    by Shell

    Ingredients (serves 10)

    • 200g packet shredded wheat biscuits
    • 80g reduced-fat spread, melted
    • 250g light cream cheese, softened
    • 1/4 cup caster sugar
    • 1 teaspoon finely grated orange rind
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup skim sweetened condensed milk
    • 1 tablespoon demerara sugar
    • strawberries, to serve


    1. Preheat oven 170°C/150°C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm-deep, 22cm (base) round fluted loose-base flan tin.
    2. Process biscuits until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add spread. Process until just combined. Press mixture evenly over base and side of prepared tin. Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool.
    3. Process cream cheese, sugar, orange rind, vanilla, eggs and milk until smooth and combined. Pour cream cheese mixture over base. Bake for 20 minutes or until just set. Cool to room temperature. Cover. Refrigerate for 3 hours or until chilled.
    4. Position grill tray close to grill as possible. Heat grill on medium-high. Sprinkle sugar over cheesecake. Place under grill. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes or until sugar melts and caramelises (see tip). Set aside for 5 minutes or until toffee sets. Serve with strawberries.


    • Cover edge of biscuit base around rim of pan with foil to prevent burning.
