Maple Cheesecake Recipe

As a self-proclaimed cheesecake fanatic, I couldn’t let Christmas in July slip by with out sharing a brand new cheesecake recipe! And oh boy, is that this one a winner. That includes a walnut graham cracker crumb crust and a maple syrup spiked cheesecake filling, it’s taste is so cozy and scrumptious.

And the walnut maple bourbon syrup? Effectively, that’s simply say don’t be shocked if you end up desirous to eat it by the spoonful. Or on prime of ice cream… pancakes… or French toast!

What you’ll Want:

  • 9-Inch Springform Pan: You’ll need to wrap this in heavy obligation aluminum foil to make sure no water leaks in while you place it within the water tub.
  • Meals Processor: Or a high-powdered blender or electrical mixer (hand mixer or stand mixer) is required to beat the cream cheese filling clean.

  • Walnuts: I really like utilizing entire walnuts, however in a pinch, chopped walnuts will suffice. Pecans may also work.
  • Graham Crackers: For ease, I recommend utilizing pre-crushed graham cracker crumbs. However it’s possible you’ll completely purchase graham cracker sheets and pulse them into effective crumbs.
  • Brown Sugar: Gentle brown sugar works greatest, however darkish brown sugar can be utilized. Please notice for those who use darkish brown sugar the recipe can have a barely extra intense molasses taste.
  • Butter: I all the time advocate unsalted butter, however in a pinch, salted butter will work. You’ll need to both scale back or omit the salt known as for.
  • Cream Cheese: Make certain it’s softened to room temperature, in any other case while you beat the cream cheese it gained’t mix evenly. I recommend utilizing block cream cheese, and my favourite model is Philadelphia Cream Cheese!
  • Bitter Cream: Ensure that it’s full-fat and at room temperature. Should you can not discover bitter cream, full-fat plain Greek yogurt is one of the best substitute.
  • Granulated sugar: Provides sweetness. Shouldn’t be diminished or substituted.
  • Vanilla Extract: At all times use actual pure vanilla extract, not synthetic or imitation. On this recipe, a bourbon vanilla can be scrumptious.
  • Eggs: You’ll use entire eggs, in addition to egg yolks. You could save your egg whites for one more recipe (you’ll be able to even freeze them) or discard them.
  • Maple Syrup: Remember to use high-quality maple syrup right here for one of the best taste. It doesn’t have to be grade b or tremendous costly, however it shouldn’t be pancake syrup, which is loaded with synthetic flavoring.
  • Maple Extract: Should you can’t discover this, you’ll be able to omit it. However it does improve the maple taste and is well worth the funding for those who take pleasure in baking maple desserts.
  • Heavy Cream: AKA whipping cream. This shouldn’t be subbed with milk!
  • All-purpose Flour: Offers our creamy cheesecake filling only a little bit of density in texture.
  • Salt: Balances flavors and helps keep away from the recipe tasting overly candy.
  • Bourbon: You should purchase one of many little bottles from the liquor retailer for those who don’t devour bourbon usually. You may additionally use whiskey or rye, as a substitute of bourbon. Or skip this ingredient solely.

Cheesecake Suggestions and Methods:

  1. Remember to press your crust firmly down the underside and sides of the pan. Then cool fully earlier than including the cheesecake batter.
  2. If you bake the crust, you’ll preheat the oven to 350. Don’t neglect to decrease the oven temperature to 325 levels while you take away the crust, because the cheesecake bakes at a decrease temperature.
  3. In a big bowl mix the cream cheese and bitter cream and beat EXTREMELY WELL. That is the place you need to do the vast majority of your beating, scraping the edges and backside of the bowl wanted. You need to get all of the lumps out now, so that you don’t need to over beat the combination later.
  4. Now you’ll add within the sugar and vanilla and beat clean. When you add the eggs, you need to pulse or beat on LOW pace, and simply till mixed. Over beating when you’ve added the eggs will permit an excessive amount of air into the batter, which might trigger to over rising within the oven, and sinking as soon as it’s faraway from warmth.
  5. Place your cheesecake in a water tub. Should you’re new to this course of, take a look at my information on methods to make a straightforward water tub for a cheesecake.
  6. Remember to cool your cheesecake COMPLETELY earlier than slicing!
  7. You may make the topping prematurely and pour right into a small bowl, then gently reheat for 10 to fifteen seconds earlier than including it to the cheesecake.
