Prosecco cheesecake:

Ingredients for the base:

  • 200g biscuits (digestive type)
  • 55g margarine

Ingredients for the cream:

  • 300g fresh cheese
  • 50g fresh cream
  • ½ a teaspoon of corn starch
  • 50g icing sugar
  • 100g Sgajo Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry
  • 1 vanilla bean

As decoration

  • seasonal fruit (a tip, choose colourful fruit such as strawberries, currants, raspberries)

Let’s prepare our Prosecco DOC Treviso cheesecake starting from the base made with biscuits and margarine. Start by crushing the biscuits, add the melted margarine, mix and then pour the mixture into the mould you will use for the cake. Flatten the mixture well and place it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Next prepare the cream, dissolve half a teaspoon of cornstarch in water, meanwhile heat the cream in a small saucepan without coming to the boil. As soon as it is hot enough, add the cream and mix well with an electric whisk. While it cools, work the fresh cheese into a bowl, then pour in Sgajo Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry organic wine, the seeds extracted from the vanilla bean and finally the icing sugar. Mix well and incorporate the cream.


Now take the cake base out of the fridge and spread the creamy mixture over it. Leave in the fridge for at least 4-6 hours. Once solidified, decorate with coloured fruit as desired.


And the spring lunch is ready, add a good glass of Prosecco DOC Treviso to accompany it!!!
