No Bake Millionaire’s Shortbread Cheesecake

Cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts, and whenever I head to a bakery, I always reach for millionaire shortbread.

So, I thought this year with my 26th birthday in lockdown, why not make a millionaire’s shortbread cheesecake?

This recipe is surprisingly easy, and doesn’t require baking, so it is the ideal light and fluffy cheesecake for you to enjoy this weekend.

Millionaire’s shortbread Cheesecake


For shortbread (unless you buy some)

180g plain flour

125g butter

55g sugar, plus extra for dusting

250ml caramel

450ml double cream

450g cream cheese

50g soured cream

2tsp vanilla extract

130g icing sugar

200g dark chocolate

1. If making shortbread: preheat the oven to 190C. In a bowl, mix flour, sugar and butter with your hands until it feels like breadcrumbs. Add to a lined cake tin and press down. Chill for 15 minutes before baking for 15 minutes.

2. If using ready made shortbread, simply crush shortbread and mix with melted butter. Press into a cake tin and chill.

3. In a bowl add 250ml double cream and whip until stiff peaks form.

4. In a second bowl, beat together cream cheese and spited cream, then add vanilla, icing sugar, and a pinch of salt. Fold in whipped cream.

5. Take the cake tin out of the fridge, and add the cake mixture. Chill for 4 hours or overnight.

6. Pour caramel over the cake, chill for 10 minutes.

7. Microwave 200ml double cream, and add dark chocolate, stirring to melt. Pour this ganache over your cake.

8. Enjoy!
