Not the most attractive from above, I'll admit, but it tastes soooo good.
I found the recipe on the BBC Good Food website and was immediately overwhelmed by the ingredients list. The amount of ingredients was over excessive, if I'm honest, 600g of cream cheese, 300g of white choc, sour cream, eggs and flour among other things. This meant that each slice had a huge 887 calories per slice (according to the recipe anyways) and this put me off somewhat.
Surprisingly, this cheesecake also lasted well in the fridge, despite its delicate dairy ingredients so I'd say it could be made in preparation a day or so before. As I sit here writing this, we have had half the cheesecake sitting in fridge for a week as there was just so much of it. Maybe next time I'll half the mixture and make two cheesecakes, I can't see why this wouldn't work.
To be honest, the amount of calories and the richness has put me off the recipe all together. Despite this, the cheesecake was delicious, especially the biscuit base which was made from a shortbread mixture. This was delicate and was balanced well by other flavours within the cheesecake.
If you do try this recipe, I suggest you put the tin on a baking tray as mine had a liquid leaking out of it throughout cooking and cooling which I think may have come from the cream cheese.
All in all, a very tasty recipe but definitely a no go for those who like to watch their weight!! To try this recipe, go here :)
