Ingredients

  • 200 g plain sweet biscuits like Arnotts Scotch Finger, crushed

  • 200 g white chocolate
  • ¾ cup raspberries fresh or frozen, pureed

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste optional, or vanilla extract
  • 150 g (¾ cup) sugar

Instructions

Conventional Method

  • To ensure a smooth cheesecake, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting.
  • Grease and line a 23cm spring-form pan with baking paper and set aside.
  • Finely crush biscuits in a food processor and place into a bowl.
  • Add the melted butter and mix until well combined.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the base of the pan and place into the fridge.
  • Whip cream and set aside.
  • Melt white chocolate and set aside to cool slightly.
  • Puree frozen (or fresh) raspberries in a food processor and set aside.
  • Pour ¼ cup of boiling water into a cup, sprinkle over the gelatine and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • Beat the cream cheese, vanilla bean paste and sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the cooled, dissolved gelatine to the mix and beat until well combined.
  • Fold through the melted white chocolate and the whipped cream.
  • Divide the cheesecake mixture evenly between two bowls.
  • Stir the pureed raspberries through one bowl.
  • Spoon the white chocolate mixture into the prepared tin. Spread out evenly with a spoon.
  • Place into the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Spoon the raspberry mixture over the top of the white chocolate layer and spread out evenly with a spoon.
  • Place the cheesecake into the fridge to set for a minimum of 4 hours (for best results, leave in the fridge overnight before cutting).
  • Decorate with fresh raspberries and grated white chocolate.

Thermomix Method

  • To ensure a smooth cheesecake, make sure all ingredients are at room temperature before starting.
  • Grease and line a 23cm spring-form pan with baking paper and set aside.
  • Melt butter in the TM bowl for 2 minutes, 100 degrees, Speed 1. Add the biscuits and crush for 10 seconds, Speed 10. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and repeat until well combined.
  • Press the mixture firmly into the base of the pan and place into the fridge.
  • Whip cream in a clean, dry TM bowl on Speed 3.5 until lightly whipped (the time it takes will depend on the freshness of the cream - it can be anywhere between 10 seconds and 2 minutes!!) Set the cream aside in a separate bowl.
  • Place the white chocolate into the TM bowl and melt for 3 minutes on 50 degrees, Speed 2. Set aside in a bowl to cool slightly.
  • Puree frozen (or fresh) raspberries in the TM bowl for 15 seconds, Speed 10. Set aside.
  • Pour ¼ cup of boiling water into a cup, sprinkle over the gelatine and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool.
  • Beat the cream cheese, vanilla bean paste and sugar in a clean and dry TM bowl for 30 seconds on Speed 5. Scrape down the sides with a spatula and repeat until smooth and creamy.
  • Add the cooled, dissolved gelatine to the mix and mix for 30 seconds on Speed 5.
  • Fold through the melted white chocolate and the whipped cream with the spatula.
  • Divide the cheesecake mixture evenly between two bowls.
  • Stir the pureed raspberries through one bowl.
  • Spoon the white chocolate mixture into the prepared tin. Spread out evenly with a spoon. Place into the fridge for 15 minutes.
  • Spoon the raspberry mixture over the top of the white chocolate layer and spread out evenly with a spoon.
  • Place the cheesecake into the fridge to set for a minimum of 4 hours (for best results, leave in the fridge overnight before cutting).
  • Decorate with fresh raspberries and grated white chocolate.

Notes

  • You can use fresh or frozen raspberries. You'll end up pureeing most of them for the raspberry cheesecake layer, but I also like to have a few fresh raspberries to decorate the cheesecake after it's finished!
  • Blending the raspberries prevents the juice from "bleeding" into the mixture. Using the raspberry puree allows you to get a really pretty, 2-layer finish with a nice contrast between the white chocolate and vanilla bean layer, and the raspberry layer.
  • Make sure that all of your ingredients are at room temperature before you start to ensure you have a smooth, creamy dessert.
  • Store your cheesecake in the fridge and consume within 5 days.
  • Make ahead, allow to set in the fridge, then freeze your cheesecake for up to a month.
