Mojito Cheesecake

Claudia Keller

I will not lose words over this one. I tried putting together my own recipe for a Mojito Cheesecake. I am pretty chuffed about the result. So here is my recipe: 

For the base (for a 26cm cake tin):

300g McVities Digestives (I tried lots of other brands and types of biscuits but these just work and taste the best), crushed to fine crumbs (put them in a plastic bag, hammer them with a rolling pin, I find this bit very therapeutic)

Zest of 1 lime

80g melted butter

Mix it all together and put it in your tin as the base.  

The filling:  

400g cream cheese 

250g sweetened condensed milk (that is the amount in your regular tube)  

100g double cream

60g cane sugar

Mix the above in a bowl. Then add:

3 eggs (beaten)  

Juice of 3 limes and zest of 1 lime

2 tablespoons of Rum (I used my boyfriend's 20 year old Dictador, please, don't tell on me...). 

Pour the mix into the tin and bake in the oven at 180C for about 40-50 minutes. Then turn off the oven, open the oven door a few cm and leave the cake to cool in there (less cracks in the surface).  

When the cake has cooled down, mix 1 dl of Roses Mojito Lime with 1 tablespoon of Rum and enough Agar Agar (about 1/2 a teaspoon) to turn it into jelly. Boil the mix according to the instructions on the Agar Agar pack and leave to cool for a bit before pouring just enough on your cake to cover the surface. If you want a less paly effect, you can add some green food colouring (I did not). Arrange some peppermint leaves on the cake for decoration. Leave in the fridge for a few hours to set. 

Enjoy!
