Thermomix Baked Raspberry Ripple Cheesecake (as seen on My Kitchen Rules)

Baked raspberry swirl cheesecakeCheesecakes are a sinch with the Thermomix and after hearing all the positive comments around the table about this dessert, I had to give it a try!

Could it be the best cheesecake you’ve ever had? You be the judge… Personally, I was a little surprised at how simple it was ingredients-wise, but the simplicity allows the raspberry flavour to sing with that yummy biscuit base. Delicious.

Ingredients

  • 200g plain biscuits
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 125g butter, cut into cubes
  • 750g cream cheese, at room temperature, cut into rough squares
  • 160g caster sugar (I used the bought stuff to stay true to the recipe, but you could use Thermomix “caster sugar”, i.e. raw sugar milled for 3 seconds on speed 9)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 100g frozen raspberries, slightly thawed (Note: given the frozen berry situation at the moment you might like to use fresh raspberries instead)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Add butter to bowl and melt 3min/70degrees/speed 2.
  3. Add biscuits to bowl and crush with butter 10sec/speed 8.
  4. Press biscuit mixture over base of a 24cm round cake pan with a removable base. Refrigerate until required. (I lined my base with baking paper and closed the tin around it).
  5. Clean and dry bowl.
  6. Add the cream cheese and mix for 10sec/speed 8.
  7. Scrape down and add the butterfly. Mix for 45sec/speed 4.
  8. Add the caster sugar and vanilla extract. Combine 30sec/speed 4 with MC off. Leave the machine running and add 1 egg at a time, allowing about 15 seconds for each egg to fully combine.
  9. Pour mixture over biscuit base. Add frozen raspberries, then swirl with a teaspoon to combine. (A figure 8 motion creates a nice swirl).
  10. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until just set with a slight wobble in the centre. Cool in oven with the door ajar, then refrigerate for 2 hours.

Bon Appétit!

Note: this recipe was converted using the TM5. If at step 8 your mixture splatters with the MC off, put it back on 🙂
