Raspberry Cheesecake

I have a big soft spot for cheesecake. Chocolate, strawberry and lemon are all well loved by the family but raspberry is a definite favourite! This is an incredibly easy recipe and the Mini Mes often make it unaided... This one was in fact made by Minxy.

Not a fan of raspberries? Use an alternative berry of your choice.








Ingredients

Base
220g digestive biscuits
75g melted butter
Topping
225g cream cheese (we used Philadelphia)
55g caster sugar
200ml double cream, whipped
100g raspberries


Method 
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Break the biscuits up into crumbs in a bowl
  • Melt the butter in a pan on a low heat, pour into the biscuits and stir well.
  • Pour the biscuit and butter mixture into a loose bottom cake tin (approx 10") and bake for 8 -10 minutes until firm.
  • Allow to cool
  • Combine the soft cheese and sugar in a bowl and then add in the raspberries, saving a few for decoration if you wish.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the double cream until light and fluffy and then gently stir into the cream cheese mixture.
  • Spread evenly on top of the base and place in the fridge to set for several hours (8-12).
Scoff!

  3. Wow. I LOVE cheesecake. Problem is most of the family are dairy free. So I would have to eat it all..... #worthit It's nearly my birthday too - I usually have a lemon cheesecake my mum makes, might suggest this as an alternative!

  13. Cheesecake is a firm favourite but some reason we never make one from scratch. We always buy a packet mix or a frozen one. Kaycee (8) loves cooking and baking so I reckon it's time I got her to whip up a cheesecake for dessert one night next week....if I ever get this kitchen decorated!

  14. The fact that you don't have to cook this makes it super easy! Haven't made cheesecake for a while! My favourite is key lime cheesecake!

    I recently posted: Chocolate + Peanut Ice-Cream Cake
