Cherry cheesecake recipe details
|For the Base:|
|50 g||unsalted butter, melted|
|150 g||shortbread biscuits, crushed fine|
|1 tbsp||golden syrup|
|For the Filling:|
|200 g||fresh cherries, washed and pitted|
|225 g||caster sugar|
|500 g||cream cheese|
|1 tsp||vanilla extract|
|1 medium||orange, zest only|
|200 ml||crème fraîche|
|For the topping:|
|150 g||fresh cherries, washed|
|icing sugar, for decoration|
InstructionsHeat oven to Gas Mark 3, 170°C, 325°F. Butter a loose-based 8-inch, 20cm cake tin and line the bottom with parchment.
Melt the butter with the syrup in a small pan. Mix in the biscuit crumbs until evenly coated. Press into the base of the tin and bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool. Lower the oven to Gas Mark 2, 150°C, 300°F.
Process the cherries with about a third of the sugar in a food processor until smooth. Check sweetness and add another teaspoon or two of the sugar if needed. Pour into a pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 5 minutes until it forms a thick syrup. Cool the pan in cold water.
Rinse out the food processor bowl and blade and add the cheese, cornflour, remaining sugar, vanilla, zest and half the creme fraiche. Blend until smooth. Pour about half of the mixture into the tin and pour about half of the cherry syrup evenly over the top. Carefully spoon the remaining cheese filling on top. Use a skewer to swirl the cheese and cherry layers.
Bake for 45 minutes, turn off the oven and leave the cake in the oven with the door closed for 30 minutes.
Spread the remaining creme fraiche over the top of the cake and spoon the remaining cherry syrup in the middle.
Using a fine skewer, draw out streaks of the syrup from the centre out. Clean off the skewer and repeat in a pattern around the cake. Arrange remaining whole cherries around the edge and dust with icing sugar. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
