Orkney Fudge Cheesecake


Orkney Fudge Cheesecake

Sue Lawrence has long been one of my favourite food writers, she is a woman of great taste when it comes to good food. This recipe comes from her A Cooks Tour of Scotland cookbook, a book close to my heart, and one that I’ve found very interesting to read, a sort of short history of parts of eating in Scotland.
In 2006 when this book came out, it was clear to me that no diet or healthy eating regime was going to stop me trying this cheesecake. Sue says she would crawl oven broken glass for a slice, and that is definitely good enough recommendation for me! I’ve made it several times since 2006, once or twice a year, although not too often considering it’s calories and my Hubby’s penchant for it! I make it the day before to get the molten fudge bits. If you can’t lay your hands on Orkney fudge I’m sure any full flavoured fudge would be lovely. I do hope to get to Orkney one of these days, but in the meantime I’ll make their gorgeous, toffee, creamy, local speciality cheesecake.
You’ll find the recipe here at UKTV Food.

Looks and sounds fudgetastic and even better that you're able to get hold of the lovely orkney fudge to make it authentic. Hope you're all well. x

This is the second cheesecake I have seen in less than 24 hour and though I am not a cheesecake fan. I am beginning to feel like I want to have a slice :)

That looks like a devastating piece of cheesecake. It would certainly be dangerous to make more than once a year. Broken glass, indeed!

Coby said...

What's not to love?:) This looks like a cheesecake that you *should* serve up in slivers, but that you want to serve up in WEDGES! hehe a 'thin wedge' for me thanks;)

If one is willing to crawl over broken glass for a slice, it has to be delicious :). The texture on this looks addicting and rich!

Teresa said...

I'd say crawling over broken glass just about covers it! Hilarious. I'm a cheesecake lover and this recipe sounds amazing.

Mary said...

Thank you all for your comments :)

I recently had this recipe at a B&B in Paisley and it was amazing! The woman at the B&B told me about the book and I've since ordered it. I did notice, though, that there wasn't a recipe for Orkney Fudge in the cookbook. What do you use for the Orkney Fudge? Or do you have a recipe that you'd be willing to share?

Kelly-Jane said...

Hello Miss Delarue, thank you for visiting.

Orkney fudge is a bought confection. Do replace it with any well flavoured fudge.

Hope this helps!
