Dreamy Desserts - Lemon Cheesecake, Chocolate Pancakes.

As requested by the Cave family- 

Isaac and Dixon's Lemon Cheesecake


Ingredients
500g cheese cream
75g fresh cream
125g caster sugar
2 whole eggs
2 egg yolks
1 fresh lemon both the zest and the juice

Base
500g Marie Biscuit
50g butter
50g caster sugar

Serves 10

Method

Crush the Marie Biscuit. Put it in the frying pan, add the butter and sugar and toast it until almost crunchy. Isaac and Dixon's secret is to drizzle some water over the pan of ingredients. After a minute put it into a cake tin. Use the flat end of a rolling pin or something heavy with a flat base to squash to base. Then bake it for thirty minutes. Remove it and let it cool. 

Now prepare the filling. Beat the cream cheese with the sugar. Then add the two whole eggs and the two egg yolks. Next add the fresh cream. And finally the lemon juice and the zest. Mix it until all evenly distributed and then pour it on top of the biscuit base.

Put it in the gas oven at 180 degrees Celsius for forty five minutes or until the cheesecake is done.


Serve with a slice of lemon and passion fruit.

As requested by Zanny and Francesca for Grandma Anne!

Isaac and Dixon's Choccie Pancakes


Ingredients
1 1/2 cup (375ml) milk
1 cup (220g) plain flour
1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp of vanilla

Chocolate sauce
200g dark chocolate
2 1/2 tblsp fresh cream

Serves 10

Method
Mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Heat a non stick frying pan over medium raw heat. Rub the pan with butter (we are struggling in the kitchen to explain this, just don't do it with bare hands. I think the point the guys are trying to make is you don't need lots of butter). "So brush rub whatever!" As directed by Dixon. Then pour the mixture in so that it covers the pan, keeping it nice and in. Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn the pancake and cook for one minute or until golden brown.

Sauce
Melt the chocolate with the fresh creams and drizzle over the pancakes.
