Cheesecake with blood orange
Hi Dudes,

on my kitchen tour 2013 I also stopped by in Karlsruhe and prepared a very tasty cheesecake together with my aunt. I have never posted the recipe and therefore I do it today. The taste of the blood oranges fit perfectly to the cream cheese and the base made of chocolate cookies. My favorite cheesecake so far. 

PREP:  20
COOK: 45 min + 30 min
LEVEL: medium

Chocolate cookies / 135 g
Butter / 40 g

Cream cheese / 675 g
Sugar / 225 g
Vanilla sugar / 5 g
Wheat flour / 35 g
Sour cream / 75 g
Eggs / 3 small
Baking powder / 0.25 teaspoon

Blood Oranges / 3
Sugar / 2 tablespoons


1. Take a round baking dish with a diameter of 20 cm and cover the bottom with baking paper. Crumble the cookies together with the butter and cover the bottom of the baking dish with the mixture. Preheat the oven at 175°C. 

2. Whisk the cream cheese, sugar and vanilla sugar for 3 min. Then add the wheat flour, baking powder, sour cream and the eggs and mix all ingredients until you get a smooth dough.

3. Fill the dough into the baking dish, place it into the oven together with an extra fireproof bowl filled with water. Bake the cake for 45 min at 175°C. After that continue baking for 30 min at 160°C. Let it cool down. 

4. Fillet the oranges and use the orange juice that is left to heat it up in a pot together with two tablespoons of sugar. Let it boil until you get a sirup and add the orange fillets at the end. Place the fillets on top of the cake and frost the cake with the sirup. 

Enjoy with whipped cream and a mint leaf.
