For the Nutella cheesecake

  • 300 g Full fat cream cheese
  • 100 g Nutella
  • 1 Egg large
  • 65 g Caster sugar

For the blondie batter

  • 200 g Butter unsalted
  • 300 g Golden caster sugar or regular caster sugar
  • 150 g White chocolate broken into pieces
  • 3 Eggs large
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 225 g Plain flour


  • Pre-heat your oven to 160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4 and grease and line a 12" x 9" traybake tin
  • To make the cheesecake filling mix together the full fat cream cheese, caster sugar, egg and Nutella with a hand whisk or electric hand whisk until smooth. Set aside
  • Melt the butter with the golden caster sugar in a pan on a low heat
  • Once the butter has melted, take the pan off the heat and add the white chocolate. Leave it for a couple of minutes to melt, then stir together. Leave the mixture to cool for 5 minutes
  • Break the eggs into a bowl and add them to the mixture, keep whisking as you pour them in to make sure the mixture doesn't cook the eggs. Then stir in the vanilla extract
  • Add the flour and whisk it in
  • Pour the blondie mixture into the traybake tin, then add the cheesecake mixture on top in spoonfuls all over
  • Using a butter knife, swirl the mixture around to create the swirl
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until they are golden brown all over. Using a skewer inserted in the centre doesn’t give a clear indication that they are done because blondies are meant to be gooey and almost a little under cooked. It is better to use a cocktail stick, it should have several moist crumbs on it but not be wet. Blondies are the white chocolate version of brownies and they are not like cake. They will also set more as they cool down
  • Leave it to cool completely before cutting into squares
  • Store in the fridge and eat them within 3 days



If you would like to use a 8" or 9" square tin instead, reduce the recipe by one third. So you will need:
  • 135g Butter
  • 200g Golden caster sugar
  • 100g White chocolate
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¾ tsp Vanilla
  • 150g Plain flour
They will also need less time to bake, depending on your oven, I'd suggest 20-25 minutes.
