Lemon cheesecake with blueberry jam

Lemon cheesecake with blueberry jamI have a younger brother (and a sister, but now I will be talking about my brother). He is almost 17 and is a chatty person only when he feels like it. Even though we don’t see each other a lot, our conversations are brief and go normally like this: me: “How’s it going?”, him, barely looking away from his Play Station game, with a super deep voice that I don’t know where it came from, because yesterday he was still my little brother: “Good.”. And that’s it. Well, yesterday he was in his chatty mode and I got a comment from him saying: “I asked you already so many times, to make that cheescake again, but you never do.” I had no idea of which cheesecake he was talking about and for the record, he never asked me for it, believe me I would know if he would. So of course I had to get to the bottom of it and I found out that he was talking about a cheesecake I made last Christmas. I didn’t even know he liked it, well maybe him taking a second piece is his way of saying that. Anyway, I rarely say no to baking, so I made his wish come true.
This is a lemon cheesecake with a flaky pie crust at the bottom and blueberry jam topping.

Lemon cheesecakeImam mlajšega brata (in sestro, ampak zdaj bom govorila o bratu). Star je skoraj 17 let in ni ravno klepetave sorte, le takrat ko je od volje. Čeprav se ne vidiva pogosto, so najini pogovori ponavadi kratki in potekajo nekako tako: jaz: “Kako gre?”, on s težavo odvrne pogled s svoje Play Station igrice in mi z globokim glasom, ki ne vem od kod prihaja, saj je bil še včeraj moj mali bratec, odgovori: “Dobro!”. In to je to. No včeraj je bil klepetavo razpoložen in kar naenkrat mi očitujoče reče: “Tolikokrat sem te že prosil, pa mi še vedno nisi naredila tiste cheesecake.” Amm, pojma nisem imela o čem govori in v katerih sanjah me je to prosil, če bi me, bi že vedela. No, ugotovila sem, da je bilo govora o cheesecake, ki sem jo naredila prejšnji Božič, za katero mi sploh ni omenil, da mu je všeč, morda je to, da je vzel še en kos njegov način, da mi to pove. Kakorkoli, zelo redko rečem ne priložnosti za peko, zato sem mu željo uresničila. 
To je limonin cheesecake (sirova torta) z rahlo podlago iz testa za pite in borovničevim premazom. 

Ingredients flaky pie crust

INGREDIENTS for the FLAKY PIE CRUST | SESTAVINE za RAHLO TESTO ZA PITE:

  • 180 g all purpose flour / večnamenske moke
  • 120 g unsalted butter / masla
  • 50 g yogurt / jogurta
  • Pinch of salt / ščepec soli

step1 step2 step3

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the butter and mix with dry ingredients in a bowl. With a food processor or using your fingers rub the butter into the flour until it resembles bread crumbs.

Pečico segrejemo na 180°C. Narežemo maslo in ga zmešamo s suhimi sestavinami. Z multipraktikom ali s prsti drobimo maslo na manjše koščke, dokler zmes ne postane zrnata. 

step4 step5 step6

Add the yogurt and mix until you form a smooth dough. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 min. In the mean time line a 23 cm springform pan with baking paper and clean your kitchen.
Roll out the dough and cover the bottom of the pan. Fill the top with baking beans (or other pie weights) and bake the crust for 20 min. step7

Dodamo jogurt in zmešamo, da dobimo gladko testo. Testo damo v hladilnik za 30 min. Med tem časom obložimo okrogel pekač za torte, premera 23 cm, s papirjem za peko in pospravimo nered v kuhinji.
Testo razvaljamo in z njim obložimo dno pekača. Testo obtežimo in pečemo 20 min.

step12 step13 step14

Spread the blueberry jam over the baked pie crust. Pour the cheesecake filling over the crust and bake for 30-40 min on 180°C, or until golden on top. When the cheesecake is done leave it in the oven (turn off the oven) to cool.

Pečeno testo premažemo z borovničevo marmelado. Maso za sirno torto vlijemo v model in torto pečemo 30-40 min na 180°C, dokler se ne po vrhu zlato rjavo zapeče. Ko je torta pečena, jo pustimo v ugasnjeni pečici, da se ohladi.
step15 step16
When the cheesecake cools, spread the blueberry jam on top, take the cheesecake out of the springform pan, cut a piece and eat it!

Enjoy  the goodies!

Ko je torta ohlajena, jo po vrhu premažemo z borovničevo marmelado, vzamemo ven iz modela, si odrežemo kos in ga pojemo!

Uživajte v dobrotah!
