Magic Cheesecake

Magic Cheesecake 
This is a deliciously simple cheese cake that I have been making for years that your family will really love.  Its as simple as blitzing a few ingredients together and pouring them into a pie dish.  Seriously.

It magically bakes into a delicious dessert that is a LOT less trouble than making a regular cheese cake.  I think the original recipe came from a box of baking mix but I make my own baking mix these days and just use that.  You can find that recipe here.   It, too, is very easy to make.  I always have a plastic container of it in my cupboard.  It comes in handy for all sorts.

Once you blend everything and pour it into the pie dish, you simply bake it and then presto chango you end up with a delicious cheesecake that went together in a flash and tastes fabulous!

I like to make a sour cream topping for it.  This not only tastes nice, but helps to hide the inevitable crack which appears in the center of the cheesecake.  (The sign of a great cheese cake I might add!)

I like to serve it with a simple fruit topping which I create by mixing together some fresh fruit and jam and heating it gently together until the fruit softens.  This day I used blueberries, but fresh raspberries or strawberries and jam also work very well.  About 1 cup of fruit with several spoonfuls of jam and a tiny bit of water does the trick.   Altogether this is quite, quite delicious!  And a real doddle to make!

This is as simple as measuring everything into a blender or food processer and blitzing.  Pour into the pan and then bake.  It separates magically into a sorta crust and cheesecake filling. Your family will love this.  Its delicious.  I make a tasty topping by cooking some fresh blueberries with a couple of dessertspoons of blueberry jam and 1 TBS water until the berries start to pop.  It is fabulous.

Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4.  Butter a 9 inch pie tin really well.  Set aside.
Place the milk, vanilla eggs, sugar and baking mix into a blender.  Beat on high speed for about 15 seconds.  Cut up the cream cheese and drop it in.  Blend for about 2 minutes longer on a high speed.  Pour into the prepared pie dish.

 Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until the center is set.  Cool completely.
Mix together the topping ingredients until smooth.  Spread on the center of the cheesecake.  Chill to set.  Serve cut into wedges with pie filling or your favorite fruit topping.
