A showstopper at events and a well-deserved treat when solitary, the French Bakery Caramel Cheesecake is a study in elevating a simple dessert to the plane of art and sophistication.
- The cheesecake starts off with a base of Digestive biscuits, firm and complementary against the creaminess of the rest of the dessert.
- What follows is a consistent block of smooth textured cream cheese that is irregularly streaked with caramel syrup.
- The top of the cake is bathed in a neat rectangle of salty and sweet caramel sauce that has a striking amber hue.
- Topped with a dollop of thick caramel syrup and a chocolate square.
