New York Cheese Cake


This was my first attempt at making a cheesecake and it turned out pretty nice, once I let it cool down long enough that is!

Base ingredients

  • 1 pack Granita crushed biscuits (250g)
  • 70g melted butter
  • 20g sugar (help to bind the base together)

CREAM Cheese Filling Ingredients

  • 500g cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (not too sweet)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 orange zest
  • 1/2 lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

make the base

  • Crush or use blender to crumb biscuits and combine with melted butter and sugar.
  • Press biscuit mix into greased tray.  Use round bottomed glass or measuring spoon to compress the base firmly.
  • Wrap the bottom and sides of the pan with foil (to prevent water getting in or butter leaking out)
  • Bake in the Z Grills at 190ºC for about 15 minutes or until crust begins to brown slightly. 
  • PREPARE THE FILLING WHILE THE BASE BAKES
  • After removing the base, increase the Z Grills temperature to High (232ºC)

MIX & BAKE

  • Slowly add ingredients to the cream cheese as you mix
  • Pour the mix straight into the base and return to the pre-heated (High) Z Grill.
  • Bake on High (230ºC) for 10-15min (until puffed and slightly brown surface), then drop the temperature setting to 107ºC
  • Cook for 60+ min then complete the wobble test (the sides seem fairly firm and only the centre wobbles a bit)
  • Remove from Z Grill and allow to cool to room temperature then refrigerate for at least 6 hours (lightly covered). 
  • Remember to turn the Z Grill to Smoke setting for 10 minutes then Shut Down Cycle.
