Hello everyone! I am a really lucky girl. You ask why? Let me ask you a question. Don’t they say happiness is when you get to do things that you love doing? Well, that’s me. I get to do things that I love, thanks to my husband! In him, I have found a partner who motivates me to follow my passion, which happens to be cooking. Well, he is also my assurance that all that I cook gets eaten! Also, because of him I got to combine my love for baking and his love for desserts and make this delicious MANGO CHEESECAKE!
It was all in my head!
Ever since I came to the States, I have been loving the cheesecakes that we get here. Goes without saying, every meal we have outside, inadvertently ends with a cheesecake. Both of us totally love them. My husband, Nishant, has been requesting me to try my hand at making one at home. What he did not realize was that I was secretly scared of cheesecakes! I knew that cheesecakes are a lot of hard work. Or so I thought!
My fear and hesitation to make one myself was a result of my ignorance, it turned out. So I did some research and found the perfect recipe for me! Cheesecake may seem like an intimidating project but it truly is not! Trust me. It was all in my mind. Once I made it myself, I realised that it is going to be my ‘thing’ from now on!
Now let me give you a few tips for making the perfect cheesecake. Firstly, in order to prevent the surface from cracking, what you need to do is let the cake cool slowly after baking. For this, let the cake remain inside the oven with the oven door left ajar after the cake is baked. This allows the cake to come to room temperature slowly over a period of a few hours. Secondly, be patient! The cake needs to chill overnight, at least. So it would be good if you make it one day in advance.

So, without further ado, let’s get started with the recipe!
I hope you enjoyed my recipe! Do try this out and share your experiences with me.
Till next time…
