I baked a cake and ate it. Why? Because it was my birthday. And since it was my birthday, I got choose what cake to bake and how much calories to take. Creme Brûlée , my all-time favourite dessert  , incorporated into a cake. What a treat! So this year, no procrastination of what's inevitable , no thoughtful speech about  should haves and must haves  . Today , it's all  about  this delicious cake which was pretty easy to make, and being thankful  for another year of wonderful existence.


200 g graham/ leibnitzs biscuits
60 g butter, melted
3 tbsp. brown sugar

Creme Cheese Brûlée :
2 packs Philadelphia cheese ( 180 g each)
2 eggs
4 egg yolk
1/2 cup sugar ( more if you like your cake sweeter)
1 tsp. vanilla

3 tbsp. brown sugar

Let's get cracking!

1.  Crush graham crackers or any biscuits of your choice in a manner most convenient to you.
2.  Add in melted butter and brown sugar. Mix until mixture resembles wet sand.

 3. Grease springform pan. I used 20 cm  pan.  Line the bottom and sides with baking paper. The butter will act like a glue, but I guess you know it .
4. Dump crushed biscuit mixture. Pat using the back of spoon or using hands. Squeaky clean hands, of course! Put in the fridges for about 30 minutes to set.
5.  Then bake in a preheated oven, 200°c for 10 minutes. Take out from the oven and allow to cool.
6.  Now, for the creme cheese brûlée batter, just dump everything in a food processor or blender, mix until smooth. That's it! Allow to rest for about 20 minutes to pop unwanted air bubbles . 
7 . Pour batter into the biscuit crust.
8.  Bake for 40 minutes at 180° c or until set but middle still jiggly. The cake will set as it cools. 
9. Refrigerate, bake a day before for best result. Have a stress free day or birthday for that matter! (wink! wink! ) Remove baking paper.

Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the cake. And if you're old enough to play with fire, then  have fun torching those sugar !

Now, if you are celebrating your special day...

Sit back and appreciate your not -so- hard labour.

 Close your eyes and make a wish.

 Blow your birthday candle and hope for the best.

Enjoy a slice with people that matters most and just be grateful of this day the days to come.
The good and the bad because you know, that's life.
