Salted Caramel Cheesecake Instructions

Firstly you will need to make the caramel that will go inside the filling. Place the sugar and water in a pan. Heat gently until the sugar turns a nice golden color. Do not stir the sugar and water just swirl it around as it may crystallize and clump. Once you have the color you want to remove the pan from the heat and add the butter, Stir thoroughly.
Make three flat circles of caramel by pouring onto waxed paper. Sprinkle with some salt and place to one side to harden.

  • Now you can make the biscuit base. Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour, oat bran and sugar. Stir and allow to turn a golden brown.
    Once the biscuit crumbs are a nice golden brown add the melted butter and mix through.
    Pour into a springform pan and press down into the tin and make a smooth base. Place in the fridge to chill whilst you make the cheesecake filling.
  • Place the cream cheese and the powdered sugar in a bowl and add the lemon juice and zest. Add the vanilla essence and beat together until smooth and fluffy.
    Whisk the cream until thick and then spoon onto the cheese and sugar mixture and stir through.

  • Place one-third of the cream into the baking tin on top of the cookie base. Remove a circle of caramel from the waxed paper and place onto the filling.
    Place another third of the filling into the tin and top with another circle of caramel. Place the remaining cheesecake filling into the tin and smooth the top.
    Pop the cheesecake in the fridge to firm up.
  • Now you can make the caramel sauce by melting the sugar and water together. Once it is a lovely caramel color remove from the heat and add the cream. Place to one side to allow to cool.
  • When you are ready to serve your cheesecake, remove from the tin and place onto a serving plate. Decorate with the caramel popcorn and broken caramel pieces.
    Cut a slice and serve topped with the creamy caramel sauce.
