Recipe for Mango Cheesecake

Creamy, rich and tangy, this baked cheesecake is easy to make and will impress your friends and family. The recipe calls for just three packages of cream cheese, making it more budget-friendly than recipes that call for five. The flavors of mango and Key lime subtly hint of the tropics.

In the United States, homemade cheesecake is usually made with commercially produced cream cheese, although an even more delicious cheesecake can be crafted with homemade cream cheese. In Italy and Peru, cheesecake is often made with ricotta cheese.

A springform pan submerged in a water bath (to evenly distribute oven heat) produces a beautiful cake. Serve mango cheesecake with a garnish of fresh raspberries or mango slices. Enjoy!

Tips for Perfect Cheesecake:

  • To prevent cheesecake from cracking: avoid overbeating the cream cheese filling, especially after adding eggs.
  • After about an hour of baking, when the cheesecake's center is only slightly jiggly, turn off the oven and leave the door closed until cheesecake has cooled to room temperature.
  • Refrigerate cooled cheesecake overnight.
  • Since mangoes vary in sweetness, adjust sugar to taste.
  • For lower fat cheesecake: Substitute Neufchatel for cream cheese.
  • Substitute 1/3 cup sour cream and 1/3 cup milk for the yogurt or Kefir.
  • For gluten-free cheesecake: use gluten-free vanilla cookies crumbs for crust. Substitute superfine sweet white rice flour for the unbleached flour.
  • Cheesecake freezes well. Be sure to wrap it well in foil and plastic wrap or a large freezer bag.
  • Drizzle Exotic Wild Berry Sauce over cheesecake to switch things up.

  • 1/2-1 cup white sugar, or to taste
