Ok, bloggees, I have scored on your behalf, and here it is, the closely-guarded, secret unto this day, cheesecake recipe.
1 lb curd cheese
1/4 lb cream cheese
5 oz caster sugar
4 oz Tomor/other hard margarine
1 1/2 oz cornflour
8 digestive biscuits crushed finely
Melt marg and mix thoroughly with biscuit crumbs. Press down firmly into 8 1/2 ins. round by 4 ins. deep cake tin and put in the fridge to set while you prepare the mixture
Cream the fat and the sugar until you cannot feel the sugar between your fingers. Combine the curd and cream cheese into the creamed sugar mix.
Set aside, and now, whisk the 3 eggs in a separate bowl until they are thick and creamy.
Slowly, add the egg mixture to the cheese together with the cornflour and pour into the tin.
Bake on 190/ centigrade/6 gas for 10-12 minutes then turn down the heat to 180 centigrade/5 gas for 10-12 minutes.
Put into the fridge immediately to cool over night.
You can put any topping on such as chocolate or fruit. You can also put a third of the cheesecak mix into the base and then put tinned black cherries ( without juice) and cover with the rest of the mix.
