coffee to it.
    You can decide to add a little more sugar or more coffee depending on your tolerance to bitter coffee.
  10. Layer half the plain cheesecake batter in your pan evenly followed by dolloping 2-3 tablespoons of the coffee batter.
    Using a butter knife or a toothpick lightly swivel around the batter to create nice marble-like effect.
  11. Repeat the same step with the remaining batter.
  12. Let it bake in the oven for 25-30 mins.
  13. Set it in the fridge till you’re ready to serve!
    Let it set for at least 4 hours. Bring it to room temperature before you serve it.
