this is... a favourite recipe i would like to share


Baked Cheesecake
2 cups plain sweet biscuits crumbed - i use chocolate teddy bear biscuits
1/4 cup melted butter
3 cups soft cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup fresh cream
2 tsp custard powder
dash vanilla - i love that smell!

Base
Combine biscuit crumbs and melted butter, press into a 22cm pie dish and chill. Preheat oven at 150°C.

Method
Put cream cheese, eggs, caster sugar, fresh cream and custard powder into a big bowl. Beat like mad and add the vanilla. The mixture should be creamy and smooth. Spoon into the crumb base and sprinkle a few biscuit crumbs on top. Bake at 150°C. When the cake starts splitting on top it's done. It should be pale gold on top. Use this as a basic cheesecake recipe. You can add fruit but it is simply lovely made in the traditional way. Serve thick slices with good strong coffee!

I would love to ask Strawberry Kisses for her suggestion for our 'This Is...' theme for next week!

Oh lovely - there is nothing better than a really good cheesecake recipe. I like the idea of using the custard powder in it too (had never thought of that before ... it must help set it?).

Great topic this week!
