RBS VI nations - 3rd day
England 16-20 Ireland
Gutted for England, yet happy for Ireland. At least, both team played to the end and they were both close. Both have demonstrated an average rugby, willing and trying to do well but not enough. This time Ireland won, it could have been England. I wished England to play stronger, faster and more offensive, Wilko not to miss opportunities and making less mistakes, but this is part of building a team I guess. Last Friday, France was not more convincing in its 2nd half against Wales...
Lets cheer up England and Celebrate Ireland with a Lime Cheesecake with Lemon Curd Topping
Makes one 20cm cake.
For the crust:
. 240 gr Speculoos (or Spekulatius) cracker crumbs
. 100 gr unsalted butter, melted, plus additional for greasing a pan later
For the filling:
. 600 gr regular cream-cheese
. 150 gr sugar + 15 gr of Bourbon vanilla sugar
. 2 tbsp cornstarch
. freshly squeezed lime juice
. 2 large eggs
. 30 cl of cooking cream 15%
For the topping:
. Lemon curd
Preheat the oven to 150°C, and position a rack in the middle of the oven. Cut a parchment circle to fit the bottom of the 20 cm springform pan.
Crust : mix together the crushed speculoos and melted butter then press evenly into the bottom of the springform pan. Set aside for now.
Filling : beat the cream cheese with a whisk until creamy, add both sugars, then the cornstarch. Mix in the lime juice. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, add the cream and whisk for approximately a minute.
Brush the sides of the spring form with melted butter. Wrap the inner side of the pan with parchment. Pour the filling into the pan. Transfer carefully to the oven and bake for 60 minutes. Open the oven's door and let the cheesecake cool inside the oven.
Whisk the lemon curd with a fork in a small bowl and pour it over the surface of the cooled cheesecake, tilt from side to side to form a layer.
Cover the springform with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
