White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake
*This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more details!*
A no-bake white chocolate and fresh raspberry cheesecake with a buttery biscuit base, white chocolate & raspberry cheesecake filling, with fresh cream, white chocolate drizzle and even more raspberry!
White chocolate and raspberry
So I adore the combination of white chocolate and raspberry together… because its an absolute dream. My white chocolate & raspberry blondies recipe, and my raspberry & white chocolate mousse are some of my absolute favourites, and this cheesecake tops them. I posted my no-bake white chocolate & strawberry cheesecake recipe years ago as one of the first recipes on my blog, and its always been a hit. To me, I love the combination of white chocolate and strawberries together, but I do admit that raspberries are a better combination. Like honestly, its just DELICIOUS.
No bake recipe
I obviously can’t resist doing a no-bake style cheesecake, as I just find them the best thing ever. But its something that you can also look into a baked cheesecake style if you prefer.. but to get the true taste of the white chocolate and raspberry together I think no-bake is best. I think it stays lighter, creamier, and tastier.
You can use either Philadelphia for example, or you can use mascarpone.. but either way it just has to be full fat. Philadelphia (or other similar ones) give a bit more of a tart taste to it (sharp taste) whereas mascarpone is naturally sweeter. Both set well, but I generally do find that mascarpone sets slightly better as it has less ‘water’ in it for me. This might not be true, but I have always found it to be that way.
I tend to prefer using Philadelphia for cheesecakes that use milk chocolate or dark chocolate, but mascarpone for white chocolate ones. This is purely through making oodles of cheesecakes over the years now. The addition of icing sugar is optional, but I do prefer it. It works better then any other sugar because its so fine it dissolves.
This recipe is obviously very similar to my no-bake white chocolate & strawberry cheesecake, but I don’t mind that. I’ve mentioned before how some of my recipes will be similar to others because its what people search for and the specifics that help them find my recipes. But honestly, I’m glad I am posting this one because its SO VERY YUMMY.
As you can see in the pictures of the slices, you can see the fresh raspberries throughout. They create a wonderful pocket of flavour, amongst the sweet creamy cheesecake. I obviously go a little all-out for the decoration, but its all optional. The drizzle of the chocolate, the sweetened whipped cream, and the extra raspberry decorations.
All of my no-bake cheesecakes can be frozen, or made into mini ones! I realise my recipes are quite ‘large’ so if you’re only a small family, or theres only a couple of you, then you can easily make these into jars, or even small sized ones. The mixture splits evenly and easily. You can also just make a large one and freeze it. Luckily with it being no bake, all you have to do is let it set fully in the fridge overnight, and then freeze after setting. Enjoy this recipe! X
White Chocolate & Raspberry Cheesecake!
- 300 g digestives
- 150 g unsalted butter
- 250 g white chocolate
- 500 g full fat cream cheese
- 100 g icing sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 300 ml double cream
- 250 g fresh raspberries
- 150 ml double cream
- 2 tbsp icing sugar
- 100 g white chocolate
- 12 fresh raspberries
- 10 g freeze dried raspberries
For the Biscuit Base
- Blitz the biscuits in a food processor to a small crumb, and add the melted butter – either pulse in the food processor a few times until the mixture is combined, or mix it in a bowl.
- Tip the biscuits into a 8″/20cm deep springform tin and press down firmly.
For the Cheesecake Filling
- Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, or in the microwave on short bursts until full melted – leave to cool whilst doing the rest.
- In your stand mixer with the whisk attachment, whisk together the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla together until smooth. Pour in the double cream and whisk until thick!
- Once completed, pour in the cooled white chocolate, and whisk briefly to combine, and then fold through the fresh raspberries.
- Spread the mix over the biscuit base, smooth over and chill in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours, or preferably overnight so it will definitely be set.
For the Decoration
- Once set, decorate. Drizzle over the melted white chocolate, and whip together the double cream and icing sugar and then pipe on in swirls! I use a 2D closed star piping.
- I then add some fresh raspberries for each swirl, and then I sprinkle on some freeze dried raspberries!
- If it looks like your cheesecake isn’t setting, or its a but sloppy, or you’re even not sure.. try it anyway. Try to set the mix anyway! If it still doesn’t set, freeze it and have an ice cream cheesecake!
