Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake with Almond Dukkah

I love a good refrigerated cheesecake. There is something about the texture that makes me stop and dream, forget about reality. The cool smooth, silky, velvety sensation caressing my mouth. Then the biscuit base is non-describable as I wish I could keep going back for more but I keep holding myself back. This is a winner for young and old. I hope you enjoy it as much as we all do!

 

INGREDIENTS

METHOD

1. Crumb biscuits in a food processor. Add butter and mix well. (you can half these ingredients if you want a thinner crust)

2. Press into a 20 cm spring-form pan lined with baking paper ( I only lined the bottom and lightly sprayed the sides, it is up to you how perfect you want it to look). Refrigerate for 20 minutes.

3. Sprinkle gelatine into the boiling water. Whisk well to dissolve (I used a fork) and allow to cool.

4. Use an Electric mixer to beat the cream to soft peaks, fold in vanilla extract and set aside.

5. Beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth for a couple of minutes.  Gradually add in gelatine, mix well. Mix in the YIAH Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Chocolate Powder and sifted cocoa.  Fold in the cream until all combined.

6. Lightly spray the sides of the pan again with oil. Place the mixture into the springform pan on top of the set crumbed biscuits. Smooth surface. Cover.

7. Refrigerate for a few hours or preferably overnight before slicing. Once set, add strawberries in the center of the cheesecake and sprinkle with the YIAH Chocolate almond Dukkah or  YIAH Black Forest Dukkah just before serving.
