Bramley Apple Baked Cheesecake

Bramley Apple Baked Cheesecake

A traditional baked cheesecake recipe, this dish will easily serve eight to 10 and is a great way to use up surplus Bramley apples, which are in season during August and September. You can keep the fat content down by using low fat soft cheese and serve with crème fraîche rather than custard or cream.

  • 75g butter 
  • 30g/2 tbsp caster sugar 
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten 
  • 2 tbsp water

  • 50g caster sugar 
  • 2 tsp orange flower water or 1 tsp vanilla extract
