A special Birthday cake for the Special One....^^

                                       ~A piece of yAm Cheesecake~

This year I wanted to make a very special cake for my hubby's birthday. When I ask him "what cake would you like to have for your birthday?" He answer "you choose for me."
I choose a Yam Cheesecake...^^

                                                   ~Hubby's Yam Cheesecake~

Ingredients for base:
100g butter diced
170g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
2 tbsp firmly packed brown sugar
50g almond flakes, toasted

To do:
1) Melted butter in pan over low heat. Add in combined biscuits, sugar and almond flakes. Press into a greased 23cm spring form tray. Cover and put into refrigerate while preparing the filling.
**Use only pure butte or unsalted butter. Because butter will affects the taste of the biscuits base, avoid using margarine or butter substitutes.   

500g cream cheese
30g butter
160g castor sugar
700g yam, cooked and diced
2 tbsp + 2 tsp corn flour, sifted
400ml whipping cream
4 eggs lightly beaten

To do:
1) Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add castor sugar, three quarters of the yam and cornflour and beat well. Add cream and blend until mixture thickens. Slowly pour in eggs and mix until just combined. Stir in remaining yam. Pour filling on biscuits base.
2) Place cake pan in water bath. Bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or until filling is set and browned. Turn oven off. Leave cake in oven for 30 minutes with door closed. Remove water bath from oven. Leave cake cool with door ajar.
3) Cover cake pan. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours before removing cake from pan.