- I recommend using a 8″/20cm deep springform tin in this recipe! And I use a 2D closed star piping tip to decorate!
- I always set my cheesecakes in the fridge overnight otherwise they risk being a little runny still and slipping off the biscuit base!
- I buy my freeze dried raspberries in Waitrose, but they can also be found sometimes in Sainsbury’, Lakeland or here!!
- This recipe will last in a fridge for three days!

Hi Jane last time I made this the chocolate seemed to harden slightly throughout into little flakes almost? Still was absolutely delicious…. My question is do to have to use white chocolate ?
Hiya! You can use any chocolate in this, but this happens because the temperature of the chocolate is wrong! Hope this helps! x
Hi Jane, I’m michele from Tasmania, I made your white chocolate raspberry cheesecake yesterday 2 days ago for Christmas day, set overnight come time to cut it, was sloppy like a soft dessert, not good, I did the mix in my electric mix master, and I think I put the white chocolate in too warm plus overmixing, and I bought my raspberries fresh but I put them in the freezer until I wad ready to use them. I’m going to start all over again and do another one, my everything was all full fat, I’m going to use a Cadbury white chocolate to melt, my other white chocolate buttons didn’t melt that well.
Thanks, Michele from Tasmania 26th December 2022
Hiya! The frozen raspberries may have also contributed to this because of the added moisture from being frozen, Try whipping your cream before using, or you can try using a setting agent! Hope this helps! x
Hi, I love this recipe but I just can’t seem to get it as thick as I’d like, could I add in gelatine to the recipe keeping everything else the same? Thank you!X
Yes absolutely you can! x
Hi. Can the raspberries be substituted for cherries? Either glacé or fresh? Thanks!
Hiya! I personally have not tried this, however it is definitely worth a go! Let me know the outcome! x
Hiya Jane. What perfect cakes you make…I wondered if I used sprinkles instead of freeze dried raspberries on the white chocolate/raspberry cheesecake would it be ok I love the look of that cake…. not a Sainsbury close to me …..Thank you and keep these recipes coming …xx
Thank you so much! Im sure sprinkles would be fine – if not take a look on amazon for freeze dried raspberries! Hope this helps! x
Hi, wondering if shortbread biscuits can be substituted for digestives?
Yes you can! Just a straight swap. Hope this helps! x
Hi Jane. I’m just wondering what brand of white chocolate you use for this? I find white chocolate is a difficult one with setting/melting etc and every brand turns out different! Thanks in advance. xo
Hiya! I use Callebaut white chocolate – I have linked it at the bottom of my Gingerbread NYC Cookies recipe! Hope this helps! x
Hi, I was wondering how many calories this cheesecake is per slice 😌 I love the recipe and it turned out SO tasty!!
Is this recipe
suitable to make for someone who is halal?
Thank you xx
Hi Jane I made this for my hubby’s birthday and it looked great, I took it out of the tin and it was perfect and looked set until I cut into it and it became quite sloppy, should I have whisked the cream first or have I not whisked the mixture enough, I always use mascapone for my cheesecakes but this is the first time I have used cream and melted chocolate, thanks
How would you reduce the recipe two make 12 individual cheesecakes as I’ve just realised I don’t have any large tins but do have a 12 cupcake with removable base one.
Many thanks 😊
You don’t need to reduce the recipe. I have just made them into individual ones tonight. I put a couple of spoonfuls of the biscuits at the bottom of each on and then piled the filling on top.
Hi could I increase the cream cheese to 700g like your vanilla back to basics cheesecake or would the other amounts change too such as the white chocolate
Hi Jane, once the cheesecake has been made can you freeze individual slices to eat at a later date?
Hiya! You could freeze it and have an ice cream cheesecake haha!x
Hi Jane! Just wondering what you recommend to be the best cream cheese combination for this recipe? I know you say mascarpone is better for this particular one but in the video you used philly too because you had it to hand. Was a combination of the two better on balance or would you still recommend mascarpone in its own? I’ve never used it but as my cheesecakes never really set amazingly thought it might turn out better if I did? But it’s for a birthday so I also don’t want to be too risky? Thanks!
This recipe is delicious thank you… Next time I’d like to make it as individual ones, do I need to adjust anything in the recipe Jane?
