Method
1.
Preheat the oven to 90°C
2.
For the cheesecake, whisk together the cream cheese, milk and double cream until smooth. Set aside
3.
Whisk the eggs and sugar together until smooth. Allow to settle, skimming off the foamy mixture that floats to the top
4.
Combine the whisked eggs and sugar with the cream cheese mixture. Pass through a sieve and set aside
5.
Pour into a 28cm x 13cm x 7cm container and cook in a bain marie for 1 hour until just set and firm on top. Remove and allow to cool before refrigerating
Making a bain-marie for the oven
If you don't have a bain-marie, you can make one. Preheat the oven to 180°C and fill a roasting tin to halfway with water, before placing the cappuccino cup in the water and the roasting tin in the oven
6.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Heat the honey in a pan until boiling then whisk in the butter
7.
Brush the bread liberally with the honey butter and place the slices onto a non-stick baking tray
8.
Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes until caramelised. Remove from the tray and set aside to cool. It should turn crispy when completely cool
9.
Hull and quarter the four reserved strawberries and set aside in the fridge. Hull and roughly chop the rest of the strawberries and set aside in a bowl
10.
Melt the sugar in a pan until soft-ball (112°C). Add the chopped strawberries and cook until stewed and soft
11.
Sprinkle in the pectin and stir until dissolved, then transfer the mixture to a liquidizer and blitz until smooth. Transfer to a squeezy bottle and set aside
12.
Swipe a spoonful of cheesecake onto the caramelised bread. Pipe 3 dots of strawberry purée on top of the cheesecake and finish with the strawberry quarters
