Lotus Caramelised Biscoff Cheesecake (English Cheesecake Company) [By @Cinabar]

Following on from yesterday’s curious mix of ingredients, today we have another two brands teaming up together. This time it's the English Cheesecake Company and Lotus Biscoff, which sounds just fab to me! The cheesecakes are available online, and are delivered next day. There was note in with ours saying that it had been frozen before being sent and packed with dry ice before being couriered. The dry ice had evaporated into carbon dioxide when the cake arrived, but it had done its job as the cake was very cold and felt still frozen in places.

When we unpacked it the cake was an amazing sight, it was huge and covered in loads of crumbled Lotus Caramelised Biscoff biscuit crumbs. We cut into the cake and realised you could get about 12 servings from it, so they are perfect for a party. Once cut it revealed a luscious layer of thick caramel underneath the biscuit topping. Curiously the biscuit base is not made with Lotus Biscoff biscuits, but a more traditional Digestive. I guess this is more solid and stable.
This was my first try of an English Cheesecake Company cake, and I couldn't wait to tuck in. The cheesecake part is sweet and creamy, and its fluffy nature makes it ever so light. The caramel sauce is a bit more heavy, but the spicy biscuit crumbs just gives this the perfect moreish finish. IT was a pleasure to eat, from the mix of textures to the biscuit crumb working so perfectly with the cheese section. These cheesecake are a bit of an event, but are an absolutely worthy treat.
