Bonne Maman Caramel Cheesecake Recipe

Ah, Bonne Maman!  Who doesn't love the iconic French jams in the country-chic red and white jars?  I love their jams and feel ever so French when I have a jar in the pantry - it just invokes memories of my carefree Parisian jaunts back in the day when I had yet to become a mother (I had so much spare time back then... lol!).  Bonne Maman is launching a new product very soon, which will be available nationwide from mid-July.  This decadent Bonne Maman Caramel spread is unctuous, gooey and has a lovely deep caramelly flavour.  You may have already tried the caramel spread as there are a few select bakeries and cafes who use the Bonne Maman Caramel in their pastries (including Noisette's caramel doughnuts).

The Eat and Be Merry Crew were offered to try out a jar or two Bonne Maman's Caramel spread. I was impressed that the caramel was made with all-natural ingredients and no colourings or preservatives (which meant I could share this with Boy Chick).

Having tasted it on its own, it's not too sweet as far as caramel goes.  Initially, I thought of slathering the caramel all over a pile of pancakes but I had a even better idea - caramel cheesecake!

The caramel cheesecake uses a whole jar of Bonne Maman Caramel.  While this may sound excessive I can assure you this yields a mellowly sweet cheesecake that's very moreish but isn't  teeth-achingly sweet.  In fact, the cheesecake has an almost salted caramel flavour - I think the saltiness comes from the cream cheese.

  2. Press the biscuit crumbs firmly along the base of a non-stick springform tin (or line a cake tin with greaseproof paper).
