LardButty homemade – Turkish delight cheesecake

What are you doing this weekend? Are you up for eating (and making) Turkish delight cheesecake?

Well come over here and join me. This cheesecake recipe is truly ‘tried and tested’ and it just tastes better and better each time.

It’s a simplified version of Marcus Wareing’s original recipe (his uses gelatine which I don’t; I find the cheesecake sets just fine without gelatine, and it saves time and faffing about).

And I’ve rounded up the quantities of ingredients to make it worth your while getting your hands and spatula dirty.

2. Melt the butter, add honey, and thoroughly stir into the biscuit crumbs, in a bowl

3. Press into silicon cake tray (20cm in diameter, 8cm deep) and refrigerate (there should be enough for a second small cheesecake too – a gift for the freezer or a friend)