Hiya! Sounds yummy – take a look at my individual cheesecake recipes for tips! Hope this helps! x
Quick one I remember you have said before Cadbury chocolate is different would I be ok to melt the Cadbury white choc for this please?? Xx
You can if you want, but generally I don’t bother using branded! x
Good morning, I’m making 4 of your raspberry and white chocolate cheesecakes for dessert at my granddaughter’s wedding , three of the tins are 9 inch will I need to increase the recipe or will a thinner version work? It would still be cut into 12 portions. The ‘dummy run ‘ was in an 8” tin and was wonderful.
A thinner version will work in a 9″, but if you want the same depth you need to increase it by 1/3 per tin xx
This recipe worked really well, however I used a raspberry purée instead of fresh raspberries or frozen raspberries. I recommend using a purée as it made it easier to combine into the mixture with the white chocolate and made it very smooth. I used double cream however I wanted to semi whip it separately before adding it to the mixture, the result was amazing it made the cheesecake very light. I’m very happy with how it turned out. Thank you for a good recipe, I made a strawberry gel to top it off with and coconut sorbet to go with it and it was delicious 😋
Hi, I love all your recipes especially this one, I’ve made it quite a few times. Today I used mascarpone instead of Philadelphia. I also added the white chocolate after rather than before the cream and the mixture doesn’t seem to have come out the same, it’s not as smooth however very thick and there are small chunks of hard white chocolate in it (which I’m not completely mad about 😂). I’m just wondering if I’ve over whisked or under whisked it?
It’s in the fridge now so hopefully it’ll set okay 🤞🏼 xx
Hey! Small chunks of chocolate means the chocolate has seized which could well be because you added the chocolate in after. It is worth trying the other method and seeing if it works better for you x
Could you use frozen raspberries in the cheesecake rather then fresh ones?
Hello, the risk of using frozen is the added moisture which could make it soggy xx
I made this cheese cake yesterday and it tastes great! However, 24 hours later and I’m noticing blue/grey splurges forming around the edges (but not the centre) Why is this? I blended my raspberries before adding them into the recipe, would this have an affect?
It could be the raspberry reacting to something? but no idea otherwise!
Could you use frozen raspberries?
Hiii! You will need to use freeze dried raspberries for the best results! x
I thought this was going to be a nice easy cheesecake to do but for someone that hasn’t ever made a cheesecake before I wish it would of said in the ingredients/method that all ingredients should be at room temp as my cream cheese came straight from the fridge and now the cheesecake is lumpy. Don’t know if you can save it or if it will still be nice 😢 shame
The double cream needs to be cold, not all ingredients should be room temp. It should still be absolutely fine though, only maybe seized the chocolate slightly. x
I love all your recipes I’ve done so many now – thank you so much 😍 I’ve had a strange request for a white chocolate and lemon cheesecake this weekend at work and just wondered if I should follow this recipe again and just add in lemon flavour instead? No worries if it won’t work, any help would me much appreciated thanks x
I have just put mine into set and have realised that forgot to put in the cream! I was just wondering how this is going to turn out. many thanks. ]
love the recipe is very easy to follow im just very oblivious.
It will just be heavier in taste and texture! x
I love this recipe but how would you work out the ingredients for the mini cheesecakes?
Have a look at my mini chocolate orange cheesecake recipe and use those quantities! x
I live in Canada and can only find whipping cream. Will that work in your cheesecake recipes?
What is the fat percentage? Our double cream is 47% so if its too much lower you may want to use a setting agent like gelatine or whip the cream separately to stiff peaks and fold it through instead x
Made white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, lt looked and tasted delicious. 😋
Love your cheesecakes Jane!
No matter how hard I try, I can never get the sides smooooth! Do you have any tips or tricks for this pls thanks.
Make sure to pack the mixture into the sides of the tin when you put the mix in, and then smooth with a small knife/pallete knife after removing!
Hi jane. I’ve made this cheesecake many times now and it’s my absolute favourite. I’m just wandering though could I swap out the raspberries for tinned mandarin segments for a different flavour combo?
Ah yay! So glad you liked it – and yes I’m sure that would work if they are drained x
I’ve used strawberries instead of raspberries and I cut up my strawberries and dried them off with a kitchen towel, I then whipped my double cream into stiff peaks it turned out amazing xxxxx
Good Morning Jane,
I’ve made this a few times now and like all your recipes it works every time and it’s always amazing!
