Method

  1. Break the chocolate into a glass bowl, then put it over a pan of just simmering water to melt, making sure the bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Line a lightly oiled 900g loaf tin with cling film.
  2. Whisk the cheese, cream and sugar together, preferably with electric beaters, then stir into the almost-cool melted white chocolate until well combined.
  3. Stir 50g raspberries with 2 tbsp of the jam. Spoon half the cheese mixture into the loaf tin, then spoon the jammy raspberries down the centre. Top with the rest of the cheese mixture, level the top, then press in the biscuits. Cover and chill for 6 hrs or overnight.
  4. Set aside about 6 strawberries. Halve the rest, then warm in a pan with the remaining jam until soft. Whizz in a food processor or with a hand blender, then rub through a sieve to remove the seeds and make a sauce. Add a drop of water if the sauce is too thick.
  5. To serve, carefully turn the tin onto a plate, lift it away and strip off the cling film. Halve the remaining strawberries, then arrange on top of the cake with the remaining raspberries and blueberries (if using). Pour over a little sauce and serve the rest separately for drizzling over.

Very rich but all the family liked it. I replaced the amaretti biscuits with shortbread fingers. Worked well.

I made this yesterday but replaced the amaretti biscuits with a traditional crushed digestive base and it tasted delicious! Even my boyfriend who usually teases me about my bad cooking said it was one of the best cheesecakes he'd ever tasted!

I cannot find amaretti biscuits in any supermarket. What other biscuit can you use? Please help!!!

Made this for the desert of Christmas Day. Really easy and quick to make and looked very impressive on the table. Very sweet and turns out much larger than the picture makes out.

I just did this for Boxing Day dessert. I used strawberries instead of raspberries as they aren't in season. Also added blackberries and cherries to make it more of a winter cheesecake. And the final change was a traditional cheesecake base of digestives. All changes worked perfectly and it looked amazing. I added a wall of strawberries and cherries to the base as I felt it could do with dressing a little.
Positive comments all round and very easy. Couldn't taste the white chocolate tho? Lovely dessert overall and will make again.

This looked spectacular. I used slightly less cheese and cream as I didn't want to have to buy a 4th tub of Philadelphia! I made this in Dec so used frozen mixed berries and used strained fruit/creme de cassis/sugar for the sauce on top which was lovely. It is a very nice dessert but very expensive, could hardly taste the chocolate so not sure it was worth it. Could use the same form but standard cheesecake ingredients for same effect and taste for half the price I think.

Amazing desert. My hubby hates cheesecake and I love it so thought I'd try this and see if I could sneak it in. He said it was one f his favourite puds. Will make again for sure. I did change the biscuits I used caramel biscuits and next time I thing I will add a layer before the raspberries in the centre but that's just me playing it really is perfect as it is

I've made this a few times now... AWESOME - gets comments every time I made it. I have refined it now and make the following changes -
Leave out the caster sugar - the white chocolate makes it sweet enough.
I also only used raspberries which I sieved to make a coulis (with the jam, hubby hates pips!) which I then added layers of within the cheese mix when placing in my dishes.
I used individual glasses/moulds (you could use silicon muffin cases) as usually I want only 6 portions.... this way you get at least 12 portions and can freeze the extras for the next time. (Or halve the recipe!)
I tried various ways with the amaretti, favouring crumbling a few on the bottom. sinking one whole one into the middle of the cheese mix, and then decorating the top with extra coulis and another sprinkle.

This recipe is AMAZING!! Everyone thought i bought it from the shops, i had to show the tin as evidence!. It looks fantastic, tastes fantastic and people even took it home despite it melting slightly.

I cooked it exactly as recommended. The only difference. i prepared it the night before and I put it in the freezer one hour before serving. It held perfectly.

For anyone in doubt, this needs gelatine, when I turned mine out it took about 5 mins to collapse completed. Tasted delicious, but looked a frightful mess!!

I have made this dessert a few times! I have adjusted the recipe by using a very low fat soft cheese. Substitute cream but the double version and no one can tell that you have lowered the fat content!!

If you do this the cheesecake should be made in few stages do that it is completely chilled!!
