Yoghurt tofu cheesecake recipe adapted from Vun Lee’s recipe

Ingredients:
200g digestive biscuits
100g butter

300g silken tofu
250g cream cheese
170g castor sugar
15g gelatin
50g water
50g full cream milk
175g greek yoghurt
1 pod Vanilla bean + 1 tsp vanilla extract

Method:
1. Bring all ingredients to room temperature.
2. Crush the digestive biscuits into find crumbs.
3. Melt the butter then pour over the biscuits crumbs. Mix well till mixture resembles wet sand.
4. Place a ring mould on the serving board and pour in the prepared biscuit base. Press firmly until you get an even and dense base. You can also use a spring foam pan if you are not giving the cake away.
5. Place in freezer to set while you prepare the cheesecake mixture.
6. In a small bowl, nuke the water and gelatin for 20 seconds, remove, stir and repeat till gelatin has dissolved. Set aside to cool. Mix milk, tofu, yoghurt, vanilla beans and extract together.
7. In a stand mixer, cream castor sugar and cream cheese until smooth. Add milk, tofu, yoghurt and vanilla beans mixture. Mix until incorporated before adding the cooled gelatin. Continue to beat on low speed until batter is smooth.
8. Remove the ring mould from the freezer and strain the cheese mixture directly into it. Allow cheesecake to set in fridge for a couple of hours before removing the ring. (hint: wrap a hot towel around the ring for easy and clean removal of the cake)
Decorate as desired.

To unmould, wrap a hot towel around the mould for a few seconds before lifting up.

    Dear Jeannie,
    Won’t the ring mould moveable? Can it stand still without moving?How do you make the ring mould stationary on the board?

      It won’t move if you hold on it and press the crumbs in with the other hand. I can’t think of an easier way to get the cake on to the board without messy up!
