Why not try?

Baked cheesecakes are my ultimate comfort food, welcome at any time of the year. A rich chocolate cheesecake with morello cherries and a slug of kirsch in Winter, a sharp lemon cheesecake with a glass of fizz in Spring, a warm vanilla cheesecake with the first of the Autumn raspberries washed down with an intensely sweet white wine. All are perfect but, at this time of year with the sun blazing down and jewels gleaming at me in my garden, it has to be redcurrant ripple cheesecake and a glass of elderflower cordial with lots of ice!

I use the same basic recipe as the base for all my cheesecakes so, if you feel the urge, you can easily replace the redcurrants with raspberries, blueberries or blackberries or swirl through some chocolate and top with cherries!

Ingredients

Metric

Imperial

1
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4
2
Thoroughly butter the base and sides of a 24cm spring form cake tin
3
Melt the butter in a pan. Meanwhile, whizz the biscuits in a food processor until they become fine crumbs
4
Stir the biscuit crumbs into the butter, pour into the prepared tin and press down firmly with your fingers. Chill for about 30 minutes in the fridge
5
Place the redcurrants into a small pan with 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp water. Heat gently until the redcurrants soften and release their juice
6
Whisk together the eggs, mascarpone cheese, sugar and vanilla extract
7
Pour the cheese mixture onto the biscuit base then drizzle the redcurrant syrup over the top and swirl it around with a cocktail stick
8
Bake in the preheated oven for 40 - 50 mins until it’s just a bit wobbly when you shake it from side to side (if it browns too much place a piece of baking parchment over the top for the last 15 minutes or so)
9
Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin
10
Serve with a sprinkling of sieved icing sugar, a handful of sharp redcurrants and a glass of ice cold elderflower fizz. You can serve it at room temperature or cold from the fridge
