Work Catering #36: Last of 2013 - Tim tam Cheesecake!

So this is the last of my "Work Catering" series for 2013! It's been a really fun year! Enjoyed baking and being creative/adventurous each week! (haha! sounds like I am saying a farewell speech or something =p). Hopefully I can continue next year though! Anyways Baking Tray will still be baking so don't worry!
Deleeecious cheesecake :D
To end off the year I stuck with what I loveee to bake (or NOT bake).. and that's CHEESECAKE :D This time I used Tim Tams! Because.. who DOESN'T love Tim Tams?? Classic Aussie chocolate biscuits! Too bad America doesn't have them! They are missing out!! (btw I am not sponsored by Tim Tams at all.. but.. not saying no either if they are reading this post XD)

This recipe was originally for a round cake (22cm) but I have modified it to be made as a slice.

Tim Tam Cheesecake
Recipe adapted from Butter Hearts Sugar


Chocolate base
250g plain chocolate biscuits (I used chocolate ripple biscuits0
120g butter, melted

Cheesecake filling
2 tsp powdered gelatine
2 tbs boiling water
375g cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup caster sugar
300ml thickened cream
180g white chocolate, melted
300g Tim Tams (~ 1 1/2 packets), roughly chopped

1. Line baking slice pan (20x30cm) with foil.
2. Crush/process biscuits until fine crumbs. Add melted butter and process until combined. Press mixture evenly over the base of pan and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
3. Make filling by beating cream cheese, vanilla and sugar with electric beaters until smooth. Beat in cream until combined.
5. In a small heatproof bowl, dissolve gelatine in boiling water. Add to cream cheese mixture along with melted white chocolate. Beat until combined.
6. Stir through chopped Tim Tams.
7. Spread into pan, smoothing over the top. Refrigerate for at lease 3 hours until set.

This cheesecake is REALLLLLLLLYYY good! it's probably up there with the White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake and Apple Crumble Cheesecake! Or maybe I'm just biased towards cheesecake =p

Next up is another easy no bake slice with MILO! (Also not sponsored by Milo =p). I used to drink this everyday back when I was in primary school! Not so much anymore but this slice brought me back to those days. It's quite sticky and sweet but a lovely Milo topping crunch!

250g packet Marie biscuits

4 tbs Milo

2. Crush/process biscuits until fine crumbs. 
3. Place butter and condensed milk into large saucepan. Stir over low heat until butter has melted and mixture has combined. 
4. Add crushed biscuits and Milo. Stir until well combined.
5. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and use the back of a metal spoon to even it out. Refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm.
6. For the topping, place butter and chocolate in bowl over a double boiler. Mix until melted then pour evenly over slice. Sprinkle with Milo and refrigerate until set. 
yummy sticky and sweet Milo slice~
Could have improved the white chocolate middle layer...
