  • 12-14 digestive biscuits (crumbled)
  • 120grams butter (softened)
  • tubs light cream cheese (you need 600grams)
  • 300 grams white granulated sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 6 egg whites
  • 250ml single cream


    1. Crumble the digestives and mix with the softened butter, line the bottom of a springform flan tin (silicone cake dishes work well as the cheesecake is removed easily from them), put in fridge
    2. Mix together, cream cheese, egg yolks, sugar and cream until you have a thick smooth creamy mixture.
    3. Beat egg whites until firm and fold in cream cheese mix.
    4. Pour mixture over the biscuit crumb base.
    5. Bake at 150C/gas 5 for one hour or until top is lightly browned. Remove from oven and let cool for 8 hours (cracks on top of cheesecake are characteristic of this recipe)
    6. Remove from dish you have baked it in. This luxurious plain cheesecake can be topped with whatever fruit topping you like or left plain. It is very rich.

Have made this several times now and it's always turned out great. Tastes fantastic. Have taken to adding seeds from half a vanilla pod for some added flavouring.

I have tried this recipe again and a couple of tips come to mind. Make sure the biscuit base is solid before adding filling and do not whip up the agg whites too much (they should just be stiffening when added to the mixture) it becomes too mousse like if you whip them into peaks.
