berry cheesecake

My son had this idea for this spectacular dessert. He wanted a fresh berry cheesecake and I thought white and dark chocolate layers combined with different berries. This dessert was inspired by his triple layer icecream cake.

White chocolate cheesecake formed the bottom layer over a ginger-tinted biscuit base and I started thinking it might work to have a milk chocolate mousse over the top. In the end I decided on a bavarois because well, it sounded fancy and I wanted to try it, and it is supposed to result in a creamier and airier texture. You may well ask what a bavarois is? Well it is Bavarian cream….. basically a crème anglaise with gelatine and whipped cream folded through. Light and airy and very creamy. For the fruits I used raspberries in the white chocolate (as it’s a great pairing) and blueberry with the milk chocolate – frozen because they behave better. Fresh strawberries on top to really bring out the colour. You could use dark chocolate for the top layer (my son prefers milk chocolate) and you could top it with fresh whipped cream, but honestly, I don’t think it needs it.  Continue reading
