My friend Lauren and I came up with the idea for this while watching a show about baby tigers on animal planet. One of them had an orange coat and no black on him, and they said he was "marmalade". We decided that a marmalade tiger should be the name of a food. This is what we came up with. Its a home baked cheesecake with a layer of vanilla and a layer blended with orange marmalade. Yum! (For a more striped look, swirling the two colors together might be fun to try too!)
- 1 1⁄2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine, melted
- 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄3 cup unsifted flour
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 (8 ounce) jar orange marmalade
- 3 -5 drops red food coloring (optional)
- 3 -5 drops yellow food coloring (optional)
- Preheat oven to 350°F
- Combine crumbs and margarine; press firmly on bottom of 9" springform pan.
- In large mixer bowl, beat cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk until smooth. Add eggs, flour, and vanilla; mix well.
- Divide batter in half. Add marmalade to ½ of batter, and add red and yellow food color for that tiger orange look (if you like); mix well. Pour vanilla batter into prepared pan. Top evenly with orange batter.
- Bake 50 - 55 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool. Chill thoroughly; refrigerate leftovers.
