White Chocolate Cheesecake

by . Featured in AT MY TABLE

Introduction

The white chocolate is only a delicate presence here. It brings a gorgeous, rounded vanilla flavour and helps the cheesecake set in the fridge overnight to a perfect, tenderly firm consistency. And while I love this pale, plain and unadorned, it can be beautifully partyfied by a sprinkling of chopped pistachios and a jewel-bright scattering of pomegranate seeds.

  • I tried this cheesecake after seeing the series on BBC recently and it is wonderful. I didn't top it with anything as I felt it didn't need it, and it came out velvety smooth with a wonderful taste and texture. The addition of the lemon juice just gives it that slight tang so that its not overly sweet. Luscious!

  • Easy peasy recipe! Deliciously light! Served with side portion of strawberries turned into one of your 5 a day! Melting chocolate I used microwave for few seconds and then stirred to fully melt! Will use again and again!

  • Nigella, another stunning recipe thank you! It's quick and easy and absolutely delicious. My friends and family raved about it. It will therefore be another recipe added to my list of Nigella scrummies :)

  • This is divine. Such an easy recipe with no cooking. Everyone raved about this. Very rich and chocolaty. Also used the filling in between 2 layers of pistachio meringue. Stunning!

  • I have a tea room in the Cotswolds and love watching nigella on TV. Have tried the white chocolate cheesecake twice and love it, the texture is silky smooth and have put on pistachios on one and toasted almonds on the other -both great! Also convenient to make and impressive. Thanks

  • If, like me, your chocolate started to set as you tipped it into the soft, but too cold cream cheese, don't panic! Stir it in as well as you can, then pop into the microwave for 10 second blasts, stirring between each blast...mine took 40 secs. in total, to go back to divine smoothness!!

  • We ate this with mixed berries which were quite tart, and went with it very well. It is quite creamy, so the lemon juice is essential, and maybe even the zest would be good, or clementine juice for a change. It was a lovely dessert to follow the butternut squash pasta.

  • Amazing. Just made this for a dinner party with friends and it is a winner. Lovely flavour and much lighter and fuller-flavoured than you might think. Thanks Nigella!

  • This is my new go-to dessert recipe! It tastes amazing and is so easy to make. I have been serving it with a slightly sharp raspberry sauce though it is lovely on its own too.

  • Fantastic taste and texture! Didn't have gingernut biscuits so used regular Digestives and a couple of tsp of powdered ginger. Took some liberties with portioning- build small 'cakes' in 7 ramekins for easy keeping and serving. Works well!
