Proper Nutty Peanut Butter


Peanut Butter Cheesecake

This indulgent and impressive dessert is perfect for a special occasion!

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (160°C fan).
  2. Blitz the ingredients for the base in a food processor until they look like coarse breadcrumbs.
  3. Press firmly (but not too hard) into the bottom of a 23cm / 9inch springform tin lined with a circle of greaseproof paper, press up the sides just a little and put into the fridge while you make the filling.
  4. Put the ingredients for the filling into the food processor and whizz to combine.
  5. Pour the filling onto the base and cook for 40-45 minutes.
  6. Take the cheesecake out of the oven while you make the topping.
  7. Warm the topping ingredients gently in a small saucepan, stirring continuously, then spoon over the top of the cheesecake and put it back in the oven for a final 10 minutes
  8. Once out of the oven, let the cheesecake cool in its tin and then cover and put into the fridge overnight.
  9. Before serving, take it out of the fridge to take the chill off as this will make it easier to remove from the tin.

Cooks tip: Put the base of the springform tin in upside down as this gives a completely flat surface and makes removing the cheesecake easier!
