Cynthia's Ribena Cheesecake

Today, I couldn't wait. I made a Ribena Cheesecake yesterday. 

However, it wasn't strong enough in the Ribena department. Of course, me being me, I could not wait to perfect the recipe. Today, I headed into the kitchen to work on an improved version. Also, I did a video tutorial for it! So instead of the usual photographic step by step recipe, here's a video tutorial recipe (:

This recipe is relatively simple so I'd rate it a difficulty level 3 out of 5. It will take about 2 h 30 minutes to complete this project. 

Cynthia's Ribena Cheesecake Recipe

This recipe yields one 8" round cake

270g digestive biscuits
112g unsalted butter

375g cream cheese, preferably room temperature
113g castor sugar
375g plain yoghurt
150g water
3 3/4 tbsp gelatin

125g cream cheese, preferably room temperature
38g castor sugar
125g mixed berries yoghurt
55g ribena cordial
1 1/4 tbsp gelatin

100g water
90g ribena cordial
1 tbsp gelatin


Please refer to this video tutorial for the steps! (: 

Here are some tips and things to note when 'baking' this cake! (:
1) Do be precise with your measurements, especially the gelatin. This is the type of baking tablespoon to use:
2) Do warm up the gelatin. If you do not have a microwave oven, you may boil it over very low fire to warm it up. 
3) Do watch the timing when setting the cake. Remove it from the freezer after the cake is set. Store the cake in the chiller. The cake stores best in an air tight container.
4) The cake contains cream cheese and even if it doesn't melt, I do not recommend leaving this for long in room temperature.
5) Do not leave the batter out for too long when preparing the cheesecake. It will firm up. 
6) The cake should be consumed within 3 - 4 days for maximum freshness. 

Enjoy your cheesecake! (:
