Mango Cheese Cake ( Baking Partners Challenge )


Mango Cheese Cake is a heavenly dessert. The yummy cheese cake combined with the king of fruits - Mango makes a killer combo.

Though making it in a loose bottom pan is ideal I made it in muffin pan as I didnt have the spring bottom pan and the mini cheese cakes were true beauties.


Yes Mango Cheese cake was the challenge for this months Baking Partners  a group started by my blogger friend  Swathi of .zestysouthindiankitchen.

Since I  had made some other cheesecake varieties  earlier I did not have much trouble in making this one but earlier I  had used fresh cream along with the strained yogurt. This recipe though did not have the fresh cream turned out very soft and moist. Use of china grass instead of gelatin which I otherwise use was also a major change. Would love to try other variations in future with these basic changes.

The detailed explaination of the recipe ensured that I didnt go wrong anywhere.

Thanks to the Baking Partners Group for letting me experiment with my favourite cheesecake recipe.

    1. Thnks Swathi , the fact that I did not have a loose spring bottom pan made me do this.
      Sometimes such challenges and drawbacks make us more creative...
