Tiramisu Layered with Chocolate Cake

Image

Once you hear the word Tiramisu, the first thing that you could imagine is a perfect coffee based dessert. Well literally Tiramisu is an Italian word means “to pick me or lift me up”. Since it’s espresso (some pastry chefs use espresso for stronger flavor and effect) or coffee based Tiramisu can really be in a good help for some nightwalkers or have not enough time to sleep so they can be picked up! J

I reconstruct my recipe of Tiramisu, well the tradition way of making this is it will be layered by Lady Fingers and some uses liquors for their Tiramisu like Baileys (Coffee Based Liquor), Kahlua, Brandy, Marsala Wine, etc. In my recipe I omit the liquors since my family is not a fan of those and since my sister really loves chocolate (like so obsess with chocolate) I layered it with chocolate chiffon cake. This is a hit to everyone the taste is well balanced, no taste of wine, really good for people who don’t enjoy Tiramisu with the taste of Liquors.

OREO CHEESECAKE

Image

Oreo Cheesecake is one of the most popular Cheesecake in the world, almost everybody loves the cheesecake however cheesecakes are quite expensive compare to other ordinary cakes that are available in the bakeries. Maybe because of it’s ingredients are really quite expensive especially the cream cheese well it depends what brand of the product because  there are cream cheese that are flavorful and the price are really high and the wisest cream cheese are the average price but with perfect taste for the cheesecake. What I usually use is PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, this is really good and the taste is really perfect for making Cheesecake! My advice is when you finish reading this recipe don’t buy in those stores anymore sometimes they over price, you can make your own Cheesecakes with different varieties.

This recipe of Oreo Cheesecake is a baked cheesecake, if you’re gonna browse my old posts you can notice that I already posted an Oreo Cheesecake recipe but its unbaked, but this one is we’re gonna bake this cheesecake, way more tastier and way more Cheesecake than Unbaked one! So grab your whisks and spatulas and were going to start BAKING!

Ingredients

100g       Oreo Cookies Crushed

60g         Butter, Melted

450g       Cream Cheese, at Room Temperature

90g         Sour Cream

155g       Sugar

8g           All Purpose Flour

3pcs       Eggs

3pcs       Egg Yolks

4ml         Vanilla Extract

14pcs     Oreo Cookies for toppings

Procedure

In a 9-inch Springform pan cover below with Aluminum Foil

To make the crust, combine the Crushed Oreo Cookies to Melted Butter, combine well and press the mixture to the pan

Image

and then put in freezer until ready to use.

Softened the Cream Cheese by passing it to mixer until smooth.

Add in Sugar and mix for a while. Add Sour Cream, flour, then the eggs (drop per piece, beat well) follow the yolks, slowly apply on the batter mixture. Add Vanilla

Image

Keep on mixing till smooth and combined well.

Get the crust and pour the batter over crust.

Bake 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-45 minutes using Bain Marie (How to do it: Get a baking pan (I used pyrex Pan) that can hold your 9inch cheesecake springform pan, then place it there and on that extra pan of yours on where the 9inch was placed fill it with BOILING water in it, you don’t worry about the cheesecake batter to be wet inside, remember you have put the aluminum foil outside the 9inch springform pan, that is to protect the inside batter to be wet by the boiling water outside it)

To check for the Doneness, use a cake tester or just a tooth pick, pierce the cake and when the stick comes out clean no sticky batter then it is already done!

Unmold to pan, and sprinkle some Crushed Oreos on top and fill the top with whole oreos, design by your desire!

Enjoy your Oreo Cheesecake!!

Once You have already mix the wet ingredients combine this into the dry ingredients, and mix it with your spatula or spool, dont over mix it so the bread will not be tough. We want soft bread here. Another if you have Nuts, peanuts you can just combine it into the batter.
