White Chocolate Cheesecake Slices

When I think of summer desserts, cheesecakes are always the first to spring to mind, and this is a delicious one that I've made a few times that my family adore. It goes perfectly with some fresh summer berries too!




Ingredients

Base
9oz butter, softened
15oz caster sugar
2 eggs
14oz plain flour
2oz cocoa powder 
Pinch of salt
Topping
90g white chocolate
300g cream cheese
2oz icing sugar
1 egg


Method
  • Cream together the butter and caster sugar in a bowl then gradually add in the 2 eggs followed by the flour, cocoa and salt, combining it well.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
  • Spread the mixture out evenly into a lined baking tray (9" x 12" approx) and place it into the fridge for 40 minutes to set.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes then allow to cool (do not remove from the tray).
  • To make the topping, melt the chocolate in a bowl above boiling water and then allow to cool slightly.
  • Mix the cream cheese with the icing sugar and egg then pour in the melted chocolate, combining well.
  • Spread the topping over the base and bake for 25 minutes/until set.
  • Remove from the oven, allow to cool completely then chill in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Slice the cheesecake into 12 equal rectangles and store in the fridge.
  • Scoff!

To create a spotted look, save a small amount of the base mixture in the fridge and then crumble it on top of the topping before it is baked.
