Brownie bottom strawberry cheesecake

What better combo than strawberry and chocolate...? Exactly my thinking. ;-)



Since it is an incredibly busy weekend (busy parents with busy kids and so on...), I took a shortcut and used a mix to bake my bottom layer of chocolate brownies. Just add soft butter and water to it and you're done. Easy peasy. Bake for 30 minutes in a 180 degrees oven. Let it cool down before you continue.




Place strawberries on top and start making the filling for the cheesecake. I used 500 gr of low-fat soft cheese, 100 gr of cream cheese, 125 ml of freshly whipped cream, some vanilla sugar and 3 gelatine sheets (melted in some orange juice). Spoon it all together and pour it onto the brownie base.  To add some more colour, I heated up some strawberry jam and poured it on top. Let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. My kids thought it was pure heaven... and what about you? Get cracking if you want to surprise your mum tomorrow! #mothersday
