This is such an easy, delicious cheesecake. I made it at school in a catering lesson, excuse the bad presentation because it did travel a mile home before ending up on a plate!
You will need:
200g chocolate Bourbons
100g butter (melted)
275g mascapone cheese
175ml double cream
50g caster sugar
2 teaspoons espresso powder dissolved in a tablespoon boiling water
- Crush the biscuits in a polythene bag by bashing with a rolling pin. Alternatively, use a blender.
- Stir in the butter and then press the mixture into a flan dish or sponge tin.
- Whip the cream until thick. Beat the mascapone until soft. Stir the whipped cream into the cheese and gently stir. Fold in the espresso and sugar.
- Spread the mixture over the crumb base and then chill before serving.
