Recipe Success Tips


Opt for homemade pumpkin puree for superior flavor and texture. Creating your own puree is not only healthier but also enhances the overall quality of your dish.


Choose full-fat cream cheese for a firmer and cleaner slice of cheesecake. This ingredient plays a crucial role in the cheesecake's texture and stability.


Allow the cheesecake to set in the refrigerator. After removing it from the oven, let it cool to room temperature, and then refrigerate until it reaches the desired firmness, preferably overnight for the best results.


To determine when your cheesecake is ready, observe the sides – they should begin to puff, while the center will retain a slight wobble. Remember, the filling will continue to set as it cools. Be cautious not to overcook, as this can lead to unsightly cracks in your cheesecake.

For the Base

  • 400g ginger biscuits

  • 130g unsalted butter, melted

For the Filling

  • 500g pumpkin puree, homemade or canned

  • 650g cream cheese (Philadelphia) - full fat cream cheese

Method

Prepare the biscuit base


1. Grease and line with parchment paper a 23 cm (9-in.) springform pan. Wrap the outside with 2 sheets of foil - up the sides. In a small saucepan, melt the butter. Set aside.

2. In a food procesor, mix the ginger biscuits to a fine crumb. Or, place the biscuits in a large ziplock bag and crush it with a rolling pin into fine crumb. Mix in the melted butter, then evenly press into the prepared pan. so it comes a few centimetres up to the sides. Refrigerate until prepare the filling.


Prepare the filling

3. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F/ gas mark 4 ). In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, put the cream cheese, cornflour, and sugar. Beat until smooth and light. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, pumpkin puree and double (whipping\heavy cream) until smooth. Mix in vanilla, ginger and salt. Pour in the prepared pan.


4. Put the springform pan in a high-sided roasting pan, then carefully, pour boiling water into the roasting pan so that it comes almost halfway up the sides - don't get any on the cheesecake.


5. Bake for 1 hour, until golden-brown; the cake is just set and the sides begin to puff but the center will be slightly wobbly.


6. Turn off the oven, leave the door ajar and allow the cheesecake to cool in the oven for 1 hour. Remove from the oven, cool to room temperature, then put in the fridge until firm up or ideally, overnight.


To Serve


7. Warm the caramel sauce and drizzle over the cheesecake.
