White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake Slice

Seriously, can we please just take a little moment to stop and talk about how damn good cheesecake is. OMG. It’s my biggest weakness ever!!! Whether it’s a no-bake cheesecake, or a luscious baked cheesecake, I am there. And by ‘there’, I really mean that I’m hands-deep gorging myself in the deliciousness.

Which brings me to this latest creation – my white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake slice!!! Actually, that’s a little lie… it’s definitely not a ‘latest creation’. This baby has been making appearances in my kitchen forever. But it IS new to the blog.. so let’s go with that!

White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake SliceSometimes I’ll make this White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake Slice as a traditional cheesecake… you know what I mean? The  whole round-springform-pan-thing. And it’s totally amazing! If you’d rather do that, you can follow the recipe exactly and it will be fab. BUT!!! I have to say that I actually prefer this as a cheesecake slice! It’s easy to cut into pieces, perfect for taking to a special little morning tea… but it’s also AMAZING served as a dessert. It’s like your go-to all-rounder cheesecake slice. I hope I’m selling this to you, because it’s the BEST!!!!

Now you’ve probably noticed that a lot of my cheesecake recipes are no-bake (yes, Tim Tam Cheesecake – I’m looking at you!!), and I really, really do LOVE a no-bake cheesecake. But I know that a lot of people find them quite heavy and filling (not me, because I am a cheesecake fanatic!!!), but baked cheesecakes (or in this case, cheesecake slices) are the total opposite. They’re light, fluffy and totally moorish. Plus they won’t leave you feeling like you need to run a 50km marathon (ha… I’m obviously joking there… I would NEVER run a marathon!). So if you’re like me (and are NOT about to run a marathon), you should totally eat this white chocolate & raspberry cheesecake slice instead. Hehehe!

Notes

Don't overbeat your mixture as this will cause it to crack when cooked.
Place a small baking dish filled with water in the bottom of your oven - this will keep your cheesecake slice moist.
Make sure you cook your cheesecake on the oven shelf the furtherest away from the heat source (in a fan-forced oven the heat comes from the top, so place your cheesecake slice on the bottom shelf).
After your slice has finished cooking, leave the oven door slightly ajar for an hour and allow the cheesecake to cool slowly (this will minimise any cracking or sinking).
