INGREDIENTS

  • 100 g digestive biscuits, or cookies, crushed into fine crumbs

METHOD

1. In a mixing bowl, mix together the biscuit crumbs and Demerara sugar. Add in the melted butter and mix well.

2. Spoon the biscuit mixture into a 20cm spring-form cake tin lined with silicon paper or baking parchment. Use a metal spoon to press the biscuit crumbs down firmly and evenly. Chill in the refrigerator until set.

4. Fold in the double cream, mixing well.

5. Spoon the cream mixture over the chilled biscuit base, making sure that there are no air bubbles. Smooth the top of the cheesecake with a palette knife or metal spoon.

6. Chill the cheesecake in the refrigerator for 1 hour until set.

7. To serve, remove from the cake tin and cut into slices.
