Cheese? Cake?

Hi all!

If I know anything, then it's making the PERFECT cheesecake. Now it is a bit naughty, which is the opposite of what I'm trying to be at the moment. However, I'm a strong believer in having a treat every now and then. Plus there's fruit in it :/

This post is my entry the Rix Recipe Competition.

Chocolate and strawberry cheesecake 

Ingredients

  • 200g amaretti biscuits
  • 75g butter (melted)
  • 300g white chocolate
  • 150g dark chocolate 
  • 280ml double cream
  • 250g soft cheese 
  • 250gvmascarpone
  • 200g strawberries 
  • Summer fruit coulis to decorate

Method
  1. Crush the biscuits and stir in the melted butter. Put the mixture into a cake tin and smooth down with the back of a spoon.
  2. Put it in the fridge to set slightly.
  3. Melt the white chocolate in a bowl over some simmering water. Keep your eye on it!
  4. Mix together the cream, philadelphia and mascarpone. Then stir in the melted white chocolate. Finely chop the dark chocolate and fold into the mixture.
  5. Slice the strawberries and place them on the biscuit base. Then cover the strawberries with the creamy mixture. Use a palette knife to smooth over the top and finish by squirting on some fruit coulis (however fancy you wanna get!).
  6. Chill for a few hours and enjoy!
