Does anyone have a receipe for Orkney fudge cheesecake as I absolutely adore the stuff??

Also any advice appreciated, on how to make the base stay together and the filling to become light & fluffy. (my cheesecakes are not brill!!)

Thank you in advance.

finally something i can comment on!!
We owned a pub/restaurant in Orkney & we got the receipe from our head chef!!
Its all in the cream you use!!! Meadowland cream.....
The only place i can get the stuff is the freezer centre in kirkwall i now live outside of inverness & cant get it so when my mum comes down she takes a case!!!
To make the base you gentle heat in a pan crushed digestives with lots of syrup & butter til its stodgy!!!
Lay it in the base of the cake tin put in fridge - then in your big bowl put the nearly whole carton of meadowland cream in it 2 x 200g of philidelphia cheese & start mixing with the electric mixer whilst doing this add a good dunk of caster sugar - then when the mixture starts to thicken start flaking the orkney fudge into it & finish the cake with the fudge flaked ontop for presentation too..... Yummy yum!!
Hopeyou enjoy, i make them for all my home parties & when my friends are having dinner parties too - thornton fudge is also beautiful.. angela x

Thanks Anne x. I eventually got round to making this last weekend. My effort scored 12/10 for taste & moreish-ness but only 2/10 for presentation. That was my own fault entirely. I'd only bought a half-pint of cream so I added a tub of whipped creme-fraiche to the mix to make up the quantity. The cheesecake was therefore slightly soft :lol:

I'll give it another go soon with the correct ingredients. Now, does anyone have the number for Scottish Slimmers...?

Now Moira, just when did you say you were going to have another go?;)

You can get meadowland from Sutherland Bros in Wick.They also do the sweet one-Lactofil.
When I was cheffing always bought it from them.I think you may need an account with them, but if you know any shopkeepers etc they may be abale to get it for you, but it only comes in a case of 12 i think.

I'm bringing this recipe to the top of the forum again. No apologies, it is absolutely decadent and totally right for this time of year. Enjoy!

(Btw you can buy real Orkney Fudge Bars in Meiklejohn's shop in Thurso Street, Wick) Failing that, any fudge would do as a second best, I guess.

Tuggs, I don't like fudge either but I made this cheesecake, initially, for my hubby. I found that the firm texture of the Orkney fudge melts into the cream/cheese mixture forming soft, toffee swirls throughout the topping.

I'm not a "sweet" person (ask anyone who knows me :D) but even I've managed a second spoonful of this particular recipe.

a thought struck me last night about this, i wonder if caramac bars would work? do they even still make them?

Anne x
08-Jan-09, 02:01
Well folks been away canna believe that this recipe is so popular and it is so decadent all enjoy
Im quite sure you are all contributing to the Orkney Fudge Sales you can buy it in Brass,s Thurso as well thats where I always got mine
tuggs if you are using caramac melt over a bowl of water and use more than specified for the fudge it does work

I have always heated up the fudge before folding in and gives you loads of very soft/runny bits through it (think recipe came from Foveran Hotel in Orkney). The Kirkwall Hotel add whisky to theirs and can highly reommend it even at 5 a slice.

I don't know if it would work in this recipe, Tuggs, but I bought some Caramac in the corner shop in Halkirk a few weeks back. I hadn't tasted it for years.
