If you notice this picture has the date stamp in 2006. Yups, I did take this picture in 2006 with my old digital camera UMAX Powercam Z432 and I posted the recipe at http://evimeinar.multiply.com/recipes/item/183 before.
This recipe was modified from a cookbook Making It Easy by Foodnetwork Kitchen. The original recipe has a name “Little Cheesecakes with Strawberry Sauce”. I didn’t have any fresh strawberry nor strawberry jams at that time, so I modified this recipe by added hazelnut chocolate.
500 gr cheese cream
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tsp grated orange zest
2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup sugar
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 1/4 oreo baking crumbs
hazelnut chocolate, such as Nutella
Preheat the oven to 325 F
Combine all crust ingredients. Place paper baking cups into muffin pan. Divide mixture evenly among 12 muffin cups, then press it evenly over the bottoms amd about two-third of the way up the sides. Bake just until the crust are set, about 8 minutes.
Combine all filling ingredients until smooth. Divide the filling evenly among the muffin cups and bake until the rims are slightly puffed and the centers are almost set, about 30 minutes.
Spread chocolate hazelnut over the cupcake immediately while the cupcakes are still hot/lukewarm. Cool down at room temperature then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
