  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.

I was a little concerned how this was going to look and was worried about the base, but it turned out fantastic.

I made this at the week-end for a friend's party, took Ruthy's advice about transporting it, really good idea. To ensure it was really chilled I put it in the freezer for 3 hours before putting it in coolbag, which worked perfectly. Much praise from friends, it certainly had a large wow factor, and have taken photo for family and friends, and will make again for family next w/e.

Made this and took it to a family BBQ today. Left it in the tin and transported it in a cool bag, then turned it out and topped it with the fruit and sauce when I got there.
Very well received! It looked and tasted gorgeous-every bit was eaten! Will make it again, definitely!

I have made this twice, and both times it was very well received. It looks so impressive when you bring it to the table when it is SOOOOOOOOOOO easy to make.
1st time I couldn't get any amaretti biscuits so used sponge fingers(boudouir fingers I think) which were ok but the 2nd time I'd got the amerrettis and it really made a difference. This will be my favourite summer dessert for many years. Would like to try it with dark chocolate but not sure it would look as spectacular.

Excellent! And so presentable. Nearly all of my guests asked for a second helping. Thanks.

I made this for friends, looked fabulous, next time I would pour more of the strawberry coulis over and serve with Amoretti biscuits on the side, it was delicious, but very rich.

Definitely needs overnight refridgeration. However felt ameretti biscuits were a little soft. Next time, might add the biscuits just before turning out. Nice though.

Absolutely loved this recipe. Easy to follow and loved the fact it used a loaf tin rather than a circle tin, gave it an extra "wow" factor.
Im going to try it again but using milk chocolate.

Thought I'd try this for a bbq with friends and it really turned out to be the most stunning desert. It actually turned out looking exactly like the picture which my deserts never do!! Have made it since and everyone has been impressed. Would thoroughly recommend.

Made this last night - looked exactly as it did in the picture. Totally delicious. I might do without the strawberry sauce the next time - the fruit on top would have been fine and a nice fresh contract to the richness of the cheesecake mixture. Will make again.

Superb! Easy, delicious and impressive. The sauce was very good and I found I could easily skip using the blender/processor as the berries were soft enough to pulp through a sieve with a wooden spoon.

had to make this at the last minute, but put it in the freezer for 2 or 3 hours and it came out perfectly. really easy, delicious flavours and looked fab. had to use biscotti for the base as no amaretti biscuits available - were much too crunchy and had to be picked up and used as a scoop for the toppping (not an unpleasant experience, but will definitely try to get the right ones next time).

I have already made this twice this summer. Everyone raved about it and the presentation is awesome.

I'd give this six stars if we could!! Turned out just as the picture - got rave comments from my family with the recipe passed on. Would also make nice individual desserts in glasses just put the biscuits in first. One to definitely make again - really easy.

Had this in the week and it was lovely, will definelity make it again.

Delicious! I've made it twice now. The scond time I used crushed ginger biscuits, mixed with melted butter to form the base and it was much nicer, as I'm not a fan of amaretti biscuits.

anitasealey's picture

I made this a couple of weeks ago and all my family really liked it, but weren't too keen on the amaretti biscuits. When I make this again I am going to try different sorts of biscuits just to see if they make a difference. Probably also try milk or dark chocolate too! I chilled the dessert for at least 6 hours but do think overnight chilling would have been better!

carlmarsh's picture

Oh, by the way, I think the amaretti biscuits ARE an important element - any substitutes we've tried just don't quite do it.

I don't usually do desserts, and my wife doesn't usually do cheesecake, but this is definitely the hit of this summer! It's very quick and easy to make (though I agree with Sarah that it's better chilled overnight). My wife's made it four or five times now and it's always wildly popular (and everyone wants the recipe). I think I'll also try Jennie Lee's suggestion for a dark chocolate version, just for a change.
