Black Forest Cheesecake
(dairy-free, egg-free, nut-free, can be soya-free, sesame-free, vegetarian and vegan)
makes one 20cm cake, serves 4-6
115g Biscuits, crushed (I used Lotus)
1 tbsp cocoa powder
3 tbsp dairy-free margarine, melted
1 tub of dairy-free cream cheese (150g)
1 tbsp dairy-free yogurt
2-3 tbsp black cherry icing sugar
30g dairy-free dark chocolate
fresh or glace cherries to garnish
Line a spring form cake tin with parchment.
Mix together the crushed biscuits, cocoa powder and melted margarine. Press into the bottom of the tin (and slightly up the sides if you’d like the biscuit crumb edge look). Place int he fridge to chill.
In a food processor (or with a whisk), whisk together the cream cheese, yogurt and 2 tbsps icing sugar. Taste and add more icing sugar if desired. Pour over the chilled base and level off. Leave in the fridge for at least a couple of hours to set.
Melt the chocolate and drizzle over the cheesecake. Garnish with glaze or fresh cherries.
Welcome. I'm a Cordon Bleu trained chef and mother with a passion for cooking vegetarian food. All recipes featured here are dairy, egg, and nut-free, thus 'accidentally' vegan, as my children are allergic to those. My aim is to recreate any dish, even what seems impossible, but free of the ingredients we can't have, and log my exploits here. Please browse what is now several hundred recipes.
