Marco Pierre White's glorious 'Frankie's' Cheesecake

This is a favourite dish at Frankie's, the chain of London restaurants I own with jockey Frankie Dettori


Preheat the oven to 160C/gas 3. In a large mixing bowl, blend together the crème fraîche, full-fat soft cheese, eggs, the seeds of the vanilla pod and sugar. Mix the melted butter with the crushed digestive biscuits.

Place the crushed biscuit mixture in the bottom of a 12in baking tin, thereby making the base of the cake. Layer the cheese mixture on top of the biscuit base.

Bake for 20 minutes in the oven. Make sure the cheesecake does not colour during cooking.
