This weekend was my birthday, so I decided to bake myself a lovely cheesecake with various berry toppings. The cake as a hit but I have some issues I would like address and I hope you can give me your suggestions to improve on my recipe.
The texture was great. It crack a bit but I wasn't worried about that. However it tasted to me a bit sour. My question how do I cut the sour taste on fresh berries.
Here is what I put:
4 - 8oz fat free cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon (tspn) vanilla
1/2 tspn salt
raspberry, blueberry, blackberry
1 cup of raspberry perserved
I heated the perserved until it was slightly liquidfied (barely warm) to spread on top fo the cheesecake and then pour all over the yummy fruits.
My first bite was explosive with soured taste due to what I believe to be the fruits. I was wondering, should I have cooked the fruits with sugar and then pour over the cake but then I would have a jam consistency and not a fruit topping as I wanted.
What are your thought to my ingredients. Also, I wanted that cream texture but should I have reduced the sour cream?
Thank you for your input.
