After much raving and requests, we decided to share our much-loved Nutella and ricotta cheesecake recipe.  Just promise not to make it better than us!

150g digestive biscuits
50g Amaretti biscuits
Sunflower oil, for greasing

Portico Nutella and Ricotta Cheesecake in 10 Simple Steps:

  1. Heat the oven to Gas mark 6/200C/180C (fan assisted).
  2. Melt the butter in a pan.
  3. Finely grind the the biscuits, stir in the butter and then press very firmly into the base of a 20cm round loose-bottomed cake tin.
  4. Bake for 6 mins. Cool, then wipe around the inside of the tin with a little oil on kitchen paper.
  5. Warm the Nutella in a bowl over steaming water until spreadable (ok, more spreadable). Smooth evenly over the biscuit base.
  6. Beat the ricotta, cream, milk, sugar and egg yolks together. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites.
  7. Stir the ricotta mixture, then gently fold in the egg whites.
