After a short break youvetsi.gr is back with a favorite dessert recipe to celebrate: Cheesecake with greek yoghurt and easy strawberry jam.
It’s been awhile since the last update of this blog but personal matters kept me away from the keyboard. But I am back, making a sweet restart with a favorite dessert, a cheesecake.
My own version of this New York style recipe has a greek tatch as i include greek yoghurt, which goes very well with creamy cheese.
For the base
300 g digestive biscuits
100g dark chocolate
90 g butter
For the cake
500 g creamie cheese (philadelphia)
250 g greek yogurt
Juice from 1 lemon
120 g sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the jam
400 gr strawberries
200 gr sugar
2 slices of lemon
Grate the biscuits and add chocolate and melted butter.
Place the biscuit on the bottom of a cake form
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees
In a deep bowl, put the cheese, yogurt, lemon juice and vanilla extract and mix. Add gradually the eggs.
Add the mixture on top of the cookie and place in the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven, let it cool and put in the fridge for 2 hours.
Remove from the oven and add the strawberry jam.
For the strawberry day jam
Wash, clean and cut strawberries in the middle. Put them in a bowl along with the sugar and slices of lemon, cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 hours
In a medium heat pan, simmer the strawberries.
Allow to cool and place on top of the cheesecake.
