English Cheesecake Company

I’ve been placing orders through the English Cheesecake Company for well over a year now, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to write about how amazing they are! I can’t even remember how I came across them in the first place, I think it may have just been a good old google search….

Anyway, I came across their website. They have hundreds of amazing cakes to choose from and do seasonal versions for Valentine’s Day, Easter, Halloween and Christmas. Any flavour cheesecake you can think of, it’s likely that English Cheesecake Company have it; and more! From After Dinner Mint to Pina Colada to Pecan Pie to Salted Caramel Toffee Swirl, you are bound to come across several flavours you can’t resist giving a try!

Aside from cheesecakes, they also sell delicious fudge cakes and these amazing little inventions called cupcake cheesecakes which are regular sized sponge cupcakes with a cheesecake centre and topping – you must try them! My favourite of the cheesecake cupcakes are the Lotus Caramelised Biscoff Cheesecake Minis.

If cheesecake really is your thing, they also stock humungous cheesecakes for weddings and parties which serve up to 60 people. Flavours include chocolate fudge profiterole, chocolate cookie mudslide and chocolate truffle strawberry shortbread.

Here are some of the delicious flavours my family and I have sampled over the past year or so:

The Gold Digger – Vanilla cheesecake covered with Dulce De Leche toffee on a chocolate biscuit base, one half is covered with crunchy chocolate honeycomb and the other half is covered with shortbread chunks drizzled in chocolate! Both halves were amazing but the chocolate honeycomb side was my favourite!

Cinnamon Bun Streusel cheesecake – This one is my husbands favourite so we have ordered this one a couple of times and it’s unlike any other cheesecake I have tried! On the bottom is cinnamon sponge topped with vanilla cheesecake covered with cinnamon streusel crumble and then drizzled with white icing!

Butterscotch caramel crunch – This is one of my brother in law’s favourites – a chocolate cookie base topped with vanilla cheesecake, Dulce De Leche toffee and LOTS of dime bars then drizzled with a chocolate fudge sauce!!

Cookie Dough Collision – This one is my absolute favourite as I am obsessed with cookie dough! In the middle of the vanilla cheesecake is a huge chunk of cookie dough! The cheesecake is then topped with cookie chunks and dark chocolate chips and then drizzled in chocolate sauce – IT IS AMAZING!!!

Lotus Caramelised Biscoff Cheesecake Minis – These were the first cheesecakes I ordered from English Cheesecake Company. My sister and I were having the day off together and I ordered these as a surprise for us to scoff our faces whilst enjoying our duvet day together – they did not disappoint! When they turned up we unpackaged them and struggled to wait until they had defrosted until we started eating them! This selection box consists of 6 cheesecake filled Lotus biscuit topped cupcakes and 6 cheesecake minis. I would definitely order them again! Really tasty! My sister asked me about them again the other day as she remembered how good they were!

Rocky Road Cheesecake – I wanted to give this one a go as my sister loves Rocky Road! It’s a chocolate cookie base, covered with a layer of chocolate fudge, vanilla cheesecake and chocolate crumb. On top there’s loads of shortbread chunks, malted chocolate balls and marshmallows all with a chocolate drizzle on top!

12 Christmas Cheesecake minis – I ordered these for over Christmas for when people are popping over so I always had a dessert on hand just in case and with this selection box I would have every taste catered for! This selection box is a Christmas edition so unfortunately it’s not available on the website anymore – the flavours were Luxury Mince Pie, Red Velvet, Salted Caramel, Honeycomb Smash, Profiterole Snowball, Mandarin Mayhem, Rasberry Pavlova, Peppermint Bark, Festive Chocolate Log Truffle, Gingerbread Man, Cranberry and Lime and Christmas Chocolate Star.

Valentine’s Red Velvet Cheesecake – This was my most recent purchase – my husband and I started this for our dessert on Valentine’s Day and I have still got around half left in the freezer! This one is another one of my favourites so far – The vanilla cheesecake is filled with cocoa filled red velvet sponge and topped with a layer of chocolate fudge. On the top are lovely red and black chocolate hearts, mini chocolate heart pieces and red and white sprinkles. Definitely one to try!! Although it is a Valentine’s Day edition, they do also offer the regular Simply….Red Velvet Cheesecake as an alternative.

Easter Cheesecake Mini’s

A lovely selection of 12 mini’s – 6 mini cheesecakes and 6 mini cheesecake cupcakes. Ideal for serving to guests over Easter and can be kept in the freezer until you need them! The cheesecake cupcakes are delicious!

Prices range from £25 to £36 depending on whether you go for a traditional 12 slice cheesecake or 12 mini cheesecakes – keep an eye open for any of their “Cake of the moment”offers as when you buy a cheesecake with this offer, you get a free cheesecake added to your order! Flavours depend on what is being prepared on that day, I got a free one with my Christmas Cheesecake Minis order and the flavour I got was Raspberry and pomegranate. I gave this one to my Mum to enjoy over Christmas and unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of it before I sent it on its way!

When you place your order you can add personalised chocolate discs to the order (milk or white chocolate in round or heart shaped discs) and gift boxes and gift cards. You can also add “pre-portioning” to your order which means they will cut up the cheesecake into sections for you – this makes it much, much easier if you are freezing the majority of the cake and then just getting a few pieces out at a time. It is almost impossible to cut the cheesecake when it is frozen and you should not defrost it in order to cut it and then re-freeze it for obvious reasons. So I always add the pre-portioning to my order – it cost’s £1.99 and is more than worth it in my opinion.

Another thing I love about English Cheesecake is that delivery is included in the price (unless you want it delivered on a Saturday). You can select your nominated delivery date (they don’t deliver on Sunday’s or Monday’s though) and if you order early enough you can even get next day delivery! (An additional charge of £1.99 applies). The Cheesecakes are really well packaged in a polystyrene container and are delivered frozen with dry ice to keep them cool.

A highly recommended company with amazing products and brilliant customer service! Check out their website and drool away!!
