Peanut butter and jam cheesecake recipe

4 ratings

Peanut butter is the star ingredient in this moreish no-bake cheesecake recipe. It's a clever twist on the perennial sandwich combo, with a crunchy digestive biscuit base, nutty soft cream filling and a drizzle of strawberry jam to finish. Start this recipe the day before to allow the cheesecake to set. See method

  1. Lightly grease and line the bottom of a 18cm loose-bottomed cake tin. Put the biscuits in a food processor and blitz until sandy in texture, then stir in the butter. Spoon into the prepared cake tin; pack down and level with the back of a spoon. Chill for 20 mins, or until firm.
  2. Meanwhile, put the soft cheese, double cream, peanut butter, icing sugar and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and whisk until it’s thick and holds a soft peak well. Spoon over the base and level out with a spoon. Allow to set in the fridge for 8 hrs, or ideally overnight.
  3. Whisk the jam in a small mixing bowl to loosen it up. Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Spread the jam all over the top, encouraging it to cascade down the sides, then scatter over the peanuts to serve.

Tip: The cheesecake will keep in the fridge for up to 2 days. Top with the jam and peanuts just before serving
