Mum's Best Baked Cheesecake

Mum's Best Baked Cheesecake
Number of People: 8

This is one of our all time favourite family recipes! This is my mumís best ever cheesecake recipe which was given to her by our old neighbour, Mary. We were neighbours when I was a little lass, and my mum has been raving about this recipe since way back when. This is simple, scrumptious, freezer friendly and impossible to stuff up. Oh, and itís also impossible to resist!

Ingredients:
170g plain biscuits (I like to use Granita)
50g butter
100g raw sugar
2 eggs
400g cream cheese
200g pure (single) cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
 
FOR THE TOPPING
 
200g sour cream
2 teaspoons caster sugar

Preparation:
1. Lightly grease a 20cm springform tin.

2. Melt butter for 1 minute at 80C on speed 3. Check butter is completely melted. Add biscuits to  *: and crush for 5 seconds on speed 9. The mixture should have the texture of damp sand. If necessary, blitz for another 5 seconds. Tip the mixture into the springform tin.  Press the biscuit butter mixture into the base of the tin. Use your hands or a spoon to do this. Place in the fridge for at least 10 minutes to chill.

3. Preheat oven to 170C / 150C fan-forced.

4.Wash and dry bowl. Mill sugar for 10 seconds   on speed 9. Add cream cheese, cream, vanilla and eggs and mix for 30 seconds   on speed 4. Scrape down lid and sides of bowl. If necessary, mix again for another 5-10 seconds. Pour cream cheese mixture over base.

5. Place springform tin on a baking tray, place in oven and check after 30 minutes. The cheesecake is ready when it looks set in the center with a slight wobble. It needs about 35 minutes in my oven, but needs even longer in my mumís so it depends on the oven.
 
6. Allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven for about 10 minutes. Mix the sour cream and sugar together and spread over the cheesecake. Return to the oven for another 5 minutes.

7.Allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven with the oven door slightly ajar. When the cheesecake is completely cool, put it in the fridge overnight.
 
Preparation Time: 5 minutes   Cooking Time: 30-40 minutes + cooling

Tips/Hints:

For best results, make sure that all the dairy ingredients (cream, sour cream and cream cheese) are at room temperature. More great photos on the blog http://www.theannoyedthyroid.com/2013/12/10/thermomix-best-baked-cheesecake/

Lovely recipe. Not an unusual topping in the US judy. Often done with cheesecake the. pitted cherries on top. Cuts the sweetness a bit.

This looks delicious. Just in time for Christmas and New Year.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yes, it is lovely ladies and perfect for the holiday season. Just made another one tonight. Just like Gert said would be great served with cherries on the top, or some mango or berry coulis on the side! Super yum!
