Our Head Chef, Andre, from The Boat House Bistro at Bewl Water has given us a very special white chocolate cheese cake recipe.
(Warning!! Once you taste it you won’t be able to stop eating it…)
85g Butter melted
175g digestive biscuits (crumbed)
1 tbsp caster sugar
450g cream cheese
125g caster sugar
200g white chocolate (melted)
100ml double cream
1 vanilla pod
Stir all ingredients together and press into the bottom of spring form tin with back of a spoon.
Remove cream cheese from fridge an hour before to let it reach room temperature. Pre heat oven to 150°C, beat cream cheese to soften it. Add the cream, vanilla and beat in eggs. Slowly fold in the melted white chocolate. Pour this over the biscuit base and bake for 25/30 minutes. Turn oven off and leave to sit for 10 minutes. Let cool and then chill for a couple of hours.
