Dive into the creamy luxury of this Nutella cheesecake, a dessert so rich and smooth, it’s sure to tantalize your taste buds. Crowned with succulent fresh strawberries, it’s the perfect balance of decadent chocolate and zesty fruit.


For the Cheesecake Filling:

600 g Cream Cheese
200 g Sugar
150 g Sour Cream
4 Eggs
1 tbsp Vanilla Essence
100 g Dark Chocolate, melted
20-30 g Cocoa Powder
For the Crust:

70 g Butter, melted
280 g Biscuits, finely crushed
For the Topping:

180 g Nutella
Fresh Strawberries, for garnish

Begin by preheating your oven to 160°C with the fan setting on. Combine the melted butter and crushed biscuits, pressing them into the bottom of a 22 cm (9 inch) springform pan to form the crust.

Parbake the crust for 10 minutes to set. In the meantime, let’s create the luscious filling.

In a large bowl, blend the cream cheese with sour cream and sugar until smooth. Crack in the eggs, one by one, whisking well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla essence, then fold in the melted dark chocolate and cocoa powder until just combined.

Pour this rich, chocolatey filling over the crust in the springform pan. Seal the pan with aluminum foil, ready for its water bath.

Place the wrapped springform in a deep baking tray. Fill the tray with hot water halfway up the sides of the pan, creating a gentle environment for the cheesecake to bake.

Bake at 160°C for 55-65 minutes. The cheesecake should have a slight wobble at its center when it’s ready.

Allow the cheesecake to cool, then refrigerate it for a minimum of 6 hours, though overnight is ideal for setting.

Once the cheesecake has chilled, lavish the top with a generous layer of Nutella, spreading it to cover the surface.

Decorate with fresh strawberries just before serving. Their bright, sweet tang is a delightful contrast to the deep chocolate flavor.

Slice into this heavenly Nutella cheesecake, each forkful enriched with chocolate and crowned with the freshness of strawberries. Indulge in every bite! 🍫🍓🍰
