Baked Cheesecake with Mixed Berries

This cheesecake is based on the traditional English baked cheesecake with a colourful juicy topping of mixed berries. A mixture of fresh berries is best but a good alternative is one variety such as strawberries or raspberries.

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 80-100g Digestive Biscuits, crushed
  • 100g Butter, unsalted
  • 300g Curd Cheese
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 Lemon, juice and grated zest
  • 2 heaped tbsp Icing Sugar, sieved
  • 350g Mixed Red Berries

Method

  1. Grease a 27cm flan ring and a baking sheet or springform cake tin.
  2. Melt the butter and mix in the biscuit crumbs.
  3. Press into the base of the prepared ring/tin.
  4. Place the curd cheese in a mixing bowl and break it down before adding the egg, lemon and sugar.
  5. Beat well until evenly blended and turn onto the crumb base.
  6. Bake 180C Gas 4 for 20 mins.
  7. Cool then refrigerate, preferably overnight.
  8. Plate up and arrange the mixed berries on the top.
  9. Serve with a red fruit coulis if desired

Tips

A fruit topping is nicest but an alternative could be a mix of sour cream and whipped double cream, sprinkled with toasted flaked almonds.
70g of raisins could also be added to this alternative before being baked.
