Cheesecake is something a beginner baker can do. There are millions of recipes out there but this is how I do it – minimal ingredients with no gelatine, no fuss. Perfect for the vegetarian that eats dairy.
Biscuits of your choice (I used a packet of Oreos with the frosting scraped out), crumbs
1 tbs butter (melted)
Combine these two ingredients, and pack down into a springform tin. Chill.
500g cream cheese (softened)
300mL double thick cream
250g white chocolate (melted)
Combine all ingredients. Plop ungracefully onto base. Chill again. Note: because I used Oreos I also mixed the frosting from the cookies into the cheesecake. No waste.
Topping can be whatever you want (I used a block of fair trade milk chocolate, a Reeses peanut butter cup, wafer sticks, Flakes, Timeouts, etc). You can also top with berries.
