Recipe: Jaime’s strawberry & rhubarb cheesecake

Jaime's strawberry & rhubarb cheesecake - recipe from chef Jaime at Yeo Valley Organic


 

Ingredients

Serves 8

– 500g Yeo Valley 0% Fat Natural Yeogurt

– 227ml Yeo Valley Double Cream

– 2 heaped tbsp icing sugar

– 2 drops vanilla essence

– 140g digestive biscuits, crushed

– 50g Yeo Valley Unsalted Butter

– 450g Yeo Valley Rhubarb & Strawberry Compote

 

Method

1. Add a pinch of salt to the 0% Fat Natural Yeogurt and stir. Line a sieve with a clean cotton tea towel, put it on a large jug and pour the Yeogurt on the tea towel. Cover and transfer to the fridge for 24 hours.

2. The next day, line the base of a 23cm spring-form cake tin with parchment paper.

3. Melt the butter, crush the biscuits and mix them together. Pour the mixture into the cake tin, spread evenly and press it down firmly.

4. Remove the Yeogurt from the fridge (careful not to spill the liquid in the jug) and remove the cheese that’s in the tea towel.

5. Put the cheese, cream, sugar and vanilla essence into an electric mixer and whisk until well mixed and the cream has started to form a soft whip. Do not over whisk.

6. Spread the cheese mix over the biscuit base and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

7. To serve, slice the cake into wedges and spoon over the Yeo Valley Rhubarb & Strawberry Compote – or you could try our other compotes, Summer Berry and Apple & Blackberry.

You can make mini cheesecakes in old jam jars – just leave out the butter from the biscuit base, pipe the cheese into the jars, and top with the compote.
