Cheesecake for Saturday

Cheesecake with white chocolate and cranberries

Another recipe for you, I've decided to make more cakes and try out different recipes I find on the Polish culinary blogs, Here is the cheesecake just before it went into the oven:


  • 120 g of cookies, digestive type
  • 50 g butter, melted
Crush the cookies, mix the crumbs and butter. Press firmly onto bottom of 9-in/22 cm springform pan. place in the fridge for about 30 min.

Cheese cake:

  • 60 ml of creme fraiche
  • 130 g of white chocolate + 70 g for the glaze
  • 375 g of cream cheese
  • 1 Tsp orange zest
  • 110 g icing sugar
  • 1 egg


  • 150 - 200 g cranberries (frozen or fresh)

In a double boiler melt the chocolate with creme fraiche, let it cool down.

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar, orange zest and egg until fluffy.
Add the chocolate/cream mixture. Pour it onto crust. On the top add cranberries (red currants may also work here quite well, or raspberries).

Bake for about 1 hour in 160°C/320 F.

After it's baked and cooled down, glaze it with some melted white chocolate.

The cheesecake must stay in the fridge for at least 3 hours before it's served! Wait a bit, it's totally worth it! *^v^*

Robert's mother paid us a visit today and the cheesecake almost didn't make it till the photoshoot! *^v^*
