Elderflower cheesecake – naughty but nice

Today I made an elderflower cheesecake with some of this year’s elderflower cordial. I don’t often take photos of food, but this was so bloody nice I couldn’t resist.

I got the recipe from Alison Delaney’s great foraging blog Nibbling on Nature and Alison in turn borrowed it from Kirstin Rodgers’ website the English can cook.

I’m not a great cake maker (or cake lover) but the recipe is fairly easy to follow – you need to know how to crush and mix things and make whipped cream and that’s it.

To keep to the foraging theme, I made elderflower and cherry coulee courtesy of the local farmer who for some reason has planted loads of cherry trees along all his footpaths. Yum yum!
