Cheesecake recipe with orange jello and fresh lemon slices

Weekends are usually for baking. But not the last onеs 😦 I was overloaded with house work and too lazy for anything new. And then it happened that we had to go to buy some new furniture from Ikea. And here it is a beautiful baking tray. With the size that I was looking for, and enough good quality that I would not hesitate to buy. After I went back home the searching started. Books, internet and favorite bloggers- all helped me to find the perfect recipe. I changed the measurements as per my taste and cooking experience. I know that every classic recipe is made with graham crackers, but I prefer to make it with sweet and buttery tea biscuits.  At the end it took awhile to have it done, but it was totally worth it! However I do somehow like the fresh cheesecake more than the bake one. I promise to post a recipe for it too.

Ingredients:

For the crust:

– One package of tea biscuits – approx 200 g

– 150 g melted butter (I used slightly salted)

For the cheesecake:

–  400 g feta cheese

– 200 g full fat cream

– 2 eggs

– 150 g white sugar

For the orange jello:

– 2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice

– 1 tbsp white sugar

– 4 g gelatin

– 2 tbsp water

Preparation:

 

Mix the biscuit crumbs with the melted butter and cover the bottom of the baking tray. Let it cool for 20-30 mins. Preheat the oven to gas 4. Mix all the ingredients  for the cheesecake until you have a nice and smooth mixture. Pour the mix into the tray and bake for around an hour. This is the right time to prepare the orange jello. Mix the ingredients for the jello and bring it to boiling. Then let it cool. Once you bake the cheesecake let it rest until it is really cool and firm. Cover with the still liquid jello mix and keep inside the fridge until it gets firm. Decorate the cheesecake with fresh slices of lemon.

  1. I definitely agree. There are so many different types that all taste great.

    1. Last week we went for a lunch at Cheesecake Factory, believe me or not that was my first time there. So we tried like 4 different cheesecakes- all of them too heavy, too sweet and not enough cheesy. I am still fan of the home made I guess lol

      1. I’ve heard about The Chessecake factory from a friend who lived in Florida for a year. He really enjoyed the red velvet one there. I will have to check it out one day 🙂

      2. Hmm red velvet was not on the list ahahha I will go for a second try 🙂

  2. This looks delicious. We’ve got so many lemons at home that are waiting to be turned into this wonderful dessert 🙂

    1. I do prefer a baked cheesecake though 🙂

      1. I recently tried cheesecake with lime! OMG citrus cheesecakes are going to turn my favorite

      2. I often use either orange or lemon zest in cheesecake fillings. The sourness cuts through the richness of the cheese and tastes great 🙂

      3. Cheesecakes is a recipe where you can use a lot of fantasy. As long as it is creamy and light I am up for it 🙂

    Reblogged this on Chef Ceaser and commented:
    I like this! (Oh how I wish I could eat it!)

  4. Oh my gorgeous. For some reason. I have always loved the tart flavors more than the sweeter ones..this looks perfect.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I hope to have enough time this weekend to make the one without baking. I have in my head the idea of a topping with fresh strawberries
