Tried&Tested: Nigella’s Nutella Cheesecake

PMDSC_0082

I recently found myself with two jars of nutella in the cupboard (I know – it’s a hard life eh?) But I was at risk of sitting and eating them with a spoon so I wanted a recipe to use up a decent proportion and a very quick internet search bought up a Nigella Lawson Cheesecake recipe. Cheesecake is a favourite of mine so what could be better!

You can find the recipe online here, its really easy to follow and doesn’t take to long to make, except for the times for the base to chill and then the topping to set, but I’m sure you can all find something to do during these times (maybe sit on twitter and instagram like me!) The recipe uses up an entire 400g jar of nutella Β – not a calorie light dessert, so make sure you invite some friends round to share it, or better still take it to work like I might! The only other ingredients are hazelnuts, digestives, icing sugar, butter and cream cheese so mostly stuff you’ve probably already got in your baking cupboard. It tastes best chilled, so serve it straight from the fridge if you can.

In esscence all you need to do is blitz up the biscuits with some of the hazlenuts, butter and a spoon of the nutella to make the base

Then whizz up the topping, decorate and leave to chill.

    I made this for dessert for our belated family Christmas (in January, this year). I liked it, but the rest of my family thought it was way too rich and only ate about a third of their piece (and they were not large pieces). They normally love desserts. I nearly cried – but then realised that I was probably still getting over jetlag and probably needed to just get over it (the dessert, that is). Glad to hear that you had better success.
