(Serves 12)

CRUST

2          packets (150 g each) crushed Oreo biscuits

70 g     butter, melted

FILLING

600 g   cream cheese, room temperature

100 ml castor sugar

30 ml   flour

350 g   Nutella

4          eggs

NUTELLA TOPPING

200 g   Nutella

120 g   Tomes dark chocolate, chopped

125 ml cream

CHOCOLATE WHIPPED CREAM

250 ml cream

60 ml   castor sugar

60 ml   cacao

Ferrero Rocher chocolates for decoration

METHOD:

  • Preheat the oven to 150°C. Line a well-greased 23 cm loose bottomed cake tin with baking paper.
  • Combine the crushed Oreo biscuits and melted butter to make the crust. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared cake tin. Bake for 8 minutes, remove from the oven and cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 130°C.
  • Meanwhile make the filling by beating the cream cheese, castor sugar, flour and Nutella on low speed to combine. If using a mixer use the paddle attachment. Try not to whip in any air.
  • Add the eggs one at a time and beat on low speed until incorporated. Spoon the filling into the cooled crust.
  • Cover the cake tin with foil around the bottom and sides. Use wide foil to avoid getting a seam in the foil (it must be completely sealed from water) and – place the cake tin inside another larger pan. Fill the outside pan with enough hot water to go about halfway up the sides of the cake tin. (TIP – MAKE SURE NO WATER CAN GET TO THE CAKE TIN)
  • Bake for 1 hour and 30 minutes. Open the oven door a little and cool for about 1 hour before removing the cheesecake from the oven and water bath. Top with two thirds of the Nutella filling and place in the fridge overnight.
  • To make the filling: Combine all the ingredients and place in the microwave for 15-20 seconds at a time, stirring well each time, until the mixture is melted and smooth.
  • Cool for about 5 minutes.
  • To make the whipped cream topping: whip together all the ingredients until stiff and place into a piping bag with a star nozzle
  • Remove the cheesecake from the cake tin and place on a serving plate.
  • Pipe the whipped cream around the outer edge of the cheesecake, drizzle with the left over Nutella topping and garnish with the Ferrero Rocher chocolates
