Cinnamon Flavored Chai Latte Cheesecake

Cinnamon Flavored Chai Latte Cheesecake

This is a rich, spicy, melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake coated with a white chocolate sauce.
If you use normal black tea leaves, it turns into a royal milk tea flavour.

Ingredients: 15 cm round cake tin

Cream cheese
250 g
Butter (optional, but do not use margarine)
30 g
60 ~ 70 g
Sour cream (or heavy cream, mascarpone, strained yogurt)
1 pack (90 ~ 100 g)
Egg yolk
Cornstarch (or Cake flour)
1 tablespoon
Soy milk or milk
50 ml
Chai tea leaves (see Helpful Hints)
1 tablespoon
Ginger biscuits
100 g
Melted butter
50 g
White chocolate sauce
☆ White chocolate
45 ~ 50 g
☆ Soy milk or milk
1.5 ~ 2 tablespoons
Cinnamon powder
a small amount


1. Cover the base of the tin with aluminum foil to ensure no water seeps in. Break the biscuits into small pieces and mix with butter. Then pack on the bottom of a mold.
2. Leave all ingredients at room temperature to soften. Grind the tea leaves as fine as possible in a blender or mortar.
3. Place all ingredients in the listed order into a bowl and mix well each time. Add the ground tea leaves, as is, and mix into the batter.
4. Pour Step 3 into the tin with the biscuit base. Place in a baking tray half filled with boiling water. Steam-bake in oven preheated to 160°C for 45 ~ 50 minutes.
5. Turn off the oven and leave the cake for about 20 minutes to prevent shrinking. Insert a wooden skewer to check if it is finished. If it comes out clean, then it's done.
6. Put ☆ ingredients in another bowl and put this on top of the oven to melt in residual heat. Or add the chocolate to a cup of hot milk tea.
7. Add cinnamon power and mix well. Cool down to body temperature. Remove the cake from the tin and pour the chocolate sauce on top.
8. Chill in the fridge for more than a night. As you chill longer, it turns into a delicious and dense cake. The best time to eat will be after 2 days. You can also freeze this cake.

Story Behind this Recipe

I baked a cheesecake, which goes well with warm milk tea in the winter.
The milky chai taste and the butter melts in your mouth. The addition of white chocolate is sublime.
