Makes 1 x 24cm cake

Sue Lawrence's naughty no-cook cheesecake has a smooth cream cheese topping flecked with chewy chunks of fudge, piled on an oaty biscuit base


1. Lightly butter a 24cm springform cake tin.

2. Make the base by combining the biscuits and butter and pressing into the base of the tin.

3. Beat the cream cheese until soft.

4. Grate 250g of the fudge (I use my food processor) and tip into the cream cheese. Combine gently - folding in slowly - with the cream.

5. Chop the remaining 50g fudge and scatter over the biscuit base.

6. Spoon the cream mixture over the top and cover. Chill for at least 6 hours (24 hours if possible) before carefully decanting and serving in wedges.

Great recipe, but I agree, up the soft cheese in proportion to thwe cream - which needs to be whipped more than lightly. I also prefer a little more biscuit base with more butter - it didn't hold together very well.

Thanks for the comments, the fudge has now been added to the ingredient list.

If you google this recipe it says you need - 300g/10 oz Orkney Fudge (or Shetland Fudge which comes in different flavours)

No fudge is mentioned in the ingredients, can any type be used?

I took Susan's advice and used her measurements and the cheesecake was perfect even though I used a 22cm tin instead of a 24cm tin. I made it well in advance and chilled it for 24 hours in the fridge. Tasted surprisingly light. Not too sweet. No leftovers; everyone loved it.

I have made this recipe for the first time, i have adapted it slightly after reading some of the comments, i used 440g of mascapone & 400ml of double cream, also only 250g of fudge, a little tip, put the fudge in the freezer it makes it easier to grate, all the family loved it, even my husband and he don't do puddings.....TRY IT......YUMMY....

i've made this cheescake as the recipie says and have been asked a few times to make it again.

I have this recipe printed out from sometime ago, its 300g of fudge. I have made this cheesecake quite a few times, and its always been a hit and is often requested! I use 500ml of double cream, and it still works. I always make the day before to make sure it sets. Ignore the bad reviews...its a fantastic cheesecake! I would rate this 5/5!!

Rubbish - a complete waste of money, as not enough guidance, don't follow this recipe, the mixture won't be thick enough and will collapse. I would recommend using less cream (400ml) and more cream cheese (400g) and also whipping the cream a lot more than lightly, so it is quite thick. Someone should really vet this website and the recipes more.

i think 3 and a half because it does not look to bad

What fudge, home made or shop bought? no mention of if in the ingredients so can't rate it

For such an easy cheesecake this gave me the most compliments I have had for one ! It is delicious and so light as to make you think it is sin free....

Make this with homemade tablet. Family love it. Many of Sue's Scottish recipes are superb.
