Method

SALTED CARAMEL SAUCE

  1. Heat sugar over medium heat, stirring constantly with a heatproof spoon.
  2. After sugar melts, stop stirring and cook until the caramel reaches a deep caramel colour. Turn off heat, add butter. 
  3. Slowly whisk in the cream and salt. If there are lumps of sugar, return the caramel to low heat and stir until the lumps melt. Carefully pour caramel into a heatproof jug and reserve at room temperature until needed. 

APPLE LAYER 

  1. Place all ingredients into a saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Cook for 5-10 minutes, or until apples are tender. Pour apples into a heatproof bowl and reserve until needed. 

WHIPPED CREAM

  1. Place all ingredients into a bowl. Using the Sunbeam Mixmaster Hand Mixer, whisk the cream on medium speed until stiff peaks form. Set aside until needed. 

CHEESECAKE

  1. Place all ingredients into a clean bowl. Beat all ingredients until smooth. 

BISCUIT BASE

  1. Place all ingredients into the bowl of the food processor and process until a fine crumb. Set aside.
