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.

Ive made this cheesecake three times for three different sets of friends and family and each time everyone loves it and goes back for seconds and thirds! It is so easy and quick to make that I'll be making this for years to come. I love it!

FANTASTIC - particularly if you are out to impress with NO effort. I also make IT with plain chocolate for friends who prefer this to white and it works like a dream. Have also used the sauce to accompany things like choc mouse and single meringues.

My daughter made this recipe - it was absolutely divine. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven. The whole family had three helpings!! I dread to think how many calories were in it - but what the hell!

Excellent - very rich - but oh so good! A friend made it using the low fat Philadelphia which was as good but you could tell the difference (my son tasted both!)

This was very easy to make and looked stunning. I was so impressed, I took a photo of my effort and wrote about it on my blog!

Made this a few weeks ago for a family BBQ. Went down a treat! Used Boudoir biscuits soaked in creme de cassis for the base as I didn't have amaretti biscuits. Not a dessert for those who are counting cals but delicious as a treat.

I made this for a dinner party and it was a winner all round. Everyone enjoyed it and went back for seconds, although I would definitely recommend over night chilling.

I made this a few weeks ago and it was absolutely gorgeous!I only had a small loaf tin so I halved the ingredients,apart from the jammy raspberries that go in the centre,I made the same amount as for the big tin and it was just perfect-half of that wouldn't be enough,and the same for the sauce that goes on top,it was realy realy nice.I also didnt have amaretti biscuits so used sponge fingers and it was yummy.my family loved it,will definitely make again!!
