Peppermint Matcha Green Tea Cheesecake
I gained weight after just two weeks of holiday ;-) so I just kind of chilling trying to slow down ..hoping for a magic but can’t resist got to be in the mood so here I am.. baking again! This time, I opted for a smaller version and a touch of organic experimenting.
Though the colour is pleasing to the eyes, the taste is not really that exciting! For me Cheesecake is not cheesecake if there’s no sweetness in it!
1 small pk of tea biscuits (crushed)
1/3 cup almond meal
1/3 cup melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
1 300 G Philadelphia cream cheese
1 200 oz thick cream
1 tsp Matcha green tea powder
1/2 tsp peppermint
2 eggs + 1 egg yolk
3/4 white sugar
organic matcha green tea
Pre heat oven Gas mark # 3
Combined the crushed tea biscuits, sugar, and almond meal with melted butter. Spread into the springform pan and set aside.
Mix cream cheese adding sugar and egg alternately one at a time. Add peppermint,green tea powder, mix thoroughly then add thick cream. Combined and mix all ingredients until creamy. Pour into the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 1 hr, slightly open the door of the oven for another 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool for another 1hr before putting it in the fridge for another 4 hours or overnight.
