Bake Off 2019: How to make a spiced winter cheesecake for dairy week

There’s a new theme on the Great British Bake Off tonight – dairy week.

Yes, this episode is heavy on the lactose.

Bakers in the tent have to tackle a dairy cake for the signature, a Tudor themed technical and for the showstopper, it’s an assortment of mishti – a type if Indian sweet.

To get involved with the theme, we have a recipe for winter spiced cheesecake from Patisserie Valerie.

They’ve already shown us how to make a fruit cake, biscotti and Foccacia this series so we are excited about this creamy concoction.

Apparently, this one is a best seller and they have a secret spice blend but you can make it to your own taste with warming spices like cinnamon, mixed spice and nutmeg.

It sounds perfect for the winter months but you can get some practice in now.
