Should you’re good at adorning (I’m not!) you may even add the Clementine leaves to the highest of the cake 🍊I’ve added the recipe under, hit like if that is your kind of pudding!! Amy xxx
For the candied clementine slices:
200g caster sugar
For the bottom:
16 chocolate digestives
For the filling:
600g smooth cheese
300ml double cream
160g icing sugar
2-3tbls of clementine syrup (no matter is leftover from cooking the slices)
Juice of four clementines
zest of four clementines
First make the candied clementines. Combine the water and sugar in a big saucepan and convey to the boil. Lower the ends off the clementines and lower into slices, roughly four or 5 slices per clementine.
When the water is boiling, add the slices to the pan and simmer on a low warmth for 1 and a half hours. You will have to verify on them each 20 minutes or so. You’ll know when they’re performed because the water will turn out to be a thick, gloopy syrup and can have decreased by about half . The clementine skins will probably be smooth.
Take away them rigorously from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Pour the syrup right into a cup.As soon as utterly cool, place them (not touching one another) in a Tupperware container and place within the fridge with the syrup till you want them.
Now to make the bottom: Put the biscuits in a meals processor and blitz to crumbs.
Soften the butter and pour over the biscuit crumbs. Combine completely till the butter is evenly unfold and the crumbs are all coated.
Tip into the underside of a 25cm spring type tin and unfold evenly, urgent down firmly with the again of a spoon.
Now you can also make the filling: Place the smooth cheese, double cream, clementine syrup (it’s possible you’ll must heat this somewhat within the microwave), clementine juice and zest right into a mixing bowl. Sieve the icing sugar into the bowl and utilizing a hand mixer, mix for 1 minute.
Pour the combination over the biscuit base and unfold it evenly with a spatula.
Put it within the fridge in a single day. Take away the surface of the spring type tin and serve!
