Cheesecake toppings – Strawberry

Strawberry fetish 🙂

You’ll need

  • 500 g Strawberries (washed and hulled)
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (you can use a lesser amount of agave nectar if you with)
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla essence

For this:

  • Make the biscuit base as usual,
  • Make the cheese filling as usual but add 1 tsp of natural vanilla essence to the cheesecake mixture,
  • Bake as per usual conditions,
  • Meanwhile slice up about 6-8 Strawberries depending on size of your strawberries and put aside
  • Put the rest of the berries into a pan with the sugar and start to heat on low heat (DO NOT add any water to this because these guys are full of ‘em, just wait and after only a few minute they’ll begin to spew out red juici-ness :) )
  • When your pan is full of strawberry water you can increase the heat and bring to the boil until it reduces by a quater.
  • Now at this stage you have two suggestions to flow with:

  1. Turn of the heat, blend the fruit mixture and pass through a chinois to obtain a pulp-less smooth coulis
  2. Orrrr if like me you don’t mind texture and chunk, simply turn off the heat and allow to cool.
  • And when the cheesecake is ready to go just pour the coulis all over the cheesecake
  •  Than decorate with strawberries (as in the picture or otherwise)
  • Fin

Strawberry cheesecake: made to order by a strawberry lover so it was something of a strawberry playground going on :-)
