How to make the peanut butter cheesecake
- Grease a 23cm spring form tin with butter or a grease proof spray.
- Preheat your oven to 180°C
- Mix the melted butter and ground peanuts together in a bowl.
- Press the mixture down onto the base and sides of the cake tin. Make sure it is smooth and in an even layer.
- Beat the cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, flour and vanilla essence together in a bowl until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Add the eggs and the milk to the mixture.
- Split the mixture in two parts.
- Add the dark chocolate to one half.
- Pour half of the peanut butter mixture onto the peanut crumbs.
- Pour all of the chocolate mixture on top and add the rest of the peanut butter mixture on top of that.
- Swirl the batter around with a skewer or a fork.
- Bake in the oven for 30 to 35 min.
