1 x gluten free Dark Chocolate & Orange Brownie traybake – buy in our online shop or use our recipe from Honeybuns Gluten free Baking book

500g full-fat cream cheese

300ml double cream

100g icing sugar

2 tsps vanilla powder

Grated zest of one orange

30g chocolate chips or buttons


If making the brownie, follow our recipe as per the instructions and then leave to cool completely.

For the cheesecake topping, add the cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla powder to a large mixing bowl and use a wooden spoon to very lightly beat together.

In a separate bowl, use a handheld whisk to whip the double cream until thick. Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese and mix well.

Spread the cheesecake mixture over the brownie traybake and use a spatula or palette knife to smooth. Scatter over the orange zest and chocolate buttons.

Pop the traybake into the fridge to chill and firm up – it will need a couple of hours minimum but will keep well overnight. Keep chilled until serving, then cut into slices and share. Enjoy!
