CHeesecake recipe. Warning though, millions of calories!

Here it is, hugely high in cals so be warned.

You must use full fat everything or it won't set.

I line a round plastic container with cling film and cut a circle of parchment to fit in the bottom.

Then: crush one and a half packs of digestive biscuits into crumbs (not too dust like though) and mix with 1 pack of melted butter. Press into base of container on top of the parchment and leave to go cold, refrigerate until very cold indeed.

Basic Mixture: Whisk 300gms of full fat cream cheese (like philly, but most of the supermarkets do their own) with 1/2 tin of condensed whole milk until smooth. Add 1 pint carton of double cream and whisk until just beginning to thicken, don't overdo it, it should 'just' stay on a spoon. Then add the other half of the tin of condensed milk and 150 mls of lemon juice. The lemon juice makes the mixture thicken considerably.

Now, flavourings.
The most popular is lemon, to make this add the grated zest of 2 lemons to the mixture when you add the juice. That's it. Pour/scrape onto the cold base, decorate as you like, or not and chill overnight. Lift it out using the cling film, peel this off and put it onto the flattest plate you can find.

Other flavours I've tried - orange, also nice with bits of orange flesh in it.
Lime, raspberry, ( strawberry tends to go mushy, don't bother,) rum and orange, rum and raisin (100mls of rum with the lemon juice,) elderflower and gooseberry, damson, plum. Passion fruit decorated with chocolate dipped physallis ( great for Valentine's day!) I think it won't set with pineapple, something about the enzymes in it? Never tried, too risky. Dried pineapple might work though.

Just for Katy.........Bailey's!!
Use chocolate covered digestives for this, you'll need 2 packs though as they are smaller and the chocolate melts. Add 100mls of Baileys to the mixture with the lemon juice and decorate as you wish. Sainbury's sell some yummy luxury chocolate sprinkles.

Easy peasy, always works, just remember to use full fat everything.

Now, who wants the cheats Tiramisu recipe? :flirt2:

YUM - I'm doing the Baileys one for Xmas as well and will stir in some white chocolate buttons for added calories!

Bess - what size tin would be good for this recipe? Would a 23 / 24cm round tin would be OK?

EDIT: Doh just remembered that it's not a baked cheese cake so white choc buttons would not be a good idea :). Might drizzle some melted white choc on the top instead as I love love love the Baileys and white choc combo...

Yes, it would be ok, but a bit shallow. Just measured my container and it's 19-20cms wide. On the other hand...each slice would be less cals, but then that's not really what this recipe is all about is it?!

If you do use a tin, make sure it's either teflon coated or well lined, the lemon juice can react with the metal otherwise. I have used loose bottomed tins and they work well. I used the plastic ones - tupperware style- if the cheesecakes needed to be transported though and if they were for customers that was always the case.

If we ever all meet, I'll bring one with me! There'd need to be a lot of us not to do too much damage though! :)

I think Bess needs to bring 4,6800 cheesecakes in that case... remember to hide a 'file' inside mine...
