  1. Preheat oven to 200 C. Lightly grease a 25cm springform pan with removable base with oil.
  2. To make the base: Combine crust ingredients and mix well. Spread to the edges of the pan. Prick all over with a fork, then bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Allow to cool.
  3. Increase oven temperature to 230 C.In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, eggs and yolks. Mix together thoroughly.
  4. Add cream and mix only enough to blend together.
  5. Pour filling over base and bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  6. Reduce temperature to 110 C and continue to bake for one hour. Turn oven off, but leave cake in for another hour. Don't worry if it looks a little jiggly in the centre.
  7. Chill overnight. This is imperative! If desired, top with your favourite fruit or serve plain.
