I tried my own recipe at banana toffee cheesecake a few days ago. Abang smashed the digestive biscuits, and I mustered the whole lot. I couldn't seem to recall the exact measurements and ingredients (whoops..) for the usual classic cheesecake I used to make. Nonetheless, there was no stopping my recent urge to have banana toffee cheesecake. I searched hi and lo for a good (define good, eh?!) recipe on the net but was adamant to try my own mixture.
You see, I remember my good 'ol PE lecturer's recipe for excellent toffee: boil a can (unopened) of condensed milk in a pan of water for approximately 2 hours. You'll get toffee that can be enjoyed with vanilla ice-cream or any other deserts, for that matter. Furthermore, I also vaguely remember the cheesecake I used to prepare during good 'ol Edinburgh days... So, the result was this:
I am definitely not satisfied with the texture so I've got an idea of how I'll be altering it the next time (when can that be??). The excellent photos were taken by my private photographer, mamasarah. I charged her house with the imperfect cheesecake just for fun. It's always better sharing with others, right? After all, aren't we famous (an understatement indeed!) for our English afternoon teas?
Before anyone even thinks about getting the recipe, just hold on to your horses and let me get the combination right. Then, who knows, perhaps I'll even invite you all for tea!
