  • 45 g Unsalted butter
  • 150 g Bourbon biscuits
  • 300 g Soft cream cheese
  • 60 g Caster sugar
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 410 g black cherry fruit filling tin
  • 150 g Blackberries
  • 125 g blueberries
  • 1 lime
  • 60 g dark chocolate


Making the black forest topping

  • Place the tinned cherries, blueberries and blackberries in a saucepan. Along with the fresh lime juice.
  • On a low heat allow the mix to reduce down. Keep an eye on the mix and stir regularly.
  • Once the fruit has started mushing down slightly remove from the heat and allow to cool.

The Cheesecake

  • Lightly grease an 6 inch loose base cake tin. (I also added a greaseproof paper circle at the bottom to help it off the base later).
  • Melt the butter gently in the microwave or in a pan and then take off the heat.
  • Crush the bourbon biscuits in a food processor, or put it in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to break them up (my preferred method).
  • Put the biscuit crumbs in a bowl and add the melted butter. Stir until all the biscuits are coated in the butter.
  • Scoop the crumbs into the tin and push down to make a hard layer. Place the cake tin in the fridge and leave to harden while you make the cream layer.
  • In a bowl cream together the cream cheese and caster sugar until the sugar has dissolved and is well distributed.
  • In a new bowl lightly whip the double cream until it starts to thicken.
  • Stir in the double cream and cream cheese mixture together.
  • Remove the cake tin from the fridge and add the cream cheese to the base and put back into the fridge to set. It takes roughly about 45-60 minutes.
  • Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a plate. Spoon the cool cherry mix over the top.
  • Chop the chocolate on the diagonal creating the beautiful flakes. Sprinkle on the cheesecake and serve.
