Well, here it goes, this recipe was so yummy and easy, I thought I'd share it with you all! Thank You to my darling hubbie for trying the first one. I also had the pleasure of meeting Dawn-Elizabeth Rudd who joined me for a coffee and a chat and tried this pretty little cupcake. Dawn offers lifestyle workshops, one a week in her old vicarage kitchen in Shirley, Derbyshire, so we had quite a lot in common. I'll include the link to her website and you can see which event you'd like to join her for. But, I digress, back to the recipe!
500g philadelphia cream cheese at room temp 100g fairtrade caster sugar 3 large free range eggs, whisked together 1 vanilla pod 175 double cream 200 fairtrade white chocolate, broken/chopped into small pieces (check it's gluten free) 1 punnet raspberries (or 2 depending on how fruity you're feeling)
1 preheat oven to 130 C 2 line muffin tray with cases, silver or pink would be lovely 3 beat together cheese & sugar 4 Gradually add eggs, whisk till combined 5 Scrape seeds from vanilla pod, add to cheese mix& combine well 6 pour cream into saucepan, bring to boil on medium heat 7 add chocolate to cream & mix well until all melted, stir well 8 add chocolate cream to cheese mix and stir until no lumps 9 chop half of your berries and place those into cases 10 pour cheescake mix over berries, fill to just under the rim 11 bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until set but a little soft in the middle, they remain pale in colour 12 cool to room temperature, place in fridge overnight 13 serve with 1 or 3 raspberries on the top of each & a sprinkle of icing sugar
NB you could use mixed berries, a punnet of each raspberries, blueberries & blackberries, or use frozen mixed summer fruit for inside the cup cases, and fresh raspberries for the tops
We've enjoyed 2 batches of these in our household of 2 adults, so I can assure you, they are delicious. I think they look very feminine, very elegant and work perfectly with afternoon tea, or as an easy to prepare in advance and quick to serve dinner party dessert
I'd love to know what you think of my first blog recipe share...please leave me a comment Thanks ;o)
