I love food, I love cooking, I love baking!!! There is just something about the smell of freshly baking cookies and cake that seems to call to me every time. It is almost an obsessive need to flow with that scent that lingers in the air and just have it all around you all the time. Baking was something I had grown up around and pretty much forgotten about since awhile. I have had my mum experiment with so many different cakes and dishes which made me want to try some for myself.
1.Crush the biscuits with a rolling pin to fine crumbs, add the melted
butter and mix well. Tip the mix into a 20cm lined, loose-bottomed cake tin,
smooth with the back of a spoon and put in the fridge for 30 mins.
2.Melt 375g of the chocolate in a microwave or glass bowl set over a pan
of simmering water, then allow to cool slightly.
3.Take out 6 nice-looking strawberries and set aside. Blitz the remaining
strawberries in a food processor until smooth, then add them to a bowl with the
soft cheese and cream. Beat until really smooth and thick, then stir in the
melted white chocolate. Pour on top of the biscuit base and smooth the top.
Place in the fridge and chill overnight.
4.Halve the reserved strawberries and place on top of the cheesecake. Melt
the remaining 25g chocolate and drizzle over the top, then keep chilled until
ready to serve.
