Mini Baked Cheese Cupcake

I'm not a great fan of cheesecake though, my big kids love cheesecakes. Having tried some cheese cupcakes and received compliments from them on baked cheese cupcake and the non-bake ones
here and here previously, baked a batch of quick and easy cheese cupcakes for their weekend afternoon snack.

Recipe adapted from : Eugenie Kitchen
My slight adjustments made in blue

Mini Baked Cheese Cupcake 
Yields 12 cupcakes
For crust:
85g Digestive biscuits, crushed into fine crumbs
30g melted butter

For filling:
225g cream cheese, softened [I used light spreadable cream cheese]
133g cup granulated sugar [I used 90g caster sugar] 
½ teaspoon cornstarch
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 eggs

Method :
To make the crust :
Line muffin pan with cupcake liners.
Combine the finely crumbled biscuits and melted butter. Divide the mixture between cupcake liners. Press down firmly with the back of a teaspoon to make crust.

To make cream cheese filling :
With a electric mixer, beat the softened cream cheese on a low speed until smooth. Add sugar, cornstarch, vanilla extract, and lemon juice. Cornstarch is added to prevent cracking on top and with lemon juice cheesecake tastes better. Continue to beat until creamy. Beat in the eggs one at a time until smooth with no lumps.

To bake the cheese cupcake:
Preheat oven to 180°C.
The temperature of the oven may vary, do adjust the temperature and timing to suit your oven.

Use an ice cream scoop or spoon to spoon the batter into the cupcake liners, filling each one almost to the top and bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly risen.

Remove the muffin pan, place on wire rack and let cool in the pan. Cheesecakes will continue to be baked in the pan. Once completely cooled, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or chill overnight before serving.

I'm sure to serve these mini cheese cupcakes with whipped cream and add a dollop of decadent Nutella definitely yummy-licious ! Enjoy and have a great weekend ^-^!
