Can you use mascarpone in a cheesecake?
Absolutely! It's the perfect replacement for soft cream cheese, it's richer, denser, and a lot creamier, which makes it ideal for a silky cheesecake recipe.
I have made cheesecake before, but used soft cheese instead of mascarpone. And while that was delicious too, l find that mascarpone can never be beaten.
It's entirely up to you, you could also use half mascarpone, half soft cheese. Just make sure it stays in the fridge overnight, so that it sets beautifully.
How to make cheesecake with mascarpone
Like any good old cheesecake, the base is usually made of crushed biscuits (crackers) mixed with butter and any vanilla or rum essence you prefer. Once the biscuit base has settled in the fridge, make the mascarpone filling.
The first layer is the milk chocolate and mascarpone one. The chocoalte is melted, then the mascarpone is added to make a silky cream. For the second layer, I opted for double cream. It's more like a glaze, rather than filling in itself, then the third chocolate, the white one, is just sprinkled over to give it the final touch.
Oh, ONE TIP HERE, having a cake tin with a loose base or detachable sides helps a lot, the cake will come out so much easier. I did not use perchament paper to cover the sides of my tin, since it's a non-stick one, but feel free to use some if needed.
Now, if you excuse me, l'm going for another slice of cake, l deserve it, damn right l do! For more cheesecake heaven, how about some delighfully silky Coconut Cheesecake?
