Servings:
Serves 12

Ingredients

  • 70g salted butter, plus extra for the tin
  • 100g dark chocolate digestive biscuits
  • 150g almond cantuccini or biscotti
  • 150g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 500g full-'fat' soft cheese
  • 180g icing sugar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 30ml espresso or strong coffee
  • 50ml coffee liqueur
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste, or 1 vanilla pod, split and seeds scraped out

For the coffee syrup

  • 50ml coffee liqueur
  • 50ml espresso or strong coffee
  • 50g golden caster sugar

To serve

  • 200g soured cream
  • 30g chocolate-coated coffee beans

Instructions

  • Step 1: Grease a 20 x 25 x 4.5cm loose- bottomed cake tin or a 23cm loose-bottomed square cake tin and line with parchment paper. Melt the butter in a saucepan over low heat, then transfer to a large bowl and let cool.
  • Step 2: Grind the digestive biscuits and cantuccini or biscotti to fine crumbs in a food processor or in a sealed bag with a rolling pin. Mix the butter into the crumbs, then press the mixture into the prepared tin. Leave in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Step 3: Place a heat-resistant bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt the chocolate. Make sure the bowl isn't in direct contact with the water. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted, then wait for it to cool to the desired temperature, approximately 15 minutes.
  • Step 4: Split the soft cheese, icing sugar, and double cream evenly into two bowls. In one container, add the melted chocolate that has chilled and blend by using a handheld electric mixer until it is a smooth mixture. To the other bowl, mix together the coffee, coffee liqueur, and vanilla and blend with the electric whisk for 3-5 mins (the coffee combination won't become as thick). Spread the chocolate mixture over the biscuit base and make level with a palette knife. Put in the freezer for 30 minutes or until it starts to solidify. Add the coffee combination onto the frozen layer and make it level with a knife. Put back in the freezer for another 24 hrs. Cover and store in the freezer for up to two weeks.
  • Step 5: Combine the coffee liqueur, coffee and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes or until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Once done, let cool to room temperature.
  • Step 6: Allow the cheesecake to thaw out of the freezer for one hour before serving. It can then remain stored in the refrigerator until consumed within three days. Spread the sour cream on top, then drizzle with coffee syrup and adorn with coffee beans. Cut into 12 pieces and serve immediately (the syrup will start to crack the sour cream after approximately 5 minutes).
