Q&A on Cheesecake Recipe with Golden Chocolate Topping

Q: Can I use another type of cookie for the base?
A: Absolutely. Although graham crackers are traditional for a cheesecake base, you can experiment with other types of biscuits such as Digestive cookies, speculoos or even Oreos for a different twist.

Q: Is it possible to make this recipe without a springform pan?
A: A springform pan is ideal for cheesecakes because it makes unmolding easier without damaging the cake. However, if you don't have one, you can use a regular cake pan lined with parchment paper, leaving enough paper on the sides so you can lift the cake once cooled.

Q: How do you prevent cheesecake from cracking?
A: Cracks can be avoided by avoiding overbeating the eggs (which incorporates air into the batter), using a double boiler to bake the cheesecake, and allowing the cake to cool slowly in the oven off after cooking.

Q: Can we replace the sugar with another type of sweetener?
A: Yes, sugar can be replaced with other sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup or coconut sugar. Keep in mind that this may slightly change the texture and taste of the cake.

Q: Is 35% cream essential for the topping?
A: 35% cream is used for its fat content which helps create a smooth and creamy topping. You could use cream with a similar fat percentage, but using milk or low-fat cream might not give the same result.

Q: Can flavorings be added to the golden chocolate topping?
A: Absolutely. Don't hesitate to incorporate extracts such as almond, orange or even a little liqueur to enrich the taste of the topping.

Q: What should I do if my golden white chocolate doesn't melt properly?
A: Make sure to heat the cream before adding the chocolate. If the chocolate does not melt well, place the mixture over a double boiler over very low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate is completely melted. Be careful not to overheat to prevent the chocolate from separating.

Q: Can I make this cake in advance?
A: Yes, cheesecake is a great make-ahead dessert. It can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. For best results, add topping and decorations like raspberries just before serving.

Q: How do you store leftover cheesecake?
A: Store leftover cheesecake, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze it, without the topping, tightly wrapped in plastic wrap and foil, for up to 2 months.
