La Vina's Famous Cheesecake

This recipe was in the paper years ago. I love the contrast between the caramel burnt top and the luscious filling.

Ingredients : What you need

  • Grease 1 or 2 tins and line with baking paper on base and sides

  • 7 whole eggs

  • 1kg Philadelphia cream cheese

  • 400g castor sugar

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 500g cream

Section 2: Add Numbered Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 220C

  2. Crack eggs and mix

  3. Using an electric mixer mix cream cheese until smooth (harder than it seems)

  4. Add beaten eggs slowly making sure all egg is incorporated into the cheese before adding more.

  5. Add sugar, flour and cream – blend well

  6. Pour into lined cake tins and bake for 50mins (less if making 2 cakes)

  7. Leave to completely cool before taking out of the tin.

Frank Camorra warns that the cake gets a dark look but don’t be scared, it gives it a yummy caramel taste.
