Nothing says ‘Welcome Home!’ like Oreo New York Cheesecake

Circe's Kitchen

This weekend my little brother is back from University, and as he is a young man who is able to eat whatever he wants without worrying about calories etc., I baked a chocolate-laden cheesecake in his honour. This was inspired by a cheesecake we all used to received as a ‘birthday cake’ when we were younger from The English Cheesecake Factory (hands down beats a jam-and-cream sponge every time). There’s not TOO much additional sugar added to this, which makes it creamy without being overly sweet (as a lot of sweetness comes from the biscuits anyway).

Looking forward to a bumper Easter weekend of baking next week!
