Delicious caramel vanilla cheesecake, one of my favourites. I found this recipe in an Australian newspaper many years ago.

I used this as topping on top of a dense cake similar to brownies. It was great. The flavor is fairly delicate. When making the sauce, either use a very wide and shallow saucepan, or you will need to cook it for much longer. I had to simmer mine over 90 minutes to reduce it near 2 cups, and it still wasn't quite reduced enough.
