Blueberry And White Chocolate Cheesecake

Wonderfully creamy and rich cheesecake.

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

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

 

Serves 6–8
200g (7oz) Plain digestive biscuits
100g (31/2oz) butter
400g (14oz) good-quality white chocolate, broken into pieces
250g (9oz) full-fat cream cheese
250ml (81/2fl oz) double cream
250g (9oz) mascarpone cheese
250g (9oz) blueberries

Equipment:
20cm (8in) non-stick springform tin

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. Place the crumbs in a large bowl.

Melt the butter in a large pan then add to 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 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 top of the biscuit base, cover and place in the fridge 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.

    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 !!!

    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 !

    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.

    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.

  • 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.

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