“This is a Caribbean twist on a classic dessert. Use firm, ripe mangoes, not mushy or half ripe ones. This is a great recipe to try because it's quick and simple to prepare. I used a ready made crust because it makes prep time shorter and really a graham cracker crust is perfect for cheesecakes.” - by TNARINESINGH
Original recipe yields 1 - 8 inch cheesecake
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a medium bowl, mix 3/4 cup of sugar into the cream cheese. Mix in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Pour this batter into the graham cracker crust, and smooth over the top.
- Bake in preheated oven until the edges have puffed up but the middle still jiggles, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool for 30 minutes, then refrigerate until cold, about 3 hours.
- While the cheesecake is baking, pour 1 cup of the mango nectar and 1/3 cup of sugar into a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, dissolving the sugar. Dissolve the cornstarch in the remaining 1/4 cup of nectar, and stir into the boiling saucepan until thickened and clear, about 30 seconds. Place diced mango into a heatproof bowl, and toss with the thickened sauce. Allow to cool to room temperature, then pour over the cheesecake. Serve cold.

"Looking at the reviews beforehand I suppose would have been wise, but you shouldn't have to consult reviews in a published recipe, in my opinion, to avert disaster. The crust, okay, so you can't go w..." See morerong if you buy one. I chose to make my own - just as easy, probably cheaper, and tastes better and fresher: 1-1/4 c. graham cracker crumbs, 5 T. melted butter, 2 T. sugar - in a 9" springform pan. The cheesecake filling is standard - can't go wrong there either. But the topping... what a watery mess. Either reduce the nectar, probably by half, or increase the cornstarch, probably by double. If you don't you'll end up having to do what I did and have to struggle to fix this after the fact. Also, I don't undertstand the reason for tossing the boiling hot juice with the fresh mango - -unless you're trying to cook the mango (not). Once done, this is very good as well as pretty - four stars for sure. On its own, prepared as the recipe directs? - a store bought crust with a basic cheesecake filling topped with chopped mangoes suspended in juice. And, given what you'd end up with, three stars is generous, two stars is more accurate, but I don't want to discourage anyone from trying this recipe with some important modifications."
"Can I give this one another star? It really is an awesome and easy cheesecake. The mango topping is to die for and so easy to make! Don't be afraid to work with fresh mangoes even if you're not accust..." See moreomed to them. The fresh ones really beat canned ones anyday. I usually buy desserts but saw this recipe and decided to try it. It was easy and got rave reviews from my family and friends. Now I have to make mango cheesecake at least once a month or I start hearing alot of complaining about how I never make mango cheesecake anymore! Thanks TNARINESINGH. You rock!"
