My cooking days are over for awhile.........
no more birthdays till May in our household
Miss 10 requested a baked cheese cake and has also recently developed a fixation on all sweets coffee flavoured (possibly not a good sign?!)
Coffee cheese cake it was!
with a chocolate biscuit & hazelnut base and Vanilla whipped cream on top
I was a bit worried the kids wouldn't actually like the coffee flavour so I also made a traditional version as well
The recipe I used can be found back here
To make the coffee version
omit the lemon rind & juice & raspberries
2 table spoons of instant coffee
mixed with 3 table spoons of warm water
mix the corn flour into the coffee mixture and add to the cheese mixture.
whip 300ml thickened cream add a touch of raw caster sugar, vanilla paste and pipe on top, sprinkle with demerara sugar.
Kids loved it and I think we will be living on cheese cake for the weekend!
Could be worse ;)
