Green Tea Cheesecake


I am using my new 20cm tart pan with removable base & green tea powder which I had bought in HK for this bake. This tart pan is really a best buy! Why? Because PH is selling this exact 20cm tart pan for $18+! But I got this in HK for just $5! ;)



Green Tea Cheesecake (Recipe adapted & modified from Anncoo Journal)

Ingredients
An 20cm tart base

Fillings:
250g Cream cheese
80g castor sugar
50g Whipping cream
4g Green Tea powder
2Tbsp Gelatine powder dissolved in 150g water
200g Whipped fresh cream
1 satchel Jasmine tea powder

Method:
1. Cut open the satchel & put the tea powder into the whipping cream. Add in green tea powder & warm for a few minutes. Set aside to infuse for around 10 mins & strained the mixture.

2.Beat cream cheese & sugar together. Slowly add in whipping mixture until smooth, then add in melted gelatine, mix well.

3. Lastly fold in whipped fresh cream with a spatula, fold well and pour onto tart.

4.Let it set in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.

5.Remove cheesecake from tart case, mix 1/2 Tbsp green tea powder with 1/2 Tbsp of icing sugar & dust on cake.
