Nigella Cheesecake

Cupcake camp is fast approaching so I guess I should be practicing cupcakes at the moment but today I wanted to try something different. I found a recipe in Nigella Express for cherry cheesecake which looked great. We had strawberries in the fridge to use up though so I adapted it slightly. It was simple to make and it tastes so good. It's not too sweet but not sour at all either. And not too filling! Maybe I will have another slice...


125g digestive biscuits
75g soft butter
300g cream cheese
60g icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
250ml double cream
1 jar strawberry conserve
Strawberries to decorate
Serving Size : Serves 6–8


1.Blitz the biscuits in a food processor until beginning to turn to crumbs, then add the butter and whiz again to make the mixture clump.
2.Press this mixture into a 20cm springform tin; press a little up the sides to form a slight ridge.
3.Beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice in a bowl until smooth.
4.Lightly whip the double cream, and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
5.Spoon the cheesecake filling on top of the biscuit base and smooth with a spatula. Put it in the fridge for 3 hours or overnight.
6.When you are ready to serve the cheesecake, unmould it and spread the black cherry over the top.

I left the lemon juice out since we didn't have any lemons but it's fine without it! And I used whipping cream because the shop had no double cream and that worked too. Yum!
