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! 🙂
- Grease your pan with a little butter. This will avoid the batter from sticking to your pan.
- 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).
- Melt 4-5 tablespoons of butter and combine it with the biscuit crumbs.
The butter will hold the crust in the place
- 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.
- 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.
- Combine the cream cheese and the sugar together till its mixed evenly.
Remember that your cream cheese should be softened to avoid any lumps
- 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
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Repeat the same step with the remaining batter.
- Let it bake in the oven for 25-30 mins.
- 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.
