How many people does it serve?

This should be an easy question to answer, but in South Africa, it’s complicated, due to our colourful multi-cultural rainbow nation.

  1. In an Anglo Saxon household, each pizza/meal should feed between 4 to 6 guests.
  2. In a Mediterranean, Ethnic or African home it could feed as little as 1 to 3 people for a single meal as food needs to be experienced in large quantities.
  3. If you’re of Scandinavian extraction, each meal could last you a month!

Then we need to look at your emotional state, as that is a determining factor when dealing with quantities.

  1. Have you had a terrible day with your boss?
  2. Did you fight with your spouse?
  3. Are your kids driving you insane?
  4. Is your wi-fi slower than the Groot Trek?
  5. Is the lockdown getting to you?
  6. Did that hot guy from the gym eventually whatsapp you?
  7. How are you doing with those skinny jeans?
  8. Is your mother-in law doing what mother-in laws do?
  9. What season of Game of Thrones are you watching?

All these contributing factors could influence the amount you will choose to eat; Ranging from “just a slice/bite” to “call in the kitchen Calvary we’re going down babies”!

SHOPPING LIST

QUANTITIES OF INGREDIENTS

  • 1 x Patisserie, New York Baked Cheesecake
  • 4 x tbsp. unsalted butter if you only have salted you can use but do not add salt when the recipe asks for salt.
  • ½ x cup dark muscovado sugar
  • ½ x tsp cinnamon
  • ½ x tsp salt
  • 1/3 x cup chopped pecans
  • 1/3 x cup whole pecans
  • ¼ x cup cream
  • White chocolate buttons or balls. One per slice (OPTIONAL)
  • Garnish with a petal or flower (OPTIONAL)

METHOD

This recipe can easily yield enough mixture for 4 cheesecakes. You just double if you want more, depending on how many slices you would like to serve. If there is any left, place in a tupperware and in the fridge. Reheat when you need it again.

  1. Thaw your patisserie slices as per the directions on the box.
  2. Start by melting the butter in a pan or saucepan, on a medium to low heat. You don’t want a hot pan.
  3. Once all the butter has melted, add the dark muscovado sugar. Now don’t rush this, keep your eye on the pan and with a whisk keep the sugar moving.
  4. Once the sugar has melted into the butter add the cream and continuously mix until the cream, butter and sugar have all become one glorious, thick-ish consistency.
  5. Now add your ground cinnamon and salt. If you’re using salted butter do not add salt. Mix together.
  6. Lastly add your chopped and whole pecans and stir until all have become this celestial, gooey, sugary, buttery mixture!
  7. Set aside to cool down. You don’t want it too hot or it will melt the cheesecake.
  8. Once it’s cooled down bring out your patisserie slices and let’s start dressing each slice.
  9. Top each slice with a spoon or two of the cooled pecan topping mixture. Allow it to cascade down the side of each slice.
  10. Now, you can serve like that, but if you would like to make it extra special, you can top with a white chocolate ball or button and a flower petal from your garden.
