Lemon Cheesecake

Hi folks
Does anyone have a recipe for a non baked cheesecake? I would like to know what ingredients to use which are available in Turkey. I know normally you would probably used condensed milk but as that is not available in Turkey I'm stumped! I'm drooling already!

Thanks

Re: Lemon Cheesecake

I make this cheesecake every week, just change the topping depending on whats in season. Everything needed can be bought in Tansas. I use a 10 inch springform tin, with the bottom slightly greased with butter

For the base;
1 and a half packs of ETİ Burçak YULAFLI biscuits (the nearest i have found to digestives)
125g of butter i use Pinar

For the cheesecake;
250g pack of labne (cream cheese) get sade as its plain...some have herbs added!
75g of ricotta cheese (only 1 lira for 150 g in KIPA!!)
500ml of cream (cartons)
1 vanilla sachet
30g of sugar (i ground with a hand blender to make caster sugar)

For a topping i often use fresh strawberries, instead of the jole glazes that you can get in the sachets (they dont taste) i use a jelly, just making up less water than stated.

First i melt the butter in a pan making sure it doesnt seperate, smash the biscuits up and mix in. Put in tin making sure you press together using the back of a spoon.
Put in fridge until firm.

For the cheesecake mix the labne and ricotta cheese together. Whisk the cartons of cream with the sugar until it forms soft peaks and then fold into the cheese mixture. Add vanilla and fold in. Put into pan on top of base mix. Refrigerate.

Wash strawberries and cull. i slice in half and arrange on top of the cheesecake. Make up a jelly using 1 quarter of the water stated. Let the jelly cool then pour over cheesecake. Refrigerate immediatly and let jelly set.

Before serving just run a sharp knife around the tin then open (if springform tin).
I always serve with grated chocolate over and a strawberry dipped in chocolate at the side.

Hope you like it if you make it!

Have just realised that you asked about lemon cheesecake DOH! I would add the zest of half a lemon and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the cake mix...you may have to add a little more cream to keep the firmness.
On top i would whisk cream with a small amount of lemon zest and a small shot of lemon juice, then pipe on top or serve at the side...and maybe grate some white chocolate on the top.

Re: Lemon Cheesecake

I have bookmarked also - had to take a jaunt to the shops earlier on and kept the ingredients in my head. Sadly couldn't get the Ricotta but soon will cos KIPA's on the way - woo hoo - just took a look at the building work and it's any day now - Fethiye moving up the 21st century charts

Re: Lemon Cheesecake

Bubskar, when you have your KIPA they have 1 lira sales. During that time it is possible to make this cheesecake for about 6 lira with the topping.
I went to our local one last night and have just made four 1.5 kilo banana breads for less than 5 lira! I just freeze them...i have cut our shopping bill by about a third shopping there. Hope you like it!

Thanks for the tip Millilove - yes I am a bit excited about the opening of KIPA (sad I know) but I like to look around the Antalya one when I'm up that way (it's the nearest from here) -lot's of bargains to be had - unlike you with a family to feed, I only bake occasionally cos it's only me eating the goodies I bake and also I give away to friends. I love cheesecake however and the best I have come across is the berry one in BIM, but your recipe sounds good especially now that the strawberries are available. Unfortunately I don't have any "jelly" anymore so will have to resort to the Turkish jole (what is that stuff and does anyone buy it? - yuk)

Re: Lemon Cheesecake

What's up, sometimes you can be lucky and find condensed milk in the shops that tend to pander to us foreigners. Certainly there is one in Calis selling it. Was thinking of buying some and making coconut ice.....

I use the jelly crystals from TANSAS, they dont do strawberry but the cherry one works ok. The small quick jel sachets here are not great, with no flavour.

Re: Lemon Cheesecake

There are quite a few recipies on the web on how to make condensed milk --try E.HOW and if you have no jelly for the topping cook some chopped fruit in a pan with some sugar and a little water leave to cool and spoon over the cheesecake
