Chocolate Cheesecake 

Tana’s Kitchen Secrets by Tana Ramsay

Serves 8 – 10 | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cooking time: 1 hour

Ingredients

  • 300g packet sweetened oat biscuits
  • 75g butter, melted
  • 150g good-quality dark chocolate, broke into squares
  • 750g mascarpone or cream cheese
  • 125g light brown muscovado sugar
  • 3 free-range eggs, beaten
Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Line a 23c, (9in) non-stick springform tin with greaseproof paper.
  2. Put the biscuits in a food processor and whizz until they are in fine crumbs (or put the in a polythene bag, seal and bash with a rolling pin). Place them in a large bowl, add the butter and stir until they are evenly coated. Transfer to the lined tin and press firmly with the back of a spoon to compress in an even layer over the base. Cover with clingfilm and put in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes, until hardened.
  3. Meanwhile, melt the chocolate. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  4. Put the mascarpone or cream cheese in another mixing bowl and, with the whisk, beat until loose and smooth. Add the sugar and beat again. Gently stir in the cooled chocolate and the eggs, then add this chocolate filling on to the chilled biscuit base.
  5. Gently slide the cheesecake into the oven and bake for 50 – 60 minutes. When it’s ready, it should still have a wobble to the centre if you shake the tin (it will continue to cook as it cools). Allow to cool completely, then refrigerate until ready to serve
