Mocha Sour Cream Cheese Cake (Non-Baked)


This is what I have been missing out for a very long time....chocolaty cheesecake. I often used cream cheese on my cheesecake but some other time I will use freshly made ricotta cheese. I found that ricotta cheese is quite easy to make at home, so there is no doubt that I'm using it quite often. Other than that this is actually my first attempt trying to use raw eggs on my non-baked cheesecake. I'm not sure about others but I found that it is pretty weird for not cooking the eggs ! hahaha..... However, luckily the cake doesn't smell like raw eggs at all; otherwise, there will be no one touching the cake. *sigh*

Ingredients :
For Crust
150gm  biscuit, finely crushed
50gm   roasted coconut shreds
100gm   butter, melted
(combine all ingredients and mix well then press it to a 9" spring foam tray and keep refrigerated for about an hour or till set)

For Filling
(A)
200gm  chocolate, melted
1 tbsp   instant coffee powder

(B)
500gm  homemade ricotta cheese
200ml   sour cream
2 egg yolk

(C)
2 egg white
2-1/2 tbsp  sugar

(D)
1 tbsp  gelatine soaked into 1/2 cup  water then melt over a pot of hot water.

Method :
(1) melt chocolate together with coffee powder over a pot of boiling water then set aside.
(2) beat ingredients (B) till smooth & creamy, then stir in mixture (A) & mix well, set aside.
(3) now, whisk egg white together with sugar till stiff.
(4) fold mixture (C) into mixture (A) & (B) till well combined and then stir in melted gelatine.
(5) finally, transfer mixture to cold crust and keep refrigerated overnight or till set.

For Mocha Ganache
250gm  chocolate, chopped
100ml   whipping cream
1 tbsp   instant coffee powder
(Bring cream & coffee powder to boil in a saucepan, add in chocolate, stir till melted. Then set aside to cool or spreadable. Finally ganache it to the cake. It's best to chill before serving..)

The flavour of mocha is so so very tempting. Good that I've been behaving well that day and waited patiently for the cake to set in the fridge. Yes, I've been good and I granted myself two slices of it after that. hahaha....... Enjoy everyone!

hi, i've also tried using raw eggs before and it doesnt give any eggy taste but now over at my place here we have pasteurised eggs, so it's also another option that we can use. Your cake sets very beautifully, i can imagine how creamy it is , i would love to have a slice now..even at this time!!

I love no bake cakes and treats in the summer. It's just too hot to turn on the oven...unless I "have to". :) This is one gorgeous cake.

So glossy and pretty! I especially like that it isn't baked, as it is so hot here.

This cheese cake calls my name. I must try this at home. Its non-bake and that's what I need the most. Every time I bake a cake in the oven, it burns. I don't know why. lol
