How to make cheesecake with gingerbread.

Cheesecake: put soft butter and icing sugar in a bowl, then rub until fluffy. Add the egg yolks one at a time, vanilla extract and vanilla pudding powder. Then add the cheese in small batches, mixing it all the time. Whisk the egg whites until stiff, then add them at the very end to the cheese mass by gently folding them in.

Put the cheese mixture into a baking tin lined with baking paper. Bake in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius for 40 minutes. After that, allow the cake to cool down.

Gingerbread: put eggs and sugar in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Then, add honey and oil in smaller batches and the tea essence. Finally, add the sifted flour combined with baking soda and gingerbread spice.

Pour the cake batter into a baking tin lined with a baking paper. Bake for an hour in an oven preheated to 180 degrees Celsius. Allow the baked cake to cool down.

Custard and butter cream: take out 200 ml milk from the total of 500 ml, pour it into a glass and add flour, potato flour, pudding and vanilla extract. Mix very well. Pour the remaining milk into a pot, add sugar and bring it to boil. When the milk starts boiling, pour in the pudding from the glass. Bring it to boil, stirring constantly. Once it starts boiling, keep it cooking on the heat for a minute. Cool it down.

Place the soft butter in a bowl and rub until fluffy. Then add the cold custard and lemon juice gradually. Rub until smooth and with no lumps.

Folding the cake: cut the gingerbread into two halves. Cover the first half with half of the cream, on which carefully place the cheesecake, spread the remaining cream on top of it and cover with the gingerbread. Sprinkle the cake with caster sugar on top. Refrigerate the cake for few hours.
