Daves Mums Cheese Cake

20160108 Cheesecake to Daves Mums recipie.jpg

This is the first post for 2016 so I had to make it something amazing. And cake is the perfect way to start the year. I made this a few weeks ago and the oven was a little hot so it was a bit brown in spots. Posh cooks call this ‘caramalised’ which is really just saying you stuffed up and burnt it. But with this cheese cake burning it a bit is a good thing as it still tastes fantastic and it gives you the perfect excuse to make it again. Jo made this one and lowered the temp a bit. As you can see it is perfect, at least it was before I stuck my finger in it in my impatience to get stuck in to the yummyness (not sure if that is a word).

The Recipe is from Daves Mum and is the best, 100 ICU nurses can’t be wrong.

Biscuit crust

  • 1 pack of smashed Granita biscuits
  • 3/4 cup of sugar

  • Cream the cheese until smooth
  • Blend in eggs, 2/3 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla
