Light Philadelphia with Cadbury milk chocolate – Chocolate Philadelphia
I knew I’d like the new chocolate Philadelphia before I tried it as I absolutely LOVE chocolate cheesecake – and yep, that’s pretty much what it tastes like.
So, this week I got out my trusty blender and made a chocolate cheesecake which is, if I do say so myself, abso-flippin-lutely gorgeous! It’s also vegetarian – no gelatine needed.
Here’s how to make it…
- 100g digestive biscuit
- 35g unsalted butter
- 100ml double cream
- 480g chocolate Philadelphia
- 2 tsp sugar (1tsp for the biscuit, 1tsp for the filling)
- 2 well beaten eggs
- 20g plain flour
- Icing sugar for dusting, if desired
- Set the oven to Gas Mark 6 (200C)
- Whiz up the biscuits with the sugar until sandy
- Pour in the melted butter while still whizzing
- Empty the mixture into a large, round, spring form tin
- Press down with the back of a spoon til even and firm
- Cook in the oven for just 5 minutes
- Take it out the oven and set it aside
- Turn the oven down to Gas Mark 3 (170C)
- Put the chocolate Philadelphia and sugar into the blender and start whizzing at full speed
- While still whizzing, pour in the eggs bit by bit, then add the flour and cream
- Blend until it’s lump-free
- Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base and bake in the oven for 45 minutes to an hour until it’s well-cooked at the edges and firm but slightly wobbly in the middle
- Turn off the oven and leave the door ajar for another 45 minutes to an hour
- Take out the oven, run a knife round the edges and chill in the fridge for and hour (or as long as you can stand to wait
The result is a rich (but not too rich) chocolate cheesecake with a thin base, cakey edges and an almost fudgy middle. Truly yummy.
You can serve it a few ways. I like it plain with a glass of wine, or you might like it with a coffee or even dusted with icing sugar and served with lightly whipped double cream and raspberry sauce (made by heating one part water with one part seedless raspberry jam).
