Double Chocolate & Lime Cheesecake

I have had the pleasure of being chosen to be part of the Appliances British Ovens Rainbow Cookbook, where, along with six fellow bloggers*, I will be posting a recipe relating to a colour of the rainbow. My colour in this wonderful task is green, with my chosen ingredient being limes.

Double Chocolate and Lime Cheesecake

250g Chocolate Bourbon Biscuits
50g Butter, melted
450ml Double Cream
100g Good Quality Dark Chocolate - I used 72% 
300g Full Fat Cream Cheese (Philadelphia)
Juice & grated Zest of 4 limes
50g Icing Sugar - if you have a sweet tooth you may want to double this

To Decorate
Plain chocolate, melted
Lime zest

  • Crush the biscuits to a fine crumb and stir in the melted butter.
  • Press the biscuit mix into the base of a loose bottomed or springform cake pan
  • Refrigerate until set
  • Warm 150ml of the cream in a pan over a low heat until almost boiling.
  • Remove cream from the heat and stir in the broken chocolate, whisk until smooth and glossy
  • Pour over the biscuit base and return to the fridge until set.
  • Beat the cream cheese with the zest, juice and icing sugar
  • Whisk the remaining cream until it forms soft peaks
  • Fold the cream into the cream cheese mix until well combined
  • Pour into the cake pan over the chocolate and return to the fridge until set.
  • Decorate with melted chocolate** and lime zest

**To pipe the lines of chocolate on the cake it's easy to make a small cone, I found a good tutorial online with instructions how to make one.
