This cheesecake is very rich and extremely good - I don't recommend you make it unless there's plenty of people to share it with and don't even think about a little cream or ice cream on the side. May in fact induce hallucinations if consumed in sufficient quantity.
125gms crushed wholemeal biscuits
60gms melted butter
750gms cream cheese
Splash of vanilla
1 ¼ cups of brown sugar
3 beaten eggs
2 tbs flour
I cup of finely chopped pecans
½ cup of brown sugar
60gms of butter
Preheat oven to 190-200oC
Grease springform tin.
Mix biscuits and butter, press into tin and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Combine cream cheese, vanilla, brown sugar, eggs, flour and pecans, pour over base and bake for 50 minutes, reduce heat in oven slightly after you put the cake in. It's cooked whent he centre is still a little wobbly. Let cake cool in oven after cooking with door ajar.
Combine topping ingredients over low heat until thick then pour over cooled cake.
Decorate with praline (which is crushed up hard set toffee with ground pecan mixed through) and whole pecans.
