Fresh, fruity and full of flavour – there can’t be many more words to describe how amazing this Cheesecake is beginning with the letter ‘f’!
To Serve 2
30g Dark Chocolate
90g Digestive Biscuits, crushed
Rind of 1 Lime
90g Curd Cheese
90g Low Fat Soft Cheese
1 tsp Powdered Gelatine
1tbsp Lime Juice
1 Egg Yolk
45g Caster Sugar
1. Grease a two small (around eleven centimetres across) or one medium (about eighteen or twenty centimetres across) flan tins very well.
2. Melt the Butter and Dark Chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of boiling water – tip: Make sure that the bowl isn’t in contact with the Water – until smooth and well combined. Slowly mix in the Crushed Digestive Biscuits, before evenly spreading them across the base of the Flan Tins evenly, levelling the tops of them. Place the Flan Dishes in a refrigerator and chill until well set.
3. To make the filling, mix the Curd Cheese and the Low Fat Soft Cheese with the Lime Rind, and beat well until the mixture is smooth and evenly blended. Dissolve the Gelatine in the Lime Juice in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water.
4. Beat the Egg Yolk and Sugar together, until thick and creamy. Mix it into the Cheeses, before mixing in the Gelatine and Lime Juice. Pour over the set Biscuit base, and level the top off if needed.
To Serve, top the Flan with some Whipped Cream, slices of Kiwi Fruit and a Sprig of Mint. Carefully remove from the Flan Tin (or tins), and enjoy!
