Baked Caramel Cheesecake

This was bound to happen much sooner than now, seeing as I have this love affair with Caramel! And it was great…
I made a smallish cheesecake as this is very rich and only a small slice is enough to stop a sweet tooth’s craving.
NESTLe {no, I am not getting paid to say this…} made my day when they brought out their Caramel and Chocolate line!
This time I remembered to keep a pen and paper handy to write down exactly what I did – I make so many recipes which turn out delicious… and when I want to share it with you, I can not remember half of what I used and the quantities, … well, you know when you make something at a whim, the quantity of this or that needs adjusting all the time, and that is hard to remember what you ended up with.
And for you guys that need to boil a can of Condensed Milk to get the Caramel version – IT IS TOTALLY WORTH IT with this recipe.

Baked Caramel Cheesecake


100g Digestive Biscuits, finely crumbed {I used the one with the chocolate on top}
3 TB Butter, melted
3/4 can (of a 397g) Caramel Condensed Milk
250g Cream Cheese, softened
2 TB Flour
6 TB Caster Sugar
1 t Caramel Concentrate or Essence
1 Extra-Large Egg
Handful of Caramel Toffees, roughly chopped
1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) – Spray a 18cm (7 inch) oven pie dish with Spray ‘N Cook.
2.) Mix the Digestive biscuits and the melted Butter – press into the bottom of the dish.
3.) Beat the Caramel Condensed Milk and the Cream Cheese together until smooth – add the Flour, Caster sugar, Caramel Concentrate and the Egg – beat until well combined.
4.) Stir in the chopped Caramel Toffees – transfer the mixture to the pie dish.
5.) Bake for 35 – 40 minutes until the edges browns and start to pull away from the dish’s side {the center will still be a bit wobbly}
6.) When it reached this stage, switch off the oven, open the door slightly and leave the cheesecake in the oven for another 15 – 20 minutes.
7.) Remove from oven and let cool and set completely in the dish.
Decorate as you wish – I used the remaining Caramel Condensed Milk in the can and dusted lightly with Icing Sugar.
This one is worth the extra kilograms/pounds grams/ounces !  Promise…
Ciao for now,
Linking up with these cool parties:
