This Cheesecake Recipe is all you need to make a star dessert this Eid 2019!
In our last Kitchen Escapade: Molten Chocolate Cake, we flirted with and indulged our palates. This time, we go one step further and attempt to create a glorious blend of colour-and-taste with the White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe. Did we meet with success in our attempt?

What Our Creation Looked Like
Would you believe we met with the joyous taste of success the first time round? This one was literally a ‘piece of cake’. Especially after our previous, not-so-smooth rendezvous with The Molten Chocolate Cakes.

Why We Chose This Recipe
We wanted to make a cheesecake that was more than just a cheesecake. Anybody can make regular cheesecake. There are no-bake cheesecake recipes that make cheesecake-making a breeze! And if you still don’t want to go through the hassle of making one, you can always pick up a ready-made cheesecake from the bakeries, and most of them taste pretty good too. But a cheesecake with white chocolate raises the bar as it’s not that commonly available in stores. White chocolate with raspberries adds a touch of sophistication and beauty to the final look. The berries also add a seasonal flavour of their own. If raspberries are not in season, you can always use the frozen variety, readily available all year round.

As you can see below, you might want to consider making two of these red-and-white beauties instead of just one!
Our Thoughts in Hindsight
- Wrap the bottom of the spring pan with aluminium foil to prevent any spillage.
- We tried this cake a second time round. This time we bought a Raspberry Coulis (store-bought puree in the frozen section). This saved us the cumbersome task of preparing the puree and de-seeding the raspberries at home. Do add some cornstarch to the puree to thicken it slightly, as the consistency is a tad too runny.
- Do not drizzle the coulis over the top of the cake; it is better served on the side. This simple addition, though seemingly minor, will go a long way in turning this dessert from merely-delicious to truly-outstanding!
- This dessert needs to be made a day in advance, so do plan ahead.