Can I ask if I was to experiment abit further, do you think it would work between layers of rich chocolate sponge and maybe freeze rather than chill to set?
The risk you have is that the sponge could very much dry out as it is going to need to be stored in the fridge unless you use a fudge cake sponge – the freezer won’t necessarily help it set any better (As freezing can sometimes cause more problems due to the fruit). Cheesecake on cakes can work though!
I was wondering if I could combine this recipe with the raspberry and lemon cheesecake recipe? I really love the combination of lemon and raspberry but also really like white chocolate:)
Yeah I think adding some lemon to this would be delicious!
Oh dear, I must of posted on the wrong recipe! I actually wanted to mix the lemon and raspberry cheesecake with the raspberry and white chocolate cheesecake recipe. Would this work ok?? Many thanks
Please ignore my last comment, was reading the wrong response. Apologies
Hi Jane. Just realised I’ve no unsalted butter.. can I used salted for the biscuit base?
Yes you can.
Hi Jane. Not sure if my last comment posted. I apologise if it and you have already answered my question. Would an extra 1/3 of ingredients be enough for a 24cm tin or do you think an extra 1/2?
I’ve made this twice now and absolutely love it. Well written instructions and a good recipe for a cheesecake novice like me. Freezes well (which is great so I dont eat it all straight away. Love all your recipes and the videos are brilliant for getting an idea of the desired colour or consistency of different stages of the bake
I’m wanting to use this recipe for a cranachan style cheesecake. Can I use hobnobs not digestives?
Yes you can – I would just maybe reduce the butter to 100g x
Just love your no bake cheesecake recipes. So easy to follow and prepared in no time (minus setting time). Anothed great recipe. I used this as inspiration for white chocolate and raspberry. Hubby doesn’t like the pips on raspberries so made a coulis and swirled it through the mixture a bit like on your no churn icecream. Decorated the top with the coulis and white choc. To make a little lighter I used shortbread for the base and all works perfectly.
Your recipes are my favourite and always check your recipes first before going elsewhere.
Love all your recipes – they never fail to amaze! hoping for your help – i usually use philadelphia in cheesecakes but like the flavour of mascarpone with the white chocolate , so ive tried twice to use it but each time it seems to curdle / split straight away when i start whisking it with the cream – any ideas why this happens with mascarpone? Thanks!
Mascarpone definitely has a different thickness and makeup to other soft cheeses, so it may be better to make sure the mascarpone is at room temperature, and whip the cream separately and fold it through instead and see if that helps you? x
Hi Jane. If I were to use a 23/24cm tin do you think and extra 1/3 all the ingredients would be enough? Or an extra 1/2?
It works the same as the other recipe x
I’ve tried loads of your recipes and they always turn out absolutely perfect and absolutely delicious but im wondering could i use raspberry fluff instead of raspberry
I’m not sure what raspberry fluff is if I’m honest, sorry!
I think all my family is in love with you! Your recipes- OMG delicious!
I have a little problem with biscuit base.
300 g Digestives & 150 g Unsalted Butter – I found very very soggy and wet… I have no idea why… what I do wrong?
It definitely shouldn’t be if you used the right type of biscuits/butter – sometimes ‘light’ can be worse for example! But you can always use less butter – such as 100g or so! x
Would it be possible to replace the cheese with natural Greek yogurt? Would it be possible xx
Hello! The risk in doing so is that it may not set so you would need to use a setting agent as it is much softer than cream cheese xx
I made this dessert and it was lovely – although I think I over whipped it as it came out quite runny. I refroze the leftovers and they were delicious! If I were to make this again but wanted to make half the amount, would you recommended just halving the ingredients and using a smaller tin?
Yes so for half you can use a 6″ tin – and if you struggled for the timings, try whipping things separately, and making sure that the chocolate isn’t too hot! x
Could you use dark chocolate instead of white and if so would you go with the same quantity?
Hello! Yes x
Love this recipe! Could I swap the white choc for milk choc as I love that combo too? Thanks for the fab recipes 🙂
Yes definitely! And thanks! x
Making this today! I watched your youtube video and you mixed 1/3 mascarpone and philadephia- may i ask what grams/proportions you would suggest?
