    "With the days getting duller and the seasonal lethargy kicking in, who can resist this quick and easy pick-me-up to give you a caffeine boost? So, this dessert combines the flavours of a cheesecake washed down with a cup of coffee with the creamy coolness so needed while sat in front of the fire this season. It´s easy to make and will definitely go down a treat with your family or guests."

    Here´s what you´ll need...

    • 150g cream cheese
    • 300ml double cream plus extra for decoration
    • 150g golden caster sugar
    • 3 large egg yolks
    • 2 espresso shots
    • digestives and dark chocolate for decoration

    Here´s how it´s done... Step 1

    First of all make two espresso (espressos, espressi, caffè espresso – I think the jury is still out on the correct plural)

     

    Step 2

    Whisk the double cream until stiff, put into the fridge

     

    Step 3

    Whisk the egg yolks and the sugar until pale and fluffy.

     

    Step 4

    Add the espresso whilst continuing to whisk.

     

    Step 5

    Now whisk in the cream cheese.

     

    Step 6

    Get the cream from the fridge and fold into the mix with a spatula.

     

    Step 7

    Pour the mix into four glasses and put into the fridge to set.

     

    Step 8

    When ready to serve, top with whipped cream, crushed digestives and grated chocolate.
