A scrumptious no-bake Battenberg Cheesecake with a Battenberg shell, biscuit base, almond and jam flavoured cheesecake filling and extra. 

One of the crucial extremely requested and viral bakes that there have ever been… the Battenberg Cheesecake. Marrying all of your favorite Battenberg bits into cheesecake type – what might be higher?!

Battenberg 

Battenberg is a kind of truffles that’s an absolute cult traditional, and everybody will recognise the long-lasting sq. formed vibrant sponges. It’s a cake that I like, nevertheless it’s not one I usually make because the steps take far lengthy than others (however don’t fear, a recipe is on it’s method!). 

The cake is often a light-weight sponge with an almond flavour, colored pink and yellow, sandwiched with jam and lined in marzipan. This cheesecake recipe is designed to copy that, in as some ways as potential, while nonetheless being a cheesecake. 

I used to be at all times informed that the chequered markings on emergency service automobiles are known as battenberg markings after the cake, which is sort of cool. And I’ve made a good few Battenberg truffles in my time however I’ve swapped up the colors and flavours to go well with themes – even a police cake with blue and yellow! 

Biscuit Base

As a result of I went with the concept of placing Battenberg cake across the sides of the cake tin, I stuffed the center with a biscuit base as an alternative. Kind of like my kitkat cheesecake, I simply wished to fill the center considerably so there may be nonetheless a piece of biscuit base concerned. 

I discovered it greatest to sandwich the items of battenberg across the edge, sort within the finely blitzed biscuits combined with the melted butter, after which press down. I used digestives as they’re probably the most traditional biscuit to make use of in my view, however you should use no matter you need, actually. For those who used a chocolate lined biscuit, or a stuffed biscuit, be certain that to make use of about 2/3 of the butter. 

Cheesecake Filling

The cheesecake filling is a part of the enjoyable in terms of this battenberg cheesecake as a result of it’s meant to signify the colors of the battenberg sponge, but in addition look fairly and style superb. I made the yellow half style like almond, and the pink half style like a strawberry jam. 

The almond is stronger in flavour in comparison with the jam, however you’ll be able to add extra jam in case you favor or use a raspberry/strawberry flavouring rather than the jam. The yellow and pink colouring is solely designed to make it look extra just like the sponge, because the jam received’t color the cheesecake combine sufficient itself. 

I at all times use sturdy colors resembling this yellow meals colouring and this pink meals colouring in order that it’s a must to use a minute quantity within the recipe. 

Ornament

Because the cheesecake is tremendous straightforward to get out and in of the tin with the cake shell, it makes the ornament actually fast and simple as nicely. I went for a easy ornament of sweetened whipped cream with slices of mini Battenberg truffles as a result of it seemed rattling cute. 

As at all times, ornament is fully as much as you – I simply do one thing easy to complete off how the bake and recipe look, however you don’t have to fret an excessive amount of. You need to use sprinkles, melted chocolate, an additional swirl of jam into the highest of the cheesecake and many others – it’s as much as you.