It doesn’t matter, it’s just the weight – you can use different ratios, I just did that as it’s what I had.
I have made this today but cannot get freeze dried raspberries anywhere. I’ve got baked ones but they have a bit of a bitter taste and not such a vibrant red. Can you suggest an alternative please?
I would just leave them off!! x
Morrisons have a 10g bottle for £1.50!!
If your in the uk you can get them from sainsbury’s. Otherwise online… x
I ve made lots of your cheesecakes and they all turn out delicious. Made this one last week and for the first time used mascarpone. Family loved it , I found it slightly to sweet but it’s a personal choice . I would definitely make it again but with cream cheese . As always it looked a show topper. I love your recipes , thank you so much for sharing them
I’m looking forward to trying this recipe for my brother’s birthday. However I can’t find fresh raspberries anywhere. Any advice on using frozen raspberries as an alternative please? I don’t want them to make it too soggy.
You can do, but I would thaw them slightly and drain the liquid so it doesn’t cause a problem!
This is honestly one of my new favourite things ever! I’ve made this 3 times now and it never fails to impress. Also made this as mini cheesecakes by halving the mixture and it worked just as well!! Thanks for this one, Jane!
I tried your white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and it is safely setting in the fridge. I’m visiting my in laws tomorrow for a socially distanced meet in the garden and wondered what the best way would be to travel with the cheesecake for 2.5 hrs! Could I stick it in the freezer for an hour in the morning before I leave or is that going to cause me more problems? Would it be happier if I stick it in a cooler bag from the fridge?
Hey! So I would stick it in the freezer for a bit for sure, and also use freezer blocks on the journey. 2.5 hours is a long time and the cool bag might not be cool enough without freezer blocks! (I’ve travelled two hours with a cheesecake before, and needed the blocks!)
Lovely cheesecake was just wondering do you have to use the icing Sugar? I just find it a bit sweet.
You can leave it out if you find it less sweet – or if you typically use mascarpone you can use regular soft cream cheese as it has a tarter flavour!
Your cheesecake recipes are amazing !
I made the toblerone one requested by my husband for his birthday, and it was delicious, and devoured by the family very quickly.
I’m going to make the raspberry and white chocolate one today, but wanted to ask, could I use frozen raspberries ( not defrosted) in place of fresh ? Are they likely to affect the setting of it as they thaw inside the cheesecake ?
Thanks so much
Hey! If I was using frozen I would personally let them thaw a bit and drain off any liquid, as it could potentially cause a problem! xx
If I use mascapone instead of philidelphia like you mentioned in your comments, it’s sweeter and sets a bit better – do I use exactly the same amount? So 500g of mascapone instead of 500g of philly?
Yes you use the same amount! x
Can I ask why your recipe says to add the cream before the chocolate but your YouTube video says to add the chocolate first? I’ve just followed the recipe here and now worried this won’t set as I’ve added the chocolate last and didn’t want to over mix it on a hot day as it felt it was getting looser
You can do it either way! Honestly it works both ways – I just filmed it the other way around.
Ok thanks! Fingers crossed it sets
Can this cheesecake be made in individual shots? Xx
Yeah! it would make quite a few though so it may be best to half it! x
Wow this is so delicious! First time making a cheesecake and now I want to make another! Only thing is my biscuit base is stuck to the tin, what did I do wrong?! Xxx
I use a thin knife and it sorta slides/lifts/comes off – you can try lining it if you struggle! x
Just made this again for my lockdown wedding! Can’t get enough of it!!
Hi there, I’ve just made this and it is divine! Please can you tell me if you know any nutritional info? Watching what I eat mid lockdown… 🙈 can’t wait to try more! Thank you 😊
This was the first cheesecake I ever made and noone believed me, that’s how good this recipe is! My boyfriend is constantly asking me to make this and it is now his regular birthday ‘cake’.
Awh yay!! x
Do your cheesecakes freeze?,and how long do they take to defrost before eating them?
Yes they do – and timings can definitely vary, but I usually say take it out the night before you want it and keep in the fridge as it shouldn’t be left at room temp!
Such an amazing recipe! Tastes incredible!
