Method

  1. Whizz together the biscuits or crush in a sealed bag until you get fine crumbs. Gently melt the butter, then mix into the crumbs. Press evenly into a 20cm loosebottomed round cake tin. Chill in the fridge while you make the filling.

  2. Put the remaining ingredients into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Spread over the base, then smooth the top with a knife. Leave in the fridge overnight to set. Remove the cake from the tin and top with roasted rhubarb (recipe, below) or your choice of fruit.

This was delicious, very easy to make and not too rich. You must make it the day before though, to get the topping to set. I thought the topping could have been a little deeper, so I might increase the quantities by 1.5 next time

I made this for Halloween topped with frozen mixed fruits of the forest, it was yummy and so easy to make. Might use a bit of greaseproof next time I make it so it is easier to get out of the tin.

The best cheesecake I've ever made! Not too sweet, with great flavour from the ginger and the slight tang of rhubarb. The yoghurt stops the cheese from being overly creamy. This was a hit with all the family, kids and adults alike! I topped mine with a rhubarb & ginger jam I had made weeks earlier, as that was what I had to hand and it worked very well, without needing lots.
I will be making this again sometime this week; can't wait! :)

jzl - I used morrisons soft cheese and it worked fine. To ensure I could get the base off I lined the base with a circle of greaseproof paper, this worked very well.

All my work colleagues loved it!!

Very tasty. My topping was liquid when added to the base (no need to smooth over as the recipe said!) but firmed overnight in the fridge. Used Morrison's soft cheese but would try Philadelphia next time to see if that helps. Found it difficult to get the cheesecake off the base of the tin so presentation was not as good as it might have been. Was quite gingery but went well with the rhubarb (which I had to give an extra 5 mins and an extra tbsp of sugar).Family were impressed by what is an easy recipe.

Has anyone tried freezing this? Would appreciate any advice.

goodfoodteam's picture

Hi Sara wynne, thanks for your question. Because this recipe contains yogurt it's possible that freezing it would cause the texture of the filling to become grainy when defrosted. If you're looking for a similar dessert which is freezable you could try this lime semifreddo cheesecake http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/lime-semifreddo-cheesecake hope this helps.
