If there’s one domestic goddess you can trust when it comes to maximum flavor and minimal effort, it’s Great Britain’s Nigella Lawson. She’s been serving up tantalizing treats since 1998 and her Nutella Cheesecake from her 2008 cookbook, Nigellissima, doesn’t disappoint.
When you think “cheesecake”, perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is a a finicky baking affair in the kitchen. But this recipe requires only six ingredients, all of which you can easily find at your grocery store. What’s more, you don’t even need to turn the oven on.
Here’s all you need to create this chocolatey goodness:
- Digestive biscuits (or graham crackers)
- Unsalted butter
- Cream cheese
- Powder sugar
To begin, blend the first four ingredients together in a food processor, before pressing them into your cake pan to form an easy crust. Then, set it in the fridge to firm up and chill.
Next, whip together the Nutella, cream cheese and sugar to form the filling. Once it’s ready, pour it into your chilled base and keep it in the fridge for up to four hours, or overnight.
That’s it! Creamy, chocolate-y and quick – your Nutella Cheesecake is ready for you to enjoy,
And it’s the perfect treat to make if you’re a woman on the go. You can whip it up in no time and have a ready dessert after a long day at work. You can even serve it when your girlfriends come over – you just might want to double the recipe and make two. It’s that good!
