Cheesecake: a perfect dessert to serve on Valentine’s Day
Cheesecake is a very rich dessert made from a biscuit base with cream cheese filling and originates from Ancient Greece where it has been used for many years as wedding cakes, and was served to athletes in the 776 BC Olympic Games to give them energy. The perfect dessert to serve to your loved one on Valentine’s Day, it doesn’t have to be as complicated as you might think.
Over the years, the recipe has changed and been added to by all of the people that have come across it and even today there is no ‘set’ recipe for how a cheesecake should be. The base can be thick or thin, sticky or crumbly, and the topping can either be sweet or tangy, light or thick and creamy – it depends on the recipe that you use!
Some recipes include baking the cheesecake, whereas others can be unbaked and yet just as delicious, so if you want to try your hand at a basic cheesecake recipe, all you will need is the ingredients for the filling and the base.
The base can be made of 90g butter and 250g biscuits – you can have crushing and crumbling the biscuits up into fine or chunky crumbs too. The filling can be made up of 440g cream cheese, 400ml double cream, and 120g caster sugar. All you need to do is put the base together in a cake tin, place in the fridge, add the filling and the chill for about 4 hours until set. Simple and delicious.
