Fancy doing some baking this weekend? If yes, this creamy vanilla cheesecake recipe might in fact be The One. If not, bookmark it for Valentine’s Day.

Serves: 6-8

Preparation time: 20 minutes plus 1 hour to set

You will need:

200g digestive biscuits crushed

100g melted butter

400g cream cheese

100g icing sugar

500g double cream whipped

1 vanilla pod split

300g Viva Strawberries, halved

For the compote:

100g Viva Strawberries chopped

25g sugar

What to do:

1. Line a 9” springform cake tin with greaseproof paper. Mix the biscuits and melted butter together, and pat into the base of the cake tin. Place in the fridge to set.

2. Beat the cream cheese with the icing sugar then fold in the whipped cream and the seeds from the vanilla pod.

3. To construct the cheesecake, spread a spoonful of the cream cheese on the base, and then place the strawberries all around the sides, standing up with the cut side facing out. Use the cream cheese on the base to stand them in so they are stable. Then fill in with the rest of the cream cheese mix, and level off the top. Place in the fridge to set.

4. Meanwhile make your compote. Put the chopped strawberries and sugar in a pan over a medium heat. Stir constantly until the sugar has dissolved and the strawberries have begun to break down.

5. To serve, carefully remove the cake tin, and peel off the paper. Cut into slices and serve with the warm compote.
