We are great lovers of cheesecake in our house and as part of the #CapricornChallenge I decided I had to make a cheesecake. In case you are wondering what the #CapricornChallenge is, Ethel the Goat sent me a lovely hamper of goodies including Capricorn Goats Cheese and challenged me to come up with some recipes. I have not gone baa-rmy, you can talk to Ethel the Goat on twitter, she is a very nice goat who helps create Capricorn Goats Cheese. I grabbed the challenge by the horns and created a number of different recipes which I will be sharing with you.
This is my recipe for Baked Pear and Goats Cheese Cheesecake which was a bit of an experiment but has turned out nicely. There was a slight disaster with a leaky cake tin, for a moment I thought all the topping was going to end up on the bottom of the oven. Luckily not much leaked out, but I really must get some new cake tins.
Baked Pear and Goats Cheese Cheesecake
First make the biscuit base.
The base ended up looking like this
It looks a little bit like this at this stage
Finally serve and enjoy.
I was really pleased with how this turned out, it was quite mild and delicious. I would love to try this with a different fruit, I think raspberries would work really well as they would be quite tangy. If you give it a go I would love to know what you think.
Disclosure: I was sent a hamper of ingredients to provide inspiration for the recipes
