It was the boys birthday on Monday and as is tradition I made him a cake. I like baking or at least attempting to as I think its much more personal even if it does end you costing me more then actually buying one.
This year the boy who isn't on the same wave length as me usually when it comes to cake asked for a chocolate cheese cake, so I was more then happy to oblige.
I got the recipe from the BBC website and is from Gina Brooks as a White and Milk Chocolate Cheesecake but I changed it just to use milk chocolate. Here's the link to the original recipe.
Warning: This Cheese Cake is ridiculously chocolatey!!
This is what you need
12 Chocolate Digestive Biscuits
50g of Butter
1 tbsp Honey
500g of Mascarpone cheese
1 tbsp of icing sugar
300g of Milk Chocolate
Extra Chocolate for topping
Step One: Brake the biscuits into small crumbs, the best way to do this is to but them into a zip lock bag and bash them with a rolling pin.
|Only 12 Biscuits!|
Step Three: Place the biscuit mixture into a round 7in chefs tin pressing down with the back of a spoon to make sure its firm. Place in fridge for a good half an hour.
Step Four: Melt the chocolate in the usual way with a glass bowl over boiling water being careful not to let the glass touch the water.
Step Five: Add the melted chocolate to a mixing bowl with the Mascarpone cheese and Icing Sugar mixing well until the mixture becomes creamy smooth. I'm not going to lie to you I got the boy to mix this for me as god it was hard work so be prepared to use them muscles.
Step Six: Add the chocolate mixture to the biscuit base covering well and evenly. For the extra chocolate for the top I used a vegetable peeler to add in curls all over. Next put back in the fridge for a good few hours.
Step Seven: Serve and enjoy! Add a little ice cream on the side and if your feeling very chocolatey a little bit of sauce.
Please let me know if you try my version of this recipe and what you think as even I struggled with how chocolatey it is.
