Chocolate chip cheesecake


Serves 12-14 | Prep 20 mins plus chilling | Cook 1 hr 5-15 mins | Calories 584 (per serving)


225g (8oz) gluten-free digestive biscuits, crushed 80g (3oz) unsalted butter, melted 2 tbsp soft brown sugar 150g (5½oz) white chocolate, chopped 675g (1lb 6oz) cream cheese 300g (10½oz) caster sugar 4 large free-range eggs 3 tbsp cornflour 1 tbsp vanilla extract a pinch of salt 120g (4oz) sour cream 250g (9oz) chocolate chips, or chunks icing sugar, to serve

1 Combine the crushed biscuits, melted butter and brown sugar in a food processor. Pulse several times until finely ground.

2 Pack the mixture into the base and sides of a 20cm (8in) springform cake tin. Chill until needed.

3 Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a half-filled saucepan of simmering water, stirring from time to time. Set offthe heat to cool.

4 Beat the cream cheese in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy, 2 minutes.

5 Add the sugar and beat for a further 2 minutes until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one by one, then add the cornflour, vanilla extract and salt, beating until incorporated.

6 Finish by folding in the melted white chocolate, then the sour cream, to make an even batter. Stir in about two-thirds of the chocolate chips (or chunks).

7 Spoon the batter into the prepared tin on top of the biscuit base. Gently tap the tin on a flat surface to help settle the batter.

8 Bake for about 1 hour 5-15 minutes until the top is set and dry to the touch on top. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Once cool, cover and chill overnight.

9 To serve: When ready to serve, turn out the cheesecake from its tin onto a serving plate.

10 Place the remaining chocolate chips in a small heatproof bowl and melt in the microwave, cooking on high in 10-seconds bursts, stirring in-between.

11 Spoon over the cheesecake and lightly dust with icing sugar before slicing and serving.
