Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 120 g crushed digestive biscuits or graham crackers about 1 cup
  • 120 g crushed biscoff (lotus) biscuits about 1 cup
  • 135 g melted butter 1 stick and 1 tablespoon
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the cheesecake:

  • 900 g cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar 300 g
  • 3/4 cup milk, room temperature
  • 4 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream 240 g
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour 32g

For topping:

  • 1/2 cup lotus (biscoff) spread
  • whole lotus(biscoff) biscuits for topping

Instructions

For the crust:

  • In a mixing bowl, combine both crushed biscuits, the melted butter, and the cinnamon with a fork until crumbs are moistened evenly throughout. Press along the bottom and sides of a lightly greased 9 inch springform pan. Use the base of a measuring cup and press it on to the crumb mixture into the pan to really pack the crumbs tightly down. Let the crust chill a little in the fridge while you prepare cheesecake.

For the cheesecake:

  • Preheat the oven to 180 C (350 F).
  • Preferably using a stand mixer, combine the cream cheese with the sugar in a large bowl and mix on medium speed until well combined and fluffy. Blend in the milk, then add the eggs one at a time, mixing briefly after each addition.
  • Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. It may be easier to sift in the flour.
  • Pour filling into prepared crust. Bake at 180 C for 1 hour, then turn off the oven and leave cheesecake inside for another 5 hours or so until oven has completely cooled. This is to prevent cracking. (Alternately, if baking in a water bath, turn oven off after 1 hour, and leave cheesecake for a further 1 hour in the oven before removing and chilling.)
  • Store cheesecake in fridge after this time period is over until chilled, then you can go on to topping and decorating it.

Topping the cheesecake:

  • Microwave the lotus spread for the topping for 30 seconds, stirring halfway through. You want it to be runny and melted.
  • Pour the lotus spread over the surface of the chilled cheesecake, using a spatula to spread it evenly.
  • Garnish the top with extra whole lotus biscuits if desired, then place back in the fridge just until lotus spread has set. Serve cold straight out of the fridge.
