Instructions

  • Line the base and sides of a round springform cake tin with greaseproof paper or silicone sheet.
  • First make shortbread or a biscuit base (recipe in notes)...

To make the Base

  • Beat the dairyfree margarine and sugar together.  Stir in the flour and once a soft dough forms, press it into the lined tin and bake at 180C for 25minutes.  Set aside to cool.

To make the Cream Filling.

  • While your base sets, heat the coconut milk until just warm.
  • Pour into a bowl over the broken up white chocolate and stir until melted.
  • While this chocolate mixture cools, beat together the room temperature cream cheese and apricot jam.
  • Keep the stand mixer running on low and slowly pour in the chocolate mixture. Pour over the cooled base and leave in the fridge to set overnight.
  • When set, arrange seasonal berries on the top and scatter over some grate white chocolate.
