Mango Cheesecake (recipe not included)

It has been a blastingly hot weekend... and standing in front of an oven baking was really out of the question *sweats*. I have been taking an average of 2 to 3 showers a day and just walking out of the air conditioned room to the kitchen to get a cup of iced tea is a hot affair. But I cannot let this weekend go by without doing something ... else I will have absolutely nothing to post here today.

I have been trying to enroll for a cheesecake class with my friend Susan at Melinda Apple Bakings but somehow the timing just wasn't right. Anyway, I have been looking at recipes from a cookbook plus that posted by several bloggers. Some are much harder to do than others and not being overly ambitions, I chose a highly simplistic recipe and added some fruits into the cheesecake to give it a little bit of added flavor.

I have made no bake cheesecakes in the past (oreo cheesecake and peach cheesecake) but i have yet to find one that I am totally happy with. I have found another one and this time, the filling was quite okay but I think the ingredients resulted in a tad too much base. I have to reduce the quantity of biscuits and butter for the base. I didn't make that big a cake and as I did this on Sunday night, by the time it was Tuesday, there was not much cake left. Could only bring 2 pieces to pass to Susan to test it out for me. I will have to wait for her verdict before I try to do it again. The other test bunnies had only this to say "Why is your base so thick ah??" Sigh.... back to the drawing board..

Will post the recipe only when I get it right :). So, watch this space.
