INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUST

  • 150 g crumbled digestive biscuits – use a food processor for this
  • 6 tbsp melted butter

FOR THE CHEESE CAKE

  • 1 packet orange Jelly 135g - Chivers, Hartley or something similar
  • 150 ml boiling water
  • 900 grams cream cheese – I used 3 250ml tubs
  • 40 g icing sugar
  • 500 ml whipped cream - WHIP THE CREAM FIRST AND THEN MEASURE IT
  • zest of one large orange
  • 1 tsp orange extract
  • ORANGE COLOURING - OPTIONAL

FOR DECORATION – ALL OPTIONAL

  • Cream Swirls
  • Orange Zest
  • Orange Chocolate Drops
  • Mini Meringues mini orange jelly’s
  • Or just drizzle with some melted white milk or dark chocolate

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spray an 8” or 9” springform baking pan with baking spray or use some melted butter.
  2. Mix together the digestive biscuit crumbs and the melted butter in a bowl, then press them into the bottom of the spring form pan.
  3. Chill the crust in the freezer for at least 30 mins or until ready to use.
  4. Melt the orange jelly with the boiling water in a pot over a low heat and stir until dissolved. Leave to one side to cool for 5 minutes but careful not to let it set too much.
  5. Whip the cream cheese and the powdered sugar until well combined.
  6. Whip the cream and measure out 500ml of whipped cream.
  7. Add the Orange Jelly mixture along with the orange extract to the cream cheese mixture very slowly. Put your mixer on a slow speed and mix till everything is incorporated and there are no lumps.
  8. Gently fold in the orange zest and the whipped cream with a rubber spatula until combined.
  9. (This is where I added the orange coloring but this totally optional and not necessary. I only did it to get a light orange colour) I gently mixed it in with the spatula
  10. Pour the mixture into biscuit base.
  11. Chill the cheesecake overnight to set.

DECORATE

  1. Remove the Cheese Cake from the pan & decorate to your hearts content.
  2. I used whipped cream, some mini meringues, orange chocolate drops - but you could keep it simple with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate
