Nutella Cheesecake Bar


After ate my cookie dough cheesecake bars, my sil fell in love with it, I was quite surprised as she is not a cheesecake person. After that, she will whatsapp me the cheesecake recipes when she spotted one that looks good. This one was sent by her as well and I promised to bake for her mid autumn party.

Recipe adapted with slight modification from The Moonlight Baker and Live Love Pasta

Ingredients: for 8" square cake pan
120g oreo biscuits, crushed
50g unsalted butter, melted
500g cream cheese, at room temperature
2 eggs, at room temperature
90g castor sugar
1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon dairy whipping cream
1 tsp homemade vanilla extract
1/4 cup Nutella

1. Preheat the oven to 170C. Line the cake pan with parchment paper or foil allowing a little overhang and grease the pan. Set aside. (As I am using removable base baking pan so I didn't line the baking paper)
2. Mix the melted butter and oreo biscuit crumbs until thoroughly combined. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove pan to a cooling rack. (I prepared a few hours ahead and chilled in the fridge)
3. Cream sugar and cream cheese in the mixer until smooth. Add vanilla extra and mix until well blended.
4. Add eggs one at a time and cream until smooth.
5. Add 1/4 cup whipping cream and cream until well combined.

6. Pour out 2/3 of the cream cheese mixture and set a side.
7. Add nutella and 1 tbsp of dairy whipping cream to the remaining 1/3 cream cheese mixture in mixer and mix until well combine.
8. Pour the plain cream cheese filling into the prepared biscuit base. 
9. Then pour the nutella cream cheese filling layer on top of the plain cream cheese filling and spread evenly.
10. Bake in the preheated oven at 170C at the center rack of the oven for about 35 mins, or until the center jiggles slightly.
11. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a cooling rack. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours,
12. Cut and serve.

This cheesecake is rich and creamy, with the nutella added, it tasted heavenly, I received a lot of compliments too. I prefer eating it when chilled than room temperature which the cheesecake will be soften. A keeper recipe!
