  • 2 x 150g bars white chocolate

    Chocolate ganache


    Chocolate ganache is a combination of chocolate and double cream. It's simple to…

  • 2 x 300g tubs soft cheese (we used Philadelphia)
  • 284ml pot double cream
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 170g punnet raspberries



    A member of the rose family, raspberries have a wonderfully intense, sweet taste, and many…

  • 5 tbsp raspberry jam
  • 85g amaretti biscuits
  • 200g small strawberries



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

  • a few blueberries (optional)



    Blueberries are one of the few edibles native to North America and credited with being…


  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.

Easy to make and so delicious, I have made this several times and each time it's been a hit with everyone.

Fabulous dessert. Easy to make - best made the day before your event to be sure to set. Looks amazing and delicious & is! Have made this probably about 80 times over the last 10 years! It's my teenager children's favourite pudding of all ... so much so it virtually comes up on my computer (as I spend my life exploring recipes on the BBC Good Food website - thank you to all the contributors!) if I put in berry and chocolate immediately! We had it yet again yesterday for our Easter Sunday 2020 lunch and still love it and did not have to share it out as no visitors due to the conoravirus pandemic! I now do not add any sugar at all as it is as previous reviewers said very rich. I put the mixture into a long narrow tin as then I can get lots of narrow slices to give lots of guests a taste especially if I make other desserts as lots of people like a little taste of everything. I serve it for about 12. Also, I tend to use a whole 350g of thawed frozen raspberries for the filling and coulis along with the jam & strawberries and serve it with more berries. It is perfect for travelling too, as you can turn it out at the destination and just have the coulis in a pot and the berries prepared. Have served it for work lunches and pot luck suppers. I feel its better than 10/10 ... it's a 11/10! Pays though not to have a heavy main course beforehand! Perfect all year and makes everyone happy!

Superb dessert. Looks spectacular and is absolutely delicious. I was a bit concerned the amaretti biscuits and white chocolate would make it too sweet, so I doubled the quantities for the raspberry filling and the fruit coulis (I used frozen raspberries for that), and also served it with a lot of fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. The result was a fabulous balance between the sweetness of the cheesecake and the tanginess of the fruit (especially the coulis). The quantities given in the recipe are far more than are actually needed for a 900g loaf tin, though. You could easily reduce them by a third and still have plenty. And I only used half the amount of sugar stated, and it was still plenty sweet enough.

Not tried this recipe yet. But I don't like white chocolate. Could I use dark chocolate and if so would I have to make any adjustments to the ingredients. thinking of making it for Christmas day dessert and also think white chocolate would be too rich. Thanks in advance for any advice.

A lovely recipe - it has worked well both times I have made it. I’ve been asked for the recipe and one friend didn’t believe I had made it because it looked so good! Both times I have used 400g of white chocolate, which gave a good flavour and a good set. It definitely needs plenty of fruit and coulis with it to take away the sweetness. I also added a cheeky splash of raspberry gin to the sauce!

This is delicious and an impressive centerpiece to end a special dinner. I had filling left over so made two additional mini versions in pudding tins and froze them. They freeze very well and look splendid as individual portions.

This was very easy to make. I made the cheesecake itself the night before and prepared the fruit and sauce the next morning. It turned out of the tin beautifully and looked very professional when decorated. It was lovely served with a fruit salad of extra strawberries, raspberries and blueberries just to take away some of the sweetness. My guests loved it and I will definitely make it again.

We made this with a traditional base in a round tin rather than the loaf tin as we wanted a slighter larger cheesecake. The flavour is amazing - we also had a few chunks of white chocolate in the cheese mix to make it a bit more interesting. Will definitely make again on an occasion

Is it ok to make this on a Wednesday and freeze without the biscuits, to eat on a Saturday? How long would it need to be out of the freezer for? Thanks

I decided to make this as my contribution for a work lunch. Brave step as I have never attempted cheesecake before. It was easy to make, ideal for transporting as encased in loaf tin, looked exactly like the picture and went down a storm! Great feedback from my colleagues, I will definately make this again.

ive made this twice but same thing happened both times, am I doing something wrong? I melt the chocolate and leave to go cool/ cold. As soon as i add to the cheese and cream mix the chocolate goes hard straightaway leaving small lumps through out the mixture. it still tastes lovely but i think it should be smooth ?

We're sorry to hear you've been having problems when adding the chocolate. A few tips that may help are to make sure the chocolate isn't over-heated, so once it starts to melt, take it away from the heat and stir to finish melting from the residual heat. Also if you take the cream and soft cheese out of the fridge for 15 mins or so before using and then combine with the sugar before adding in the chocolate. Continue beating as you add the chocolate in a slow steady stream. Good luck!

Rachael Rickard 16th Dec, 2017 Report Hello, I am planning to make this in advance and freeze this cheesecake. Please can you tell me if it's possible to make the sauce in advance to take with me to assemble at a party? Thanks

Thanks for your question. We would suggest making both of these the day before and chilling in the fridge overnight for best results.

This recipe seems to put the biscuit on top and flipping it once it's set but was wondering whether it can be done in a springform cake tin with a crushed biscuit base. Also was wondering since the cheesecake can be flipped does that mean the cheese part is a lot harder than regular cheese cakes?

Thanks for your question. You could do this in a springform tin but it may be harder to transfer to a plate for serving. The topping is firm but we wouldn't say it's a lot harder than regular cheesecakes.

Can this be frozen before final decoration?

Thanks for your email, yes you could freeze the cheesecake before the decoration for up to one week.

Help! I'miss about to make this and I've realised that my loaf tin is too small. Can I use a round cake tin or a spring form tin, instead? Thank you

Hi I forgot to include the cream will it still be ok?

I'd recommend doing two layers of raspberries instead of one. You can even sneak in a few more raspberries this way... otherwise I find it gets a bit too rich and sickly
15th Jan, 2016
Brilliant Recipe - Don't add more than needed in the middle - and don't spread raspberry mixture too close to the edges because it splits in half and doesn't set properly.

If you want a firmer cheesecake, whip the cream to a soft consistency before whipping in the cheese and sugar

Absolutely delicious! In my first attempt the biscuits became very soft and disappeared into the cheesecake. If you want the crunch add them just before serving.
