Easy-to-make desserts, given a dash of African Original flavour with Amarula.
Preheat the oven to 200˚C.
Using a food processor, crumble the tennis biscuits and while doing so, pour in the melted butter. Combine well. Then, using your hands, press the biscuit crust into the base of a spring form cake tin. Place in the fridge to set hard.
Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy, and while beating continuously, add the sugar and then the flour. Mix in the vanilla extract, the eggs and the Amarula. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for five minutes, then reduce the temperature to 100˚C and bake for one hour. Allow to cool in the oven before taking it out.
Bring the Amarula and cream to the boil, lower the heat and add the white chocolate. Mix together until smooth and then pour it over the cake. Garnish with fresh strawberries or maraschino cherries, mint leaves and freshly whipped cream.