Amazing. First time I’ve tried making a cheesecake and it was delicious and worked really well. Gave me the confidence to try out other cheesecakes.
This tastes absolutely delicious but presentation isn’t as good as I expected. I felt it very squashed in 8 inch tin it was uneven when done and even some gaps between the cheese and the base. Just wondered would a 9 inch springform be better. Also any tips to stop cheesecakes sticking to sides of tin thanks Jane.
Hey! So gaps can occur as you haven’t out the cheesecake mix in as well as possible. One good tip is to push the mix into the sides of the tin, and then fill in the rest and even it out! If you also struggle to remove it from the tin, you can line the sides of the tin, but I personally don’t like doing this! Obviously some tins are different depths, but all my mixes perfectly fit my 8″ tins! x
My first time ever making a cheesecake (I now have a new hobby thanks to quarantine!) and wow it turned out so well thanks to this recipe. I used Biscoff biscuits for the base (divine) and crushed up in a bowl using a bottle of wine (no baking equipment I’m afraid!) I also used a manual/ regular whisk for the cream cheese filling and worked very well, just need a bit of elbow grease! Thank you x
Ahhh yay! So glad you enjoyed it!! X
Can you use biscoff biscuits for the base? X
Hello, does it matter if I use white chocolate in bar or chip form?
Not for this as it’s being melted!
Hi, could you tell me how many minutes do you whip the first ingredients please? Because as i was whisking t more and more ait became become looser. You say to whisk until his steak. So how many minutes would you whisk the cream cheese with icing sugar? Thanks
I won’t say timings, as all mixers and bakers are different. You keep an eye on it, and whisk till it’s thick. Watch some of my videos for examples.
I was wondering, could you make a raspberry jam and swirl into the mixture versus using fresh raspberry bits? Or would this interfere with the mixture’s ability to set properly?
It can do – generally I find fresh fruit such as raspberries are easier to use as they don’t ooze too much liquid, but as long as it’s not too much it should be fine!
Hey I just made this. Takes amazing (from licking the spoon) but as I added the cooled chocolate to the cream cheese mix, is seized and went hard. I’ve mixed it all together and put it in the fridge but how do I stop this happening next time? Thank you xx
It will still set and taste lovely – but all it means is the temperature difference between the chocolate and cream cheese mixture was a little too varied still. Either have your cream cheese mixture at a more room temp level, or cool your chocolate further! x
Could I make mini cheesecakes with this recipe
Yes you can! I usually make 12 out of a batch.
I had this cheesecake at a friends house and had to have the recipe. I’ve never made cheesecake before. This was such an easy recipe to follow and it set perfectly. I whipped up the white chocolate when it was almost all melted and let it cool until it was body temp before I added it. I dont have a lot of baking equipment but I managed fine with a potato masher and a rolling pin to crush the biscuit, and a hand held mixer for whipping up. My friend served it with raspberry sauce made from crushed raspberries and icing sugar. I’ll be doing the same. I’ll be back to try out more recipes. Huge thanks- my Christmas dinner now has the wow factor.
I made this cheesecake a week or two ago, having read some of the comments I was a little nervous with how it would be due to the mixture being less thick once they had put the melted chocolate in. However, once the chocolate had melted I allowed it to cool completely. When I had put the chocolate into the mixture, it remained nice and thick. The cheesecake set beautifully, my husband and I had a slice each for our dessert after our Sunday lunch served with double cream, it was delicious. The remaining ten slices went to family and friends, nothing but good feedback from all. Will certainly make again and will be trying another recipe soon.
Fab recipe. I shared this with a big group of people who all said it’s my best bake ever! I ensured the chocolate was completely cool before adding and turned out really well. I had to use frozen raspberries as I was unable to get any fresh, I was worried theyau prevent it setting but it was fine.
Hi, I tried this today and i had it at a good thick consistency before adding the melted chocolate but after adding the chocolate i couldnt get it as thick again. Im hoping it will set ok in the fridge. How long should i whip after adding the chocolate? I was afraid of over whipping. Should i have just under mixed it before adding the chocolate so that i could have mixed it more after adding the chocolate? I hope you can help. Thank you ( i am using a stand mixer) 🙂
The chocolate could naturally have melted the mixture slightly if it was a smidge too hot, but it would be obvious if there was a massive issue – such as if it was a very liquidy mix! Maybe next time either whip the first few ingredients slightly less, or fold the white chocolate through! x
Hi mine just did this too, thought it was cool but maybe not- did yours set?
