What Ingredients Will You Need For Gordon Ramsay’s Cheesecake In A Jar?

Gather all the ingredients listed below to make Gordon Ramsay’s cheesecake in a jar. 

For base:

  • Almonds- Almonds give a slightly nutty flavor to the base of the cheesecake. 
  • Coconut oil- Coconut oil makes softer crumbs of the base. It’s the best substitute for butter and oil in baking. Also, it adds coconut flavor to the cake. 
  • Coconut sugar or golden caster sugar- Coconut sugar is a better plant-based sweetener for the cake. You can substitute coconut sugar with golden caster sugar. It has more caramel flavors and is best for sponge cakes. 

For topping:

  • Cream cheese- Cream cheese is the major ingredient of this recipe. The cream cheese gives a sweet and cheese-like taste to the cake. It has a soft and creamy texture.  
  • Greek yogurt- Greek yogurt is a thick cream with a tangy flavor. The velvety texture goes well with desserts.
  • Coconut sugar- It is the best plant-based sweetener for the cake. It also gives a mild coconut flavor to the cream.  
  • Lemon juice- Lemon juice gives a mild acidic taste in the cream filling. The acid in the lemon thickens the texture of the cream cheese. 
  • Vanilla extract- Add vanilla extract to give vanilla flavor to the cake. 
  • Frozen blueberries- Use frozen berries for topping. You can use mixed berries for topping on the cake. 
  • Salt- Add salt to balance the excess sweetness or tartness in the cake.

Steps To Make Gordon Ramsay’s Cheesecake In A Jar

1. Prep the base!

In a saucepan over medium heat, toast a handful of almonds for about 3-4 minutes. Then, let them cool slightly. Pour these almonds into a food processor and blend until they’re finely chopped. Now, add coconut oil, sugar and blend again until they combine. 

Divide this mixture into four small jam jars. Press them down to form a firm base. Place these jars into the refrigerator until the base becomes firm. 

2. Make cheesecake filling

In a mixing bowl, add cream cheese, yogurt, a teaspoon of coconut sugar and beat them together using a wooden spoon. Now, add vanilla extract, maple syrup or honey, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt to the bowl. Mix them together to form a smooth cream filling. Stir in half the berries and make sure they don’t break while mixing. 

3. Add filling to the jars

Take out the jars from the fridge and add the cream mixture to the jars. Leave a 2cm gap between the filling and the brim of the jar. Top the filling in each jar with the remaining berries. 

4. Refrigerate the cake and serve

Return these jars to the refrigerator and let them chill for at least an hour to firm up.
