I've got a few enquires asking me if I make any lychee flavoured cake. I think it's a good idea as fruit flavoured cakes are always popular. So lychee has always been on my mind when it comes to new flavour. I've been busy with baking so weeks after weeks I've put this aside.
Well, it's been quite a while since my last new cake, lemon curd, was introduced. In fact my free time to try out this lychee cheesecake was this week when the power supply got interrupted many times. Since I couldn't do anything but just wait for the power to return, I could really sit down to think about this cake.
Back to the cake, I want to keep it light & refreshing. So the bottom part will not be the the same rich biscuit & butter crumbs, instead it'll be a layer of almond (pure extract) sponge, the filling will be blended lychee fruit with cream cheese, whereas the topping will be a layer of lychee jelly with lychee fruit.