As mentioned in the reply to Lisa, it may just be that it wasn’t whipped enough, or you can fold the chocolate through instead.
I love this cheesecake and it is always a hit! Tip: Whip the cream separately until its thick (like icing). I whisk the melted white chocolate along with the cheese mixture and then add the whipped cream to the cheese mix. This ensures a perfectly thick (spreadable) cheesecake mix that firms up a treat every single time! Fab recipe. X
Amazing, so glad you liked it! I find whipping the cream separately doesn’t set as well for me, so each to their own! x
Can you use half Philadelphia and half mascarpone? I have tried but once I add the cooled chocolate it seems to soften and not set well?
Yes you can – either shouldn’t matter for the chocolate. If it softened it it might have still been a little too hot for it, but usually chocolate helps a cheesecake set x
Hi! Can you tell me how long it will last in the freezer? And would it still be ok to eat after 4 days once thawed?
Hiya! I usually say 3 months maximum for most desserts, but only ever keep them in about a month personally, and no it’s three days as mentioned in the recipe x
Hi, I have just made your white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake, I think I over mixed it…help…anything I can do it save it. Thanks so much
How did it turn out? ☺️
Hi, would it be okay to use single cream and whip it first? Any time I use mascapone and add the cream in as a liquid, it doesn’t set properly, how long would you whip it for and on what speed? Thank yo!
You can whip the cream separately, but you would still need to use double cream – single cream is too thin. You need to whip the cream up to just before stiff peaks, and then fold into the mixture.
Hello! I made this and followed your exact instructions, however the cheesecake mixture was not as firm as yours. I don’t think I overmixed…
It tasted delish and was a massive hit however wasn’t as firm as I would have liked. Do you have any suggestions pls?
You didn’t whip it enough, you just need to whip it up a bit more!
Thank you so much! I shall try that. I am planning to make it again this weekend as my friend is coming!!!
Jane.. I love you so much… I’ve made your white chocolate and raspberry cheese cake 4 times. Comes out right everytime… It’s amazing… I’m no good at baking, everytime I’ve made your cheesecake people ask for the recipe they love it so much.. I tell them its my friend Jane’s recipe. Thank you so much.
Awh thank you!
Hi Jane, you say you prefer mascarpone but have Philadelphia in the ingredients.. Did you use mascarpone in the one in this picture? It looks amazing so I want mine to turn out like that 🙂
I have ‘Full Fat Cream Cheese’ in the ingredients as this is Philadelphia or Mascarpone and some people don’t use Philadelphia in general – In the post I have explained the difference and its more of a taste thing really, but in the one pictured I believe I used Philadelphia? It’s hard to say really as it was a while ago that I made it!! Sorry! x
Would it be ok use the same quantity of gluten free biscuits? Love your recipes but now gluten free so trying to adapt!
Yes! I’m not sure whereabouts you’re based, but I liked Tescos own gluten free digestives for my cheesecake bases!
Can frozen raspberries be used?
You could certainly give it a go, but because its not baked, they might ooze some liquid through thawing!
Hi Jane, I made this last night for a big family dinner today and was delighted this morning to see it’s turned out perfectly! This is the third recipe of yours I have made so far, and have loved them all. You are now my go-to! Thank you
Yay I’m so glad!! x
I want to make a similar cheesecake but use crush milkshake which is a liquid have you got any advice as to how I could alter this recipe to achieve that.
Thanks so much.
Hiya – You can use milkshake powders in cheesecakes to flavour but if you want to use actual liquid you’d have to use gelatine to set it like I do in my Gin and Tonic Cheesecake.
Just tried this. It has been 12 hours and still hasn’t set 🙁 Maybe I should’ve whipped the double cream before adding it to the cheesecake mixture.
I’m going to leave it another 20 hours (its for Mothers day) and see if it sets.. but I doubt it. Ice cream cheesecake should be nice.
How did it turn out? It probably was that it wasn’t thick enough but I hope it tasted okay!
Your cake looks good but the ingerdiens needs to in ounes instead of grams
I live in the UK so its in grams.
