Try this classic but delicious Indulgent New York Cheesecake.
sunflower oil, to grease
75g unsalted butter, melted
150g digestive biscuits, crushed
800g cream cheese
160g caster sugar
200ml sour cream
3 tsp vanilla extract
fresh berries to serve
- Preheat oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Grease the side of a 20cm high-sided springform tin with the sunflower oil.
- Melt the butter over a low heat. Once the butter has cooled, combine with the crushed digestives and press firmly into the tin so you have a flat and even base.
- In a large bowl beat together the cream cheese, sugar, sour cream and vanilla extract. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well to fully combine. Pour the mixture onto the base and smooth out. Place in the centre of the oven and bake for about 1 hour, until the top is slightly browned and just set with a little wobble in the middle. Once cool, chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour prior to serving.
- Remove the tin, slide the cheesecake onto a plate and decorate with fresh berries. Serve and enjoy!
