Microwaved NY-style Cheesecake

Microwaved NY-style Cheesecake

You can make this small NY cheesecake in a silicone steamer.

Ingredients: 12 cm round cake mold

Cream cheese
120 g
50 g
Plain yogurt
80 g
1 medium
Vanilla essence
2 drops
Cake flour
15 g
Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
Heavy cream
80 g
Cake Base:
30 g
15 g


1. Put the margarine in a heat resistant container, and microwave for 30 seconds at 1000 W to melt.
2. Put the biscuits in a thick resealable plastic bag, pound them with a rolling pin, add the melted butter from Step 1, and mix.
3. Place the mixture from Step 2 into a silicone cake mold (or a silicone case), and press it hard to make the cake base.
4. Put the cream cheese in a heat resistant bowl, cover with cling film, and microwave for 50 seconds at 1000 W to soften. Add the sugar, and mix well.
5. Mix together until it turns whitish and smooth. Add the yogurt in a few batches, and mix well.
6. Add the beaten egg a little at a time, and mix. Add the vanilla essence.
7. Sift in the cake flour, and mix together. Add the lemon juice and heavy cream, and mix well.
8. Pour the batter into the cake mold, straining through a sieve. Cover with cling film, or use a microwavable lid, and microwave for 8 minutes at 500 W.
9. Take the cake out of the microwave, and let it cool covered. (I opened the lid to take a photograph.)
10. Chill in the fridge, and it's done!
11. If you make this in a regular-sized silicone cake mold, the cake will be flatter. But it's easy to eat if you cut the cake into sticks.

Story Behind this Recipe

I adjusted the amounts of the NY cheese cake recipe for a bread maker to be able to make it using a small tub of yogurt (80 g).
The cake got overbaked when I made it in my bread making machine, so I tried it in a microwave.
