We know you’re really excited to get into the steps of making the cheesecake, but before you do that, you will need to get these ingredients ready first:
- Lotus biscoff
- 5g black tea
- 100g milk
- 40g caster sugar
- 10g powdered gelatine
- 300g cream cheese
- 250g light cream
Once you’ve got all these ingredients, it’s time to start!
Step 1: Place cold water in a small bowl and sprinkle with 10g of powdered gelatine while whisking with a fork. Set aside for about 5 minutes or until it becomes spongy.
Step 2: In the meantime, place 300g of cream cheese into a bowl and place the bowl in a pot of hot water to melt the cream cheese.

Step 4: Stand the bowl with the gelatine in a heatproof bowl of hot water and stir until the gelatine dissolves. Ensure that the water is not boiling hot as high heat will destroy the gelatine’s ability to set. Let the gelatine cool for a bit after it dissolves.
Step 5: Pour the 100g of milk and 5g of black tea into a saucepan and place it on the stove. Simmer on low heat. until the mixture turns slightly brown.
Step 6: Once the mixture turns slightly brown from the tea, pour the dissolved gelatine into the saucepan. Mix well.
Step 7: Pour this mixture into the bowl with the melted cream cheese and caster sugar. Stir until it is uniform without any lumps.
Step 8: In a separate bowl, beat the light cream for approximately six minutes with a mixer until it becomes whipped cream. Add the whipped cream to the mixture bowl. Mix until it is uniform.
Step 9: Line a cake pan with baking sheets and pour the mixture into the pan. Place this pan into the refrigerator for at least four hours before serving.
Step 10: When serving, cut the cheesecake into portions before adding two pieces of the Lotus biscoff to it to make a Lotus biscoff cheesecake sandwich.
