A delicious basic cheesecake recipe that is sure to become a fixture in your baking repertoire. Top this cheesecake with chocolate, fresh berries, lemon curd or whatever you can imagine!
This light and luscious cake is reminiscent of what you find it the best European bakeries, and tastes incredible. It requires some time as the cake must be chilled well before slicing.
I had never baked a cheesecake before this; only ever whacked together some cream cheese and mascarpone and put it on top of a biscuit base - and the conclusion is it really tastes much better if you make it from scratch. This cheesecake tastes divine! I made a raspberry coulis and created a marble effect on the top and the outcome was fab. It didn't really sink that much in the middle which was brilliant as well!
This ricotta cheesecake is similar in style to other cheesecakes, but it is much lighter. Hope you enjoy!
Healthy savoury muffin that tastes great. Wholemeal flour and oats add nuttiness and flavour, and a pinch of chilli powder adds a bite.
This recipe was passed down to me from my mum. It produces a rich, chocolaty cheesecake perfect for all cheesecake and chocolate lovers alike! Taste a little to ensure that the right amount of chocolate-ness has been reached. If you like cheesecakes a little more chocolaty then you may need to add a little more cocoa powder/water mix to taste.
Sinfully rich and velvety smooth, this elegant recipe becomes a favourite as soon as it is tasted. It is best if made a day before serving.
A delicious tangy dessert if you like lime. Key limes are smaller and more bitter than regular limes. However, if you can't find key limes, use the same amount of zest and juice from normal limes. The taste won't be identical but close enough.
Cheesecakes have always been a firm favourite of mine to finish an evening spent wining and dining with friends, or a bit of self indulgence when you're alone. This particular one, subtle in richness but huge on flavour, goes down well with everyone. It's served with a lemon orange compote and crème anglaise.
