Sweet Plum Sour Cream Cheesecake

What do you know! It's Saturday again. Wow, just imagine how time flies.....we're already in the middle of April. And Mother's Day is just another few weeks away. I bet some of you already start planning some luscious bakes for the coming celebration. Emmm.......NOT ME! I always plan my bakes at the very last minute. Yes, bad habit. hahaha..... However, sometimes that isn't completely bad. For instance, this plum cheese cake....it's my last minute baked too, without a plan or anything. It's all about the 'CLICK' ! You know what I mean, right!

So, here's what I did.
Ingredients :
For Base
200gm  digestive biscuit (chocolate Tiger biscuit), finely crushed
50gm  toasted pistachio, roughly chopped
125gm  butter, melted
(mix all ingredients to combine and then press it to a 9" tray, keep refrigerated till set)

For Fillings
500gm  cream cheese, softened
1 tbsp  corn flour
3 eggs
100gm  sugar
230gm  sour cream
100ml  sweet plum puree
2 tbsp  lemon juice

Method :
(1) beat together cream cheese and sour cream till smooth.
(2) add in the remaining ingredients and mix till well combined.
(3)  pour mixture to biscuit base tray and then bake at preheated oven at 160'C for about 90mins or till set.
(4)  once it's done, leave to cool completely before keep refrigerated overnight which is the best. And serve one the following day.

For Sweet Plum Sauce
3/4 to 1 cup  sweet plum sauce or puree
1 tbsp  sugar
1 tbsp  gelatine (soaked with 1/3 cup water)


Method :
(1) simmer plum puree and sugar with a non-stick pot till lukewarm, for plum puree..
(2) then stir in soaked gelatine till dissolved, do not boil them. For plum sauce, melt gelatine over a double boiler then stir in & mix well with the warmed sauce.
(3) remove from heat and leave it slightly cool before spread over the cake top.
(4) keep refrigerated till set before serving.
I especially adored the top layer of fresh plum jelly. Simply irresistible. See, what I mean ! It's not a bad idea either even if baking without a plan. It makes your day a little easier.

I plan about - 24 hours ahead of time. Who knows what I will be in the mood for two weeks from now? Loving this - the plum sauce is perfect. Never used corn flour with my cheese mixture - thinking it adds a little heft.

I just love the idea of using plum sauce with cheesecake. Plums are kind of the forgotten fruit, but I love to eat them! Also, the cake is very stunning. Wish I had a slice. Enjoy the weekend!
