MY JUDAISM MADE ME DO A CHEESECAKE
10 years after a big fail I'm trying again ! Let's do this !
- •This is Florence Kahn recipe book : aka the ultimate Ashkenazy food store/caterer from Rue des rosiers in Paris !It's the blue mosaic store in front of l'as du falafel and you should go there ! I'll go with you ! Florence is a friend of my mum and This is the most VIP i ever feel in Paris
- •*Great news ! Florence's book is now available in English for those of you interested in good Ashkenazy recipes !!! *
- •So you'll need : 1kg of "fromage Blanc" (wordreference isn't translating it, @bookishclaire you may help ?!) it's like not a yoghurt and not cream either, in between ! 3 eggs, 120gr of sugar, 90gr of flour, a pinch of salt and vanilla aroma (well if you have real vanilla stick you can extract powder from its even better, but I don't !
- •Mix the eggs to the fromage BlancI always add my eggs one by one !
- •Then add the rest sugar, salt and vanilla
- •Finally add the flour !
- •Mix it softly using only the slowest mode of your robot !I know you guys don't Say robot but keeping my french mistake to make @gwcoffey happy
- •And that's pretty much it !
- •Put the preparation in your baking pan ! I just bought a cool one that makes taking it off easy as a piece of cake (sorry for that joke)It's particularly useful for cakes like cheesecake that will always tragically break when turned out
- •That's pretty much it ! You can add fruits for example I added blueberries (just a bit in the mix plus I'll serve with fresh ones too)BTW I MADE AN AWESOME GIF OF ME DROPPING BLUEBERRIES IN THE PAN BUT FORGOT TO SAVE IT 😱😭💔
- •Cook in the oven for about an hour at 160degrees Celsius (I'll let you google what thermostat or Fahrenheit it is !)
- •Then turn off your oven and keep the cake so that it cools down little by little !
- •Apprently it's better after 24h in the fridge so the suspense is gonna kill me !!Tbh I'm waiting cause my diner party is tomorrow I would have eat it right away !!!
- •~24h later~I realize you didn't really live the suspense but it was real !
- •Not bad huh
- •It was very good !!! And it's one of the least heavy I know so you eat even more of it !Shout out to my friend Marion who is the real Instagram Queen and made this beautiful picture !
