About the bake

This vegan cheesecake is one of our favourite vegan recipes. It's so easy to make and is perfect for serving as an after dinner pudding. This cheesecake makes a creamy consistency and the base gives a nice biscuit crunch. We've used hobnob biscuits as our base, alternatively you could use lotus biscuits, these too are vegan.

Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat your oven to 190ºc/ 170ºc fan/gas mark 5 and line an 8" spring-form pan with parchment paper.

    Using a food processor, mix together the vegan butter,  light muscovado and vanilla bean paste until  fine breadcrumbs form. Then press the mixture into the bottom of the spring form pan.

  3. Step 3:

    Bake for 10 minutes then and remove and leave to cool at room temperature.

    In a large bowl, beat together the vegan cream cheese, soft tofu, sugar, vanilla bean paste and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.

  5. Step 5:

    Slowly add the corn flour and plain flour a little at a time until fully incorporated.
