  1. 1

    For the coulis: Place half the raspberries in a microwaveable bowl and cook for 1 minute. The raspberries should not be soft and releasing juice. Crush them with a fork and then pass the liquid through a fine sieve to remove the seeds.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150g Raspberries fresh, plus extra for decoration
  2. 2

    Place the raspberry juice, sugar and lemon juice into a small saucepan and bring to the boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 100g White caster sugar
    • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  3. 3

    Reduce to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes until syrupy. Remove from the heat and stir in the raspberry liquor if using. Allow to cool and thicken before using.

    For this step you'll need:

    • ½tsp Raspberry liqueur
  4. 4

    Place the digestives in a food processor and process into crumbs. Melt the butter over a low heat and mix in the biscuit crumbs and chocolate drops. Lightly grease a 25cm loose-bottomed cake tin and press the crumbs into the base. Leave to chill.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g Digestive biscuits
    • 100g Butter (unsalted)
    • 50g Dark chocolate chips
  5. 5

    Preheat the oven to 150°C (fan 130°C, gas mark 2).

    Beat the cream cheese in a bowl until soft and smooth. Add the eggs one by one with the vanilla extract. Fold in the crème fraîche.

    • 450g Cream cheese soft
    • 4 Egg(s) (free range) large
    • 1tsp Vanilla extract
    • 225g Crème fraîche

    Melt the white chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Remove from the water and beat until a little cooler. Add to the cream cheese mix and fold in gently. If the chocolate becomes a little lumpy do not worry.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 225g White chocolate

    Sprinkle the remaining raspberries over the chilled base of the cheesecake.

    For this step you'll need:

    • 150g Raspberries fresh, plus extra for decoration
  9. 9

    Pour the chocolate and cream cheese mixture into the tin and bang down on a firm surface to remove any air bubbles. Drizzle the raspberry coulis onto the cheesecake mix and swirl using the tip of a knife to give a marble effect.

    Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour or until the centre is just firm.

    Allow to rest for several hours to firm up. When ready to serve use a warm palate knife to release the cheesecake form the tin, before turning out the cake and serve topped with fresh raspberries.
