This past weekend I did a little, OK maybe more like a lot of baking. A friend of mine (who happens to be a photographer) wanted to take photos of some baked goods and asked if I would mind supplying the baked goods. Now we all know how much I love to bake so of course I had no problem lending a hand. One of the things I baked is the fiancé's favourite...Cheesecake (and in honour of National Cheesecake day, 30 July). Oh and a pre-warning, this recipe is by no means a dieter's friend.
50g muscovado sugar
50g butter, melted
500g full-fat cream cheese
100g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
200ml double cream
100g digestive biscuits
In a mixing bowl, mix together the biscuit crumbs and muscovado sugar. Add in the melted butter and mix well. Place in the fridge and allow to set.
In a large mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese, double cream, icing sugar and vanilla essence.
Mixing it up properly. Make sure to get the bits at the bottom of the bowl.
Spoon the cream mixture over the biscuit base. Smooth the top of the cheesecake with a spoon and chill the in the fridge for at least an hour or until it's set.
