Method

  1. Crush the biscuits roughly. You can either do this by putting them in a plastic food bag and crushing them with a wooden spoon or you can crumble them with your fingers.

  2. Put the biscuits into a bowl and mix in the melted butter. Put the mixture into a 23cm cheesecake tin and, using your fingers or the back of a spoon to spread it evenly, press it down in the tin to form the base. Put the tin into the fridge to set. This should take about 30 mins.

  3. Put the curd or cream cheese, orange zest, mascarpone, sugar and milk into a bowl and mix it well with the wooden spoon.

  4. Put the cream in a clean bowl and whisk until it is the consistency of thick custard. Add to the orange mixture and mix thoroughly.

  5. Remove the cheesecake tin from the fridge. Pour the filling over the biscuit base and spread evenly. Decorate with segments of orange and return to the fridge until ready to serve (at least 4 hours or overnight).

My 9 year old daughter made this by herself for the family for dinner and it was delicious. She over whipped the cream the first time so she had to do that bit again, adding in a bit more mascarpone and cream cheese as we didn't have quite enough double cream and it turned out perfectly light and moussy in texture . She used 2 very large oranges and it was orangey enough . A hit and it gave her confidence I think !

I love this recipe never fails and always pleases, the recipe is soon versatile with some imagination shortbread and Bailey's, vanilla with tinned fruit and quick set jelly on top, use chocolate biscuits vanilla cheesecake with grated/small chunks of chocolate or mix digestive and ginger snaps for a bit of change .a favourite is also drop the Orange add vanilla essence and vanilla seeds/ scrapped pod

I've just made this with a lemon instead of the orange.1 was enough (zest) for a very citrusy taste..so I added the juice of the lemon,gradually to avoid the mixture curdling.I am now waiting...One comment I read says one youngster substituted melted chocolate for the butter.Now that sounds an excellent idea!

Made this for a dinner party- absolutely delicious, extremely creamy & everyone loved it!.It was easy to make although it softened very quickly when it came out of the fridge but it didn't make much of a difference. I made it just as the recipe said. I would definitely make this again.

I have never been a fan of cheesecake but I made this one for Christmas and I am converted. It was amazing! The only thing I did differently was used chocolate digestives instead of normal and the base was delicious. It was so easy to make and my Dad (who loves cheesecake) said it was the best he ever had. I would definitely recommend this recipe.

I had the same problem as a few previous reviewers, my cheesecake didn't set even though I left it to set overnight. Next day when I took off the side of the tin the creamy filling just flopped down the sides. It did taste delicious but if anyone can tell me what I'm doing wrong I would really appreciate it please. I whipped the double cream until it was v thick do don't think that was the prob. Any suggestions.....

Instead of curd can I use yoghurt

Hi there, we would suggest using cream cheese instead of curd if you want to substitute. Yogurt has a different consistency and will make the cheesecake too runny.
