Baked Mascarpone Cheesecake a total winner!

When I first made this baked mascarpone cheesecake I was instantly in love with its creamy sourness. Mascarpone has a delicious balance of sweet and sour that really adds to this recipe and made it a surprising winner.

When I baked this cheesecake and was taking photos I felt it just needed a little colour as my setting was pretty basic. The addition of Summer Hill Pantry Fruit Sparkles certainly gave it a cute look. This would be great for a birthday cake for any age.

Best baked mascarpone cheesecake marriages

If you haven’t cooked with mascarpone before or even tasted it, it is best described as smooth and creamy with a slight tangy taste. It is high in butterfat and works beautifully in desserts, most famously Tiramisu.

Perfect flavour matches with this baked mascarpone cheesecake are a little dash of no-sugar added fruit coulis, double cream, or even a drizzle of melted sugar-free chocolate.  Yummmm! So good!

Mascarpone Substitutes

In this baked mascarpone cheesecake you could easily substitute some créme fraiche, cream cheese, or smooth ricotta. It definitely won’t have the same delicious tang of the mascarpone but it will work out perfectly when baking. Never be afraid of a little bit of swapping in the kitchen. I find some of my best recipes have come from using up leftovers, or substituting what I have vs what I don’t when cooking.

Mascarpone can be found quite easily these days in most supermarkets in either the gourmet cheese area or in the usual dairy aisles.
