Anzac cheesecake Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 150C/130C fan-forced. Grease and line the base of a 20cm-round (base) springform pan.
  2. Combine oats, flour and coconut in a bowl.  In a small non stick fry pan, add butter, golden syrup and brown sugar over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until melted and smooth. Stand for 2 minutes. Add butter mixture to coconut mixture. Mix well to combine. Stand for 5 minutes. Press mixture over base and side of prepared pan, leaving a 1cm border around top edge of pan.
  3. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until just combined. Pour mixture into pan, levelling top with spatula. Place pan on baking tray. Bake for 50 minutes or until filling is just set (cake will wobble slightly in the centre). Turn oven off. Cool cheesecake in oven for 1 hour with door slightly ajar. Cool at room temperature. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. Meanwhile, make Golden syrup caramel: Place butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until smooth. Stir in cream. Bring to the boil. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool for 20 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Cover. Refrigerate overnight.
  5. Remove cheesecake from pan. Stand cheesecake and sauce at room temperature for 10 minutes. Drizzle golden syrup caramel over centre of cheesecake. Serve.
