Orange Cheesecake



I have a secret….do you wanna know what is it?

Well……..the secret is…….I DO NOT like cheesecakes…..there it is…’s all out in the open.

So after that little revelation you are probably wondering why…..why…..why am I sharing an ORANGE CHEESECAKE recipe?

The reason for this is my best friend. ……the biggest cheesecake lover I ever met.

Few weeks ago was her birthday and her only wish was for me to make her a CHEESECAKE…..fruity cheesecake to be exact.

Since I never made a cheesecake before I wanted to make sure that whatever recipe I use would be A+.

I turned to one of my favorite cookbooks called Book Of Classic Desserts by Robert Rose.

I made many desserts using recipes from this book and few of them didn’t turn out…..few of them had incomplete ingredients lists, but majority of dessert recipes were a success.



So I took a chance…….made the Orange Cheesecake following the recipe and the result…..apparently I managed to make the best cheesecake my best friend and her family ever ate.



  • 11/2 cups Vanilla Wafer Crumbs
  • 6 Tbsp Butter (softened)
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Orange Rind


  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Orange Rind
  • 2 lbs Cream Cheese
  • 6 Eggs
  • 3/4 cup Orange Juice Concentrate
  • Orange Segments (optional)
  • Apple Jelly (optional)

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease 10″ springform cake pan.
Make the Crust:
In a bowl mix together vanilla wafer crumbs, butter, sugar and orange rind. Pat onto bottom of pan. Chill

Make the Filling:

STEP 1: In a food processor blend sugar with orange rind. Add cream cheese little bit at a time. Beat until smooth.

STEP 2: Beat in eggs one at the time. Mix in orange juice concentrate. Pour into chilled crust.

STEP 3: Bake 1 hour and 15 minutes or until slightly loose in the center. Cool at room temperature on wire rack.

STEP 4: Chill. Decorate with orange segments and glaze with melted apple jelly before serving.

My cheesecake cracked a bit on top, but I covered it with orange segments.

    I don't like a heavy cheesecake, but this one looks like I need to try it! The orange flavor with the cream cheese would be wonderful. Thanks.

  2. Ms Bibi says:

    Melynda, it's not heavy at all. I was surprised how fluffy and creamy it really was.

  3. Sydney says:

    That looks amazing! I made my first cheesecake {cherry} on Valentines day and it is our official new favorite dessert! I'll have to try this one out. :)

  4. Jocelyn says:

    That does look and sound delicious…but then again I ♥ cheesecake:-)

    Baked cheesecake isn't something you'll find easily in England and even then it's only a very recent addition to some menus! So, it's not something I've ever tried (but I do love normal, non-baked cheesecake!). This recipe looks and sounds great though, and I'm on a bit of an orange kick lately so that works out nicely :)Thanks for sharing it! I'll definitely give it a try!I'm also taking part in the Hearth & Soul hop and that's how I found your blog.
