The weekend is nearly here and for those of you who’d like a treat, I’ve got the perfect recipe – Raspberry Cheesecake Bites with Chocolate Ganache.

It’s quite similar to the Raspberry & Basil Chocolate Ganache Bites which you can find here – Basil Chocolate & Fresh Raspberries Ganache Cake but different at the same time.

There’s a crunchy biscuit layer, cheesecake layer and then the chocolate ganache layer. It is delicious! And it’s a great way to use the summer berries!

  • 300g/10oz digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 400g/1lb mascarpone
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 100g/3.5oz butter, melted
  • 2tbsp powder sugar
  • 200g/7oz milk chocolate
  • 1 cup double cream

Preparation:

  1. In a bowl combine the biscuits and butter and layer them in a baking tray. Refrigerate.
  2. In a separate bowl combine the mascarpone, sour cream, powder sugar and raspberries. Mix well.
  3. Spread the cheesecake mixture on top of the biscuits layer.
  4. Finally, make the chocolate ganache, using the bain marie method, gently melt the chocolate and the add the cream. Leave on a side to cool down.
  5. Add the chocolate ganache on top of the cheesecake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  6. Cut into small bites when serving.

Enjoy!

Tip: I love the combination of white chocolate and raspberries, so next time why not try making white chocolate ganache instead!

Egg, Cheese & Tomato Mini Galettes

Mummy’s Fast & Easy

Happy Thursday guys!
Today’s recipe of the day is quick, easy, tasty and cheesy!
You probably know I love making (and eating) galettes, especially savoury ones so the other day I decided to make a mini version of these goodies.
I used some sweet buffalo tomatoes, feta cheese and eggs, the same dough I usually make for galettes, the only difference was that instead of making one big galette, I made four small ones. 
These are perfect for breakfast, but also for lunch, dinner and for snacking in between meals.
They are light and tasty but at the same tine you can taste the butter and cheese which is a great combination!
