Double Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake

IMG_0626

I confess I had cheated a little by posting this on a baking blog. This does NOT require any baking. It is completely vegetarian (but NOT vegan) friendly too!

  • 150g digestive biscuits
  • 60g unsalted butter
  • 400g cream cheese
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 100g dark chocolate (70% coco content) + a 15-20g extra for decoration
  • 70g white chocolate
  • 280ml double cream
  • 250g strawberries
  1. Line a 21cm springform round baking tin with parchment paper (see video)
  2. Crush the digestive biscuits completely (either use a blender, or put the biscuits in a clean sealable plastic bag and beat it with a rolling pin, or whatever method you can think of to crush them)
  3. Put the crushed biscuits in a mixing bowl
  4. Melt the butter in a saucepan or microwave
  5. Pour the melted butter onto the crushed digestive biscuits
  6. Mix with a metal spoon
  7. Put the biscuits over the bottom of the baking tin, press it down with your hand or spoon so it is firmly at the bottom
  8. Whisk the double until it is thick and forms stiff peaks
  9. Add icing sugar to half of the whipped cream and gently mix it together
  10. Melt the dark chocolate in microwave (low power, or you will burn it), set it aside to cool, but not too long, because it will harden
  11. Mix cream with sugar, 200g cream cheese and the melted dark chocolate together with a metal spoon until smooth
  12. Pour the chocolate cream cheese mix over the digestive biscuits
  13. Wash the strawberries and drain the excessive moisture
  14. Slice the strawberries longitudinally and place the strawberries with the inside facing outward as shown in the picture above
  15. If you have left over strawberries, slice it up and layer them on the dark chocolate cream cheese filling
  16. Melt the white chocolate and let it cool down on the side
  17. Mix the rest of the cream cheese, whipped cream and white chocolate together
  18. Layer the white chocolate cream cheese filling on top of the dark chocolate filling
  19. Put the whole cake in the fridge for at least 3 hours
  20. Take the cake out and carefully peel away the baking parchment
  21. Melt the leftover dark chocolate in the microwave (on low power again), allow it to cool down
  22. Drizzle the dark chocolate over the top of the white chocolate filling to finish the decoration
