    Default orkney fudge cheesecake

    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

    Another good base for cheesecake is ginger nuts.

    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

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