Wonderfully creamy and rich cheesecake.

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

200g plain digestive biscuits

100g butter

400g good-quality white chocolate, broken into pieces

250g full-fat cream cheese

250ml double cream

250 g mascarpone cheese

250g blueberries

20cm (8in) non-stick springform cake tin

Resealable bag

Rolling pin

Large saucepan

Heatproof bowl

Small saucepan

Large bowl

 

30 mins + setting time
Serves 8

A perfect make-ahead dessert, prepare it in advance and pop it in the fridge.

Bash the biscuits in a resealable bag with a rolling pin, or any other blunt instrument you can do serious damage with, until you have fine crumbs.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan then add the biscuit crumbs and mix to combine. Tip the butter and biscuit mix into the base of the springform tin and press down with the back of a spoon. Cover and place in the fridge to chill while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl then set it over a small saucepan of barely simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water, and gently melt, stirring occasionally.
Beat the cream cheese, cream and mascarpone in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until well combined. Stir through the white chocolate and lastly fold in the blueberries.
Spread the mixture evenly over the top of the biscuit base, then cover and place in the fridge to chill and set for at least 2-3 hours.
Remove the cheesecake from the tin and serve in generous slices.

      Hi, I’m out of the office until 10 August 2011 and will reply to any emails on my return.

  • Annette_stone

    This was really easy to make and a complete success, had no double cream used creme fraiche, worked fine, next time might reduce the fat content if only for the waistline !

  • Helen

    Got a slice from my sister i law last week when i was in Ireland. Fantastik!

  • Lindacullen64

    Fantastic and easy to make.   A real artery clogger, so it’s only trotted out on special occasions.

  • Siobhanskeff

    Tried this with maltesers instead of blueberries……fabulous !!!

  • Anonymous

    I’m gonna make it with real forest blueberries :)

  • Amanda Whitewood

    Can’t wait to try this! Any thoughts on using frozen blueberries? If refrigerated, what do you think the shelf life would be? Thanks!

  • deen30

    Do you use cooking chocolate or normal eating chocolate?

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Ha! Yes by all means use graham crackers as an alternative :)

  • Claireinin Lee

    thank you to made my cake come true !

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Hmm I suggest taking it out of the fridge a few mins in advance of serving to give it time to come to room temp. Should cut a little easier that way.

  • Clara Painter

    I found you on YouTube a few months back, and I fell in love with this recipe. So I finally got all of the ingredients and made it yesterday; needless to say, my whole family loved it!

    Love from the US

    I live in the Netherlands and I would love to make this awesome cheesecake, but supermarkets here don’t sell cream cheese and double cream. Do you know anything I can use instead?

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      You could try mascarpone cheese and single cream. Hope you like it! :)

    • Carola

      I’m not sure in which “Netherlands” you live in because I’m Dutch born and raised and literally EVERY supermarket sells cream cheese (roomkaas, for example Philadelphia) and double cream (slagroom,) even cheap supermarkets like Lidl and Aldi carry cream cheese and double cream, let alone the fancy ones.

    • Iq.arb

      Cream cheese is like ‘monchou’ here u can find it at supermarkets like alberthijen. And double cream is ‘ vloeibaar slagroom’. Hope this helps.

  • CamillaD

    Hi! I really would like to try this recipe because it looks delicious, but I live in Italy and here we don’t have double cream… What could I use instead??

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Cream cheese can be tricky. Make sure to use room temperature cream cheese as I find it goes very watery if you use it straight from the fridge. Hope that helps!

  • Leo enki

    Awesome recipe. Tried it twice already and both turned out great. i’m preparing one tonight.
    I might slightly reduce the white chocolate though.

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Great to hear! And by all means chop and change to suit your tastes!

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Not sure what happened here but it should be visible now. Sorry about that!

    • Nora M

      Thank you! I see it now :)

  • Aquaman66

    I followed the recipe exactly but the cakes been in the fridge for 12 hours now and it still looks too runny, I`m afraid when I take it out of the springform pan it will collapse into a blob. I just out in the freezer to see if that’ll set it firmer

    Any advice ? Did I over mix it” Double-cream is the same as whipping cream (35% here in Canada) , at least that is what google says

    IUpdate: after oine hour in freezer, finally ot enough courage to unclasp the pan and it held together, looks great , and after dinner we’ll see how it tastes and which guest may have previously undetected diabetes when they drop into insulin shock LOL

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Glad it worked out for you but I’m not sure why it was runny as it’s quite a thick batter and the white chocolate should stabilise it as soon as it sets. This should only take a couple of mins really. You can see how it should look in the video! :)

      • Aquaman66

        Thanks you Donal for taking the time reply,it did look actually like it was supposed to when I removed the spring-form, and tasted exquisite ! This was the very first thing I have ever attempted to bake and I did not what to expect , so thanks for you wonderful video, I’m looking forward to another lesson when I return to the kitchen. I have posted the photo I took of my Cheesecake #1 ) just to show you all that if I can follow a recipe anyone can!

        Thanks again Donal

          Looks great. So glad you tried and liked it! :)

  • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

    Sounds delicious! :)

  • Anne van Stapele

    Is there a substitute i could use for the mascarpone? I can’t seem to find mascarpone anywhere here (trinidad) :) thanks

    • http://www.donalskehan.com/ Donal Skehan

      Regular cream cheese would work fine! :)

  • Miss Kay

    Anyone have the measurements in the USA metric system?
