Serves: 12
  • 250g crushed plain sweet biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 kg cream cheese, softened
  • 1 3/4 cups (375g) caster sugar

  • 3 tablespoons plain flour

Preparation method

Prep: 30 minutes |Cook: 1 hour
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a 23cm springform pan with removeable base.
2. In a medium bowl, mix biscuit crumbs with melted butter. Press onto base of pan.
3. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate.
4. Mix in sour cream, vanilla essence and flour until smooth - don't over beat. Pour filling over prepared biscuit base.
5. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off and let the cake cool in the oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours. This prevents cracking. Chill until ready to serve.
