Indulge in the simplicity and deliciousness of a White Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake – a speedy and effortless dessert that requires no oven or gelatin. Perfect for lazy Sundays.


For the base

  • 300 g of digestive biscuits optionally mixed with amaretti
  • 140 g of butter

For the filling

  • 500 g mascarpone or cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 80 g sugar
  • 60 ml Amaretto liqueur

For garnish

  • 6 amaretti crumbled digestive biscuits, or toasted almonds
  • 50 g of white chocolate
  • 30 ml milk


For the base

  • Finely grind the biscuits along with the butter, adding a little water if necessary.
  • Line a 20 cm mold with the biscuit mixture, ensuring the biscuits also form a layer along the sides of the mold.
  • Place the prepared mold into the freezer for a while.

For the filling

  • Whip the cream cheese and egg together with the liqueur until it achieves a smooth consistency.
  • Add the crumbled amaretti biscuits into the whipped cream mixture, ensuring thorough mixing.
  • Take out the mold from the freezer and pour the creamy filling into it, then return it to the freezer.

For garnish

  • Melt the white chocolate using 20-30 ml of milk, then allow it to cool.
  • Drizzle the melted chocolate over the cake, and add some amaretti biscuits as decoration.
  • Place the cake back in the refrigerator for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy!


  1. The biscuit base: Crush the digestive biscuits finely and line your cake mold with the biscuit mixture evenly, making sure it covers both the base and sides of the mold. 

  2. Chill the base: Optionally chill the biscuit base for a while to make it easier to add the filling without it sinking into the crust.

  3. Whip the filling until smooth: When mixing the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and Amaretto liqueur for the filling, ensure you whip them gently together until smooth and well combined. 

  4. Chill before serving: If you’re preparing the cake for guests, don’t leave it till the last minute. Remember that it needs at least 2 hours to set though it may need up to 4 hours. This will make it easier to slice and serve.

Storage Tips

Store the cake in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Alternatively, you can freeze the whole cake or leftovers for up to 3 months.  As regards leftovers, I usually don’t freeze anything that has stayed in the refrigerator or outside for too long. If I plan to eat only half of it, then I cut and quickly store the other half in the freezer.

How to serve the Amaretto Cake?

Plating each slice of cake individually on a dessert plate allows for a more personalized presentation. Before adding any toppings, consider asking your guests for their preferences, as some may prefer the cake as is, while others may enjoy additional garnishes like powdered sugar or berries on the side.

When it comes to beverages, coffee, tea, or a glass of Amaretto liqueur are all excellent pairings for this cake
