RECIPE: Mango Cheesecake Slice

16 October 2018

Yay, mango season is here! This mango cheesecake slice is simple to make and perfect to share.

Serves: 8
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cooking Time: 45 mins

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 Calypso® Mangoes
  • 2 x 200g packets Lattice biscuits
  • 375g cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 395g can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 250g sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 250g mascarpone


METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C fan forced. Grease and line a 22cm (base) square cake pan with baking paper, allowing a 3cm overhang on all sides.
  2. Arrange 16 biscuits, glaze side down, over the base of the cake pan, cutting to fit so the base is covered. 
  3. Peel and cut the fruit from 1 mango. Process the mango until smooth (you should have ¾ cup of puree). Pour the puree into a jug, wash and dry the food processor.
  4. Combine the cream cheese and sugar in the processor. Process until smooth. Add the sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks and sour cream, pulse until just combined. Add 3/4 cup mango puree, pulse to combine. Pour over the base. Arrange more biscuits, glazed side up, over the top. Bake for 40-45 minutes until set. Set aside to cool. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight if time permits.
  5. Lift the slice onto a board or serving platter. Fold the vanilla through the mascarpone. Gently whisk with a balloon whisk to thicken if necessary. Spread over the biscuits. Cut the cheeks from the remaining mangoes. Using a large spoon remove the mango fruit from the cheeks and thinly slice. Arrange over the mascarpone. Cut into squares to serve.

 

For irresistible Calypso® Mangoes every time, follow these four selection and storage tips:

  • Summer glow - Look for a Calypso® Mango that has a sun-kissed blush to the skin.
  • The beak test - Lightly press the “beak” (the pointy end, not the stem end) and if the flesh gives slightly it’s ripe.
  • Bowl is best - Calypso® Mangoes are best kept in a fruit bowl out of direct sunlight and away from heat.
  • Longer lasting - Calypso® Mangoes naturally last longer than other mango varieties but avoid putting them in the fruit bowl with bananas as this accelerates ripening. Bananas release ethylene as they ripen, which speeds up the ripening of many other fruits too.
