Oreo Cheese Cake – no bake type
Adapted from The Baking Biatch

Ingredients:

Crust:
200g oreo biscuits (without the cream)- crushed fine
100g melted butter
30g sugar

Method: Mix all the above together until blended. Place a cake ring adjusted to 8 or 9″ diameter and place on a cake board. Pour the mixture into the ring and press until level and compact. Chill while you prepare the next step.

Filling:
320g Cream cheese, softened
320g Plain yoghurt
95g sugar
2.5 tablespoons of gelatin (I would reduce to 2 tablespoons next time)
130ml hot water

50g of crushed oreo (without cream)

Method:

1. Bloom gelatin in the hot water then microwave for 1 minute until fully dissolved. Let it cool to room temperature.
2. In the stand mixer with balloon whisk, beat the cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Add the cooled gelatin with the mixer running on low until well combined. Scrap down and mix again for few seconds until well combined.
3. Add yoghurt and beat to incorporate.
4. Stop the machine, switch to a spatula and add the crushed oreo. Mix well. Take out the chilled crust from the freezer and pour in the cheese mixture. Level the top and arrange oreo around the cake. Freeze for 1-2 hours before removing the ring and transfer cake to the fridge. Chill over night before cutting.

Did a firmer ganache using 200g chocolate to 100g of cream, cool to warm then apply to cover whole cake. Chill a few minutes then warm up balance ganache and pour on the top to do the drips.

Method:

1.Mix cocoa powder with hot water, then add in Nutella and mix until smooth. Set aside.
2.In a separate bowl mix egg yolks, vanilla, salt, oil and milk until blended. Add in the cocoa mixture and whisk until well combined.
3. Sift both the flours and baking powder together into the yolk mixture and mix until smooth. Set aside.
4. Beat egg whites with medium speed until foamy before adding cream of tartar. Continue to beat while gradually add in castor sugar and continue to beat until firm peak. Reduce mixer speed to lowest and continue to beat a minute.
5.Gently fold the meringue in 3 portions, into egg yolk batter until well blended.
6.Pour batter evenly into a bottom lined and greased 8″ pan and bake in a hot water bath at 170C for 30 minutes then reduce to 150C for another hour or until cooked. Temperature and timing is given as a guide only, adjust according to your own oven.
7. Once baked, remove from oven and wait till cake has pulled away from the side of the pan before unmoulding.
8. While cake is cooling, prepare ganache by heating up the whipping cream to almost boiling then pour over the chocolate. Let it stand for a minute before stirring until smooth. Add butter for the shine and let it cooled to room temperature before using.
