    Golden syrup caramel
  • 60g butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup golden syrup

  1. Preheat oven to 150C/130C fan-forced. Grease and line the base of a 20cm-round (base) springform pan. Combine rolled oats, flour and coconut in a bowl.

Mix well to combine. Stand for 5 minutes. Press mixture over base and side of prepared pan, leaving a 1cm border around top edge of pan.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until just combined. Pour mixture into pan, levelling top with spatula. Place pan on baking tray. Bake for 50 minutes or until filling is just set (cake will wobble slightly in the centre). Turn oven off. Cool cheesecake in oven for 1 hour with door slightly ajar. Cool at room temperature. Refrigerate overnight.
  3. Meanwhile, make Golden syrup caramel: Place butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring for 5 minutes or until smooth. Stir in cream.

  4. Remove cheesecake from pan. Stand cheesecake and sauce at room temperature for 10 minutes. Drizzle golden syrup caramel over centre of cheesecake. Serve.
