Cheesecake Topped With Grilled Honey-Buttered Peaches

Jenny Morris for Juicy Delicious


Serves 8 - 10


Ingredients

  • 200 g ginger biscuits, crumbed

  • 100 g salted butter, melted

  • 5 large eggs

  • 275 g castor sugar

  • 2 tsp lemon zest

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 750 g cream cheese, softened

  • 1 tsp cake flour

  • 250 ml double thick cream, lightly beaten

 

Grilled Honey Buttered Peaches
  • 6 large peaches, halved and pitted

  • 100 g softened butter

  • 2 tbsp runny honey

  • seeds from 1 vanilla pod

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar


Method

  1. Before you get started with the baking, line the base of a 20 cm loose-bottomed cake tin with baking paper and pre-heat the oven to 170 °C.

  2. Now place the biscuit crumbs into a bowl and add the melted butter. Mix together well and then press onto the base of the prepared cake. Smooth down with the back of a spoon. Chill until you need it.

  3. Put the eggs and castor sugar in the bowl of your food processor and whisk until light and fluffy. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cream, and mix together well. Fold in the cream and pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin.

  4. Make a collar by cutting a strip of baking paper long enough to go all the way around the cake tin. This must be about 3 cm higher than the top of the baking tin. Roll it into a cigar and unravel and place around the inside of the baking tin. Secure the ends together with a paper clip. Then gently spoon the mixture into the baking tin.

  5. Place the cheesecake into the preheated 170 °C oven and bake for 80-90 minutes. The cheesecake should have a tiny wobbly spot in the centre and, as the cake cools, the centre will firm up.

  6. Store the cheesecake covered in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.
