- Cooking time:
- Preheat the oven to 170°C/150°C fan/Gas 3. Grease and line a 20cm spring form cake tin with greaseproof paper. Melt 75g of the butter and mix with the oatcakes, then spoon into the tin and flatten. Chill for 10 minutes.
- Meanwhile, heat the milk and mustard for 1-2 minutes. Add the Stilton and breadcrumbs, season and stir until most of the cheese has melted. Allow to cool for 15 minutes then beat in the egg yolks.
- Whisk the egg whites until stiff then fold into the sauce. Spoon over the oatcake base and bake for 50 minutes until just set, covering with foil after 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a pan and fry the parsnip, carrots and shallots for 5-6 minutes. Pour over the orange zest and juice and the stock and bring to the boil. Simmer for 15 minutes, until the vegetables are tender and most of the juice has been absorbed. Stir in the cranberry sauce and cook for a further 3 minutes.
- To serve, spoon the cooked vegetables over the cheesecake and scatter with parsley.
