    INGREDIENTS
    For the base:

    110g butter, melted
    2 tbsp milk

    For the filling:
    600g cream cheese
    3 large eggs
    150g goat’s cheese with hard rind
    100g sundried tomatoes
    8-10 baby cherry tomatoes
    30g fresh basil
    200g fresh spinach, washed
    Salt and pepper

    METHOD
    Process or crush the biscuits finely.

    To prepare the filling: beat the cheese with electric beaters or food mixer until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
    Chop the goat’s cheese and tomatoes into small pieces. Chop the basil leaves roughly.
    Blanch the spinach in boiling water for two minutes, drain, roughly chop and press on a sieve or colander to squeeze out any excess water.
    Combine all the filling ingredients, season, mix well and pour on top of the base. Arrange the baby cherry tomatoes on top. .
    Cook at 180°C for 40-45 minutes approx until the cake is firm.
