HOMEMADE MASCARPONE CHEESE!...AND MANGO CHEESECAKE

I have a whole list of stuff you don't get here in India, like blueberries or asparagus or for that matter mascarpone...Sometimes I wish for the really little things like maybe hundreds and thousands...and all that lovely cake decorating and yummy eating stuff that is so readily available abroad! Top of my wishlist is filled chocolates aaahhh..


Anyways you can imagine my happiness when I came across Vera's recipe for homemade mascarpone cheese... and it turned out sooo beautifully


The minute I added the lemon juice to the gently heating cream, you won't believe it-I got a whiff of CHEESECAKE! So that's what I made...no kidding here :)

I had an eye on Abbey's infamous cheesecake , ever since the daring bakers took it up and with mascarpone at hand who could stop me?I took the recipe from Sunita's World which can be found here.The only change I made was the addition of 1/2 cup chopped luscious mangoes, and another half a mango, sliced for the top..., super soft, light, creamy and delicious is all I can say about this divine cheesecake...

Yumm.. This looks great :)
But is mascarpone cheese the same as cream cheese? Because in the recipe I cant find any mascarpone. I too have had my eye on the DB cheesecake for a while, plan to make it soon :)

Lovely cake! I have been thinking of making my own mascarpone too (even though I get it at a neighborhood store, but the prices are outrageous).

If only someone could get us blueberries too :(
