    Once available in Britain for just a brief period during the summer, strawberries are now a year…

  • 300g tub full-fat soft cheese
  • 200ml double cream

Method

  1. Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to fine crumbs, add the melted butter and mix well. Tip the mix into a 20cm lined, loose-bottomed cake tin, smooth with the back of a spoon and put in the fridge for 30 mins.

  2. Melt 375g of the chocolate in a microwave or glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water, then allow to cool slightly.

  3. Take out 6 nice-looking strawberries and set aside. Blitz the remaining strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then add them to a bowl with the soft cheese and cream. Beat until really smooth and thick, then stir in the melted white chocolate. Pour on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top. Place in the fridge and chill overnight.

  4. Halve the reserved strawberries and place on top of the cheesecake. Melt the remaining 25g chocolate and drizzle over the top, then keep chilled until ready to serve.

No! Chuck it all in together, takes a good 5-10 mins to get thick!

I've just made this for the second time but using raspberries instead and it was even better than the first time. Again, I used the full 400g in the filling (sieved and added a little icing sugar as I used frozen raspberries and they'd lost quite a lot of their sweetness) and used fresh for decoration. Would give 6 stars if I could!

Further to my comment above, I made another and froze it which we had the other night - I didn't think it froze particularly well. It came out a bit soggy and the tezture wasn't as good so I will always make it fresh in the future (still tasted good though :-)

Delicious! The only change I made was adding the full 400g strawberries to the mousse (sieved) and bought extra for decoration. Made it the day before and it set beautifully. I forgot to line the tin but luckily it didn't matter.

Really gorgeous cheesecake and I can't believe how easy it was. Used electric whisk to get everything smooth although didn't bother sieving the strawberries and I don't think it needed it. I used 200g of white chocolate as that was all I had - I'm glad I didn't put any more in as I think the flavour would have overpowered the lovely delicate strawberries. I did add a tbsp of icing sugar though. I left it to set overnight and the texture was perfect - set enough that it didn't fall apart when I unmoulded it but lovely, soft and indeed, mousse like! Will be making more of these to put in the freezer for later in the year.

I made a similar recipe a few times, but I lined the outer edge of the pan with parchment paper & then took a slice out of the middle of a bunch of strawberries & lined the outer edge of the tin with them (points up) before pouring in the cheese mixture & it looked amazing... you'd need extra strawberries for that though!!

Absolutely superb! Whipped ingredients separately before mixing together and sieved strawberries as recommended by other reviewers. Looked and tasted wonderful.
