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.

  • This recipe is amazing! It was easy to follow, easy to execute. I have a 9 x 3 in. springform so I used 1 1/2 recipes and it turned out perfectly. I also couldn't find "gingernut" cookies so I substituted Anna's Ginger Thins with great success. Thank you for a wonderful summer (and anytime, really) dessert that I will make over and over.

  • So delicious, was definitely a crowd pleaser! The only thing is I used a 9-inch tin instead of an 8-inch so my crust was not as a thick, it looked like a a very skinny cheesecake but still delicious!

  • I simply love this recipe. Living in France to get cream cheese so difficult and came accross mascarpone cheese. So I used this and followed it step by step. Superb indeed Nigella. Great simple and fast good for me when I am always on the go and time is important. Thanks Nigella. PS The French adored it and asked where did I get the recipie. So I hope you do not mind you will have many following you soon.

  • I like using good white chocolate - but that solidifes at about 80F, so waiting for everything to be at room temperature before folding the cream cheese and the chocolate together doesn't work well for me (the cheesecake filling sets up immediately). Instead mix the white chocolate with warm cream to make a white ganache, and then fold that mixture into the cream cheese?

  • The trick to remove cakes like this from the tin is to put a cake board the same size as the tin base before pressing the cookie base. When you unclip the tin sides, the cake is easily removed and placed in serving platter with the cake board.

  • I'm going to add tiny pieces of crystallised ginger.... That will be incredible. A work colleague brought a couple of slices in of the plain one and I was blown away with how creamy it is.

  • OH MY GOD THIS IS HEAVEN IN MY MOUTH! I ended up adding 3 or 4 (or 5...) times the lemon juice to make it a lemon white choc cake and it was insanely satisfying. Pure bliss

  • 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 :)
