We've drawn up a little guide to help any of you who want the 'technical' side to making cheesecakes without any surface cracking. Often this happens, but once you read our guide you'll know how to avoid it. Of course it doesn't matter too much if you're going to decorate or cover the top of the cheesecake, but for the perfectionists out there, take a read of How To Avoid Cheesecake Surface Cracking

Prep Time

15 minutes

Cook Time

10 + 45 minutes

Yield

6 - 8 Persons

Ingredients

The Crust

1 1/2 cups graham crackers
1 cup walnuts
6 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tsp cocoa

Filling

8oz white chocolate ( I use Ghirardelli)
24 oz cream cheese( room temp)
1 cup sugar*
3 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tsp almond extract
3 large eggs( room temp)

  • This cheesecake is very sweet so if you don't have a particularly sweet tooth, reduce the sugar quantity down to 1/2 cup.

Topping

3/4 cup Dulce De Leche. See HERE if you would like to make your own
1 1/2 Tablespoons Fleur de del salt

If you can't find this type of salt you can use coarse sea salt. I asked at Whole Foods and they suggested their brand of salt that was close to fleur de sel ...it needs to melt on your tongue but not on the cake.

Instructions

1. Combine Graham crackers with walnuts in food processor until finely ground then add butter and cocoa and pulse until well combined.

2. Press into a 10-inch springform pan lined with parchment and bake crust for 10 minutes at 350 F

3. Remove and set aside and raise oven temp to 425°

4. Beat cream cheese (room temp always makes it so much easier, with an electric mixer on low to med speed until smooth.)

5. Add the sugar, flour, and almond extract until well combined then add in egg 1 at a time until well incorporated.

6. Melt the white chocolate by placing broken-up chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at 30-second intervals until completely melted.

7. Now, add melted white chocolate and combine the mixture.

Pour the cheesecake filling over the crust and pop it in the oven at 425° F. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat down to 250F ( no need to take the cake out) and continue cooking for additional 35 minutes.

TIP:

You can place the cheesecake in a water bath just in case it should crack on the surface. To do this, simply cover the outside of the pan very well with foil or a large roasting bag then place the pan in a larger baking pan and fill that pan halfway up with boiling water, then carefully place in the oven, or you can line the outside with parchment and foil so the water can't get through into the cake pan.

How to Avoid Cheesecake Cracks

8. Allow to cool. Leave the cheesecake in the oven without opening the door for around 45 minutes.

This will reduce the chance of the surface cracking as it will cool down gradually as the oven cools down.

9. Once cooled remove from spring form pan and gently remove parchment paper and place on serving plate or what ever container you will serve cheesecake on.

10. Salted caramel: Use Lovefoodies homemade dulce de leche recipe.

( I always make this the day before as I don't always have time after work) Pour a generous amount of caramel on top and salt with fleur de del salt and a sprinkling of nuts before serving.
