Earl Grey And Clotted Cream Cheesecake

How To Make An Earl Grey And Clotted Cream Cheesecake:


  1. Firstly, make the base. Grease and line a 20cm loose-bottomed baking tin with parchment paper.
  2. Place the digestive biscuits in a Food Processor and blitz until the mixture is fine breadcrumbs. Alternatively, put the biscuits in a freezer bag and crush using a rolling pin. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and pour in the melted butter – stir to combine well.
  3. Tip the crumbs into the prepared tin and using the back of a spoon press firmly into the base. Chill in the fridge for 1 hour to firm up.
  4. In the meantime, place the clotted cream and milk in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Split the tea bags and sprinkle the loose tea into the clotted cream mixture. Carefully bring the clotted cream to the boil over a gentle heat. Allow to simmer for just a minute before removing from the heat and allowing to cool and steep for 2 hours.
  5. Combine the soft cheese and icing sugar in a large bowl and whisk with an electric mixer until smooth. When the cream has cooled, pass through a fine sieve to remove all the tea and slowly beat into the cream cheese mixture until all combined.

Remove From Fridge:

Earl Grey And Clotted Cream Cheesecake:

  1. Remove the base from the fridge and spoon the cheesecake mixture on top, working to the edges ensuring there are no air bubbles. Smooth the top and create a swirl using a spatula. Return to the fridge and allow to set for at least 2 hours, but ideally overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, bring the cheesecake to room temperature; this will take approximately 30 minutes. Run a warm knife around the edge of the tin before releasing the cheesecake. Smooth the edges using a palette knife if needed.
  3. Transfer onto a Serving Plate or cake stand. Decorate with chocolate shavings.
