There are three main types of cheesecake ingredients. They are the ones who make the base, the main mixture of the cheesecake and the additional fillings or condiments. Some types of cheesecake, such as baked New York cheesecake, may only require the first two types of cheesecake. It is possible to make two very different cheesecakes using very different cheesecake ingredients, but there is a common theme in using soft cheese as the main ingredient.
Melted chocolate is commonly used to make a chocolate-flavored cheesecake.
The first part of a cheesecake to make is usually the base. Biscuits are usually kneaded and then joined with melted butter to form the base. You can also mix in a little sugar or syrup here. Digestive biscuits are typically used, but crushed biscuits and other hard or dry biscuits can be used to give it a different texture or flavor. Some cheesecakes use a sponge base, which uses traditional sponge ingredients such as flour, eggs, sugar and butter.
A regular cold cheesecake, which does not require freezing, contains a number of common cheesecake ingredients. The main ingredient is soft cheese. It can be a general type of soft cheese, mascarpone, or a branded type. Soft cheese can be mixed with various other cheesecake ingredients to produce a variety of flavors. Other common ingredients used as mixers include zest or juice, melted white chocolate, and heavy cream.
On the other hand, chocolate cheesecakes mix soft cheese with cocoa powder and/or melted milk chocolate. Other ingredients that can be used in a chocolate cheesecake include eggs, heavy cream, powdered sugar, and even cream powder. This depends on the nature of the chocolate cheesecake being made and the recipe being followed.
Baked cheesecake ingredients are slightly different from colder ones. The main difference is the presence of flour and eggs. These are essential to the cooking process. Other cheesecake ingredients used to make baked cheesecakes, such as New York cheesecake, include vanilla extract and sometimes baking powder.
Many types of cheesecakes have additional flavors. There are two main types of condiments: those that go inside the cheesecake and those that are placed on top of the cheesecake. Many baked American cheesecakes tend to have caramel, chocolate, or fruit flavored spirals within the cheesecake mixture, giving it a marbled effect. These cheesecake ingredients are fairly simple mixtures of sugar and fruit flavors or melted chocolate.
English cheesecakes such as Devonshire cheesecake and many others also place fruit slices in the finished cheesecake. The types of fruit that are placed on top of the cheesecake include mango, strawberry, raspberry and small oranges such as clementine and tangerine. They are often combined with fruit syrup of the same flavor and drops of whipped cream. Essentially, there is no limit to the possible cheesecake ingredients that can be placed on top of a cheesecake; it all comes down to taste.
