Mango Cheesecake










Jane's corner

He was nowhere to be met with; every search for him was equally unsuccessful in morning lounges or evening assemblies; neither at  the Upper nor Lower Rooms, at dressed or undressed balls,  was he perceivable; nor among the walkers, the horsemen, or the curricle-drivers of the morning. His name was not  in the pump-room book, and curiosity could do no more.  He must be gone from Bath.  Yet he had not mentioned that  his stay would be so short! This sort of mysteriousness,  which is always so becoming in a hero, threw a fresh grace in Catherine's imagination around his person and manners, and increased her anxiety to know more of him.

Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen ( 1818)

  1. Mango is one of my favourite fruits and who can resist a cheesecake, as ever you have presented it beautifully with the orchid flowers in the back ground. Meanwhile I'm still thinking what M to make for this months Alpha bakes ;)

  5. Congratulation with your award! And I think you deserve this because your blog is really very good!

    I was trying to think of something that starts with M too to cook but couldn't think of anything. Your Mango cheesecake is beautiful! Too bad the mango season had ended here in Australia.

    1. Thank you so much Zoe for your encouraging words. I'll be looking forward for your bakes for the challenge. Actually I just bought those imported mangoes, since we don't grow them here in France. How nice that would be to have fresh mangoes as in Australia. But most exotic fruits over here are imported. But I prefer use fresh mangoes than canned mangoes though.

  44. That is an irresistibly delicious cake!! How I wish it was an eggless no bake version :D

    Made a mango cheesecake yesterday - eggless, no bake but didn't use gelatine as required by the recipe. So the cake is more like a thick custard :( Any tips on that would be welcome!
