Bites Tale : May be i just don't have "jodoh" with this recipe!
Look at this cake!
This is the 2nd time I tried to make this cake! I wanted to make it for my dad's birthday. Why is it so difficult? I’ve made lemon cheesecake and mango cheesecake before.. all turned out well.. but, but… making this Pina Colada Cheesecake is killing me!!!
I got the recipe from “Taste of Cold, Sweet Temptations" by Kelly Tang.. it’s supposed to work! I’ve made ice-creams and other cheesecakes from it.. but I just couldn’t make this..
So, I’m going to share this recipe with you (without my step-by-step photos in case i mislead you with the steps) :
Coconut cookie crust base :
110g coconut cookies, crushed
60g unsalted butter, melted
Some canned pineapple, diced & cut into cubes
250g cream cheese, softened
200g sweetened condensed milk
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon rind
260g canned pineapple, drained & blended into puree
1/4 tsp pineapple essence
1 drop yellow colouring (i skip this)
60ml canned pineapple syrup
1&1/2 tbsp gelatine powder
1. For coconut crust : combine coconut cookie crumbs, melted butter and press into a baking pan. Chill in fridge;
2. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and condensed milk until smooth. Add in remaining ingredient A and mix well;
3. Combine canned pineapple juice and gelatine powder. Double boil until gelatine powder dissolved. Pour into the mixture and mix well;
4. Sprinkle some diced pineapple onto the crust and pour over cheese filling. Chill for 3 hours or until firm.
If you are making this, please tell me what’s the result…
