Easter Cheesecake

Thought I’d share another diabetes-inducing recipe! This baked chocolate cheesecake is delicious, and much cheaper than versions that use cream cheese and creme fraiche. Give it a try!

Ingredients

200g chocolate digestive biscuits
50g butter, softened
200g chocolate (I usually use one slab of dark and one of milk)
100ml double cream
2 organic eggs
85g castor sugar
500g (2 tubs) creamed cottage cheese

Method

  1. Lightly grease the sides of a 20cm diameter springform tin and preheat the oven to 150°C.
  2. Roughly break up the biscuits and process in a food processor along with the butter until crumbly but coming together. Press into the base of the tin. 
  3. Melt the chocolate in the microwave (make sure to check it frequently) and stir in the cream.
  4. Whisk the eggs and sugar until thick and pale. Beat in the cottage cheese, fold in the chocolate and cream mixture and pour into the tin.
  5. Bake for one hour and then switch off the oven and leave to cool.
  6. If you want to make an Easter cheesecake like mine, make a little nest of speckled eggs and shaved chocolate curls 🙂

Nomnom!

Happy Easter

I love holidays in every form. And Easter’s great coz easter eggs are brown, and the cross Jesus died on was brown. So thats where that came from.
My mommy just got back from England so I got lots of prezzies 🙂 Including special easter eggs (love the Marks&Spencers bunny packaging). Begged my dad for the chicken, I think the packaging is just so brilliant. Love square animals. And thanks Briony for the baby lindt bunny 🙂 Hope everyone had a rad long weekend xxx
