Red Velvet Cheesecake



12 portion(s)


  • 375 grams Choc Ripple Biscuits, (1.5 packets)
  • 125 grams unsalted butter, (homemade is perfect)


  • 200 grams raw sugar
  • 500 grams cream cheese, (2 blocks or tubs)
  • 250 grams sour cream
  • 20 grams cocoa
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tsp liquid red food colouring
  • 3 eggs


  • 300 grams whipped cream
  • chocolate shards to decorate

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Grease and line the base of a 23cm springform tin and take cream cheese and sour cream out of the fridge to get to room temperature

    2. Melt butter for 1 minute/80 degrees/speed 3 (check that it is completely melted, if not add some extra time)

    3. Add biscuits to the TM bowl and crush for 5 seconds/speed 9.  The mixture should have the consistancy of damp sand, if not, crush for another 5 seconds.

    4. Tip mixture into springform tin.  Press around base of tin and up the sides using your hands or a spoon.  Place in fridge for 10 minutes to chill.

    5. Preheat oven to 150 degrees (fanforced)

  2. Filling
  3. 1. Wash and dry mixing bowl. Mill sugar 10 seconds/speed 9 then scrape the sides of the bowl.

    2. Add cream cheese and sour cream and mix 20 seconds/speed 6 then scrape the sides of the bowl.

    3. Add cocoa powder, vanilla essence and food colouring into the TM bowl and mix 20 seconds/speed 5. Scrape the sides of the bowl again.

    4. Add eggs and mix 20 seconds/speed 5

    5. Pour on top of prepared biscuit base and spread the filling out to create an even layer. Bake for 60 minutes or until set (it is ready when it looks set in the centre with a slight wobble)

    6. Allow to cool to in oven with door slightly ajar.  When cool, the fridge to cool overnight .

  4. Finishing
  5. When cool, decorate with chocolate shards and whipped cream (I like to add a tablespoon of icing sugar and a few drops of vanilla extract to my cream when whipping)
