    Eton Mess Cheesecake

    Whip up a true crowd pleaser for the Coronation with this berry tasty recipe.

    Foodie influencer Emy has a following of loyal subjects on social media, and now she’s rolling out the red carpet with a recipe fit for a king. With her trusty KitchenAid Stand Mixer, she’s created a decadent dessert that’ll be the crowning glory to any dinner party. You are cordially invited to make a bit of a mess…

    Here's what you'll need…

    For the base:

    • 300g digestive biscuits
    • 150g butter, melted

    For the filling

    • 115g icing sugar, sieved
    • 300g full fat cream cheese
    • 180g mascarpone
    • 300ml double cream
    • 1tbsp vanilla extract
    • 100g white chocolate, melted
    • 100g fresh strawberries, chopped

    For the topping:

    • 2 meringue nests, crushed
    • Handful of mini meringues (optional)
    • 50g fresh strawberries, chopped

    Step 1

    Crush the biscuits into a fine crumb – using a sandwich bag and rolling pin helps contain the crumb (and mess!). Melt the butter using short bursts in a microwave and combine with the crumbed biscuits. 

    Step 2

    Using a 20cm, loose bottomed cake tin, press the butter and biscuit mix into the base of the tin to form the bottom of the cheesecake. Pop into the fridge whilst you make the filling. 

    Step 3

    Add the icing sugar, cream cheese and mascarpone to the mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whip everything together on a low speed (you may wish to cover the mixer with a tea towel to avoid the icing sugar from going everywhere). Once combined, slowly pour in the cream, vanilla and melted white chocolate. Continue to whip on slow until everything comes together – avoid over mixing. 

    Step 4

    Gently fold in the chopped strawberries then add the filling mix to the chilled cheesecake base. 

    Step 5

    Smooth over the cheesecake mix to create a flat top to the cheesecake. Chill in the fridge for 5 hours, or ideally overnight. 

    Step 6

    Once the cheesecake has set, decorate the top with the meringue and fresh strawberries. Slice and enjoy.
