No Bake Cempadak Cheesecake 波罗蜜菜燕乳酪蛋糕

Just received a delicious cempedak from a friend, thought of making cempedak fritter but the weather is really dry and heaty.  Don't think its good for our health. Finally, make a decision to have something chill and easy to digest. And here it is the beautiful no bake cempedak cheese cake. Perfect for all cempedak lover ! However, the cempedak has totally taken over the cream cheese flavour and that is why I added in lime juice to balance it. You may used calamansi juice as well. Please read on for more.

Ingredients (8" springform tray) :
For Crust
140gm    biscuit, grind into fine crumb
80gm   butter,  melted
2 TB    cold milk

For Cream Cheese Filling
250gm   cream cheese, softened at room temperature
250ml    whipping cream, whipped
70gm     icing sugar
150gm   yogurt
2 TB   lime juice
10gm     gelatine (mix with 3 TB  water)
1-1.2 cup   cempedak fruit, in pieces

For Agar-agar Layer
500ml  water
4 tspn   agar-agar powder
80gm  sugar
2 pandanus leaves, rinsed
1/2 cempedak fruit, in pieces

Method :
(1) for the crust, mix biscuit and butter till well cooperated then press it to a 8" springfoam baking pan. And keep chilled for an hour to set.
(2) for cream cheese filling, heating gelatine mixture over double boiler till melted then off the heat & leave it there.
(3) now, beat together cream cheese, sugar & yogurt till fluffy then fold in whipped cream till well mixed.
(4) finally, stir in melted gelatine till everything well cooperated.
(5) fold in cempedak fresh and mix well then transfer cream cheese mixture over to the crust and spread evenly. Keep chilled for 2 hours or till set.
(6) for agar-agar layer, boil together water, sugar, agar-agar powder and pandanus leaves till sugar melted and mixture became a little thick. Off the heat and discharge pandanus leaves.
(7) arrange cempedak fresh over the cake then slowly pour 1/2 cup of agar-agar mixture over the cake, and keep chilled for 15 minutes.
(8)  when ready, pour the remaining agar-agar mixture over the cempedak layer, then use a fork slightly poke through the cake and leave cool. This will helps the jelly to stick well to the cake.
(9)  keep chilled for about 2 hours or till set before serving. Best to leave overnight.

If your behalf is a cempedak lover, maybe you can try one on this coming Valentine's Day. Not anywhere you can buy this ! Yeah, special homemade for a special person. LOL And also perfect colour for the coming celebration as well.
