Ultimate Tim Tam-tastic cheesecake recipe

There are cheesecake recipes and there are cheesecake recipes. This is definitely both! Opulent creamy cheesy filling with a buttery base of black forest Tim Tam biscuit and the secret to our friend Clare’s success.

Mrs Romance is known for not liking cake that’s made of cake. It sounds a bit screwy until you realise what she means. Cheesecake, pavlova, chocolate mousse cake are all cakes not made of cake, and they’re all within the remit.

So when our friend Clare announced she was going through a cheesecake-making phase, Mrs Romance’s interested peaked like the perfect meringue.

Clare was kind enough to share with us the secret to the success of her cheesecakes as she combined the special edition Tim Tams we’d brought her from Australia into her special cheesecake recipe.

If you can’t get Tim Tams, you can try all kinds of other chocolate biscuit to mix into the base. The Black Forest Tim Tams give the base a delicious cherry flavour though, with little bits of chewiness that break up the crunch of the biscuit.
