    Was unsure wether 2 put the lid on when steaming – had a lot of steam drip into the cheesecake. Therefore took it off …. What did u do? Leave it off?

    Am still varoming it, but it looks good. Will let u know how it tastes.

    Thanks , Anne

    Hi Anne,
    Many thanks for your post, I would try and protect the cake by loosely placing a piece of baking paper on top but I steam puddings from our Varoma demo all the time and have had little impact on the end result with the dripping from the lid. If you take the Varoma lid off the heat won’t circulate appropriately…. how did it end up???

    Hi Pascale,

    Thanks for visiting. The chocolate cream bikkies are like oreos. Have you heard of them? Basically a sandwhich cookie 2 chocolate cookies stuck together by sweet white filling. Hope this helps.

    I usually place a paper towel on top of the cheesecake after it comes out just to mop the excess water off the top of the cake. It will be fine after it is refrigerated.

    Surely you mean 150g not 150 biscuits?

    Will try it one day.
