Aunty Helen’s Cheese Cake

Today we had a bit of free time, my parents took care of Rachel for the day.

I spent the day doing PHP coding for a project at work, and during a break we decided to make a cheesecake.

This time we had a recipe to follow, but were missing a couple (optional) ingredients.

This is the end result: my mummy’s cheesecake recipe.

Looks a bit like a pizza from the top. Here’s how a slice of cheese cake looks after it has set (also after I adjusted white balance):

Recipe is simple:

  1. Crush a cup of biscuits (digestive or Marie variety) and mix with half a pack of butter.
  2. Line the biscuits in a pan and chill in freezer for ten minutes.
  3. Mix a packet of cream cheese with half a cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of milk, juice from 1/2 a lemon and a bit of vanilla essense.
  4. Mix till it’s creamy, non-lumpy and smooth.
  5. Prepare about 1/2 cup of gelatin liquid and add to the creamy mixture.
  6. Remove the biscuit base from the freezer, pour in the cream cheese mixture and place in fridge to set for a few hours.
  7. Sprinkle any remaining biscuit crumbs on top for decoration.
