Recipe for a dark winters day.

Hello there,

Welcome to another blog post!

I decided to mix up the blog post today and I thought I would share a recipe that I use to create one of my special treats. Now, I am not much of a baker nor do I consider myself to be any kind of cook. However, I do thoroughly enjoy making this recipe (even more so eating it) and I thought I would share it with you.


200g digestive biscuits

600g soft cheese

75g melted butter

3 medium eggs

50g plain flour

150g natural yogurt

250g golden caster sugar

2 finely grated zest lemons

Juice from 1 lemon

200g raspberries

Icing sugar


                                                 Raspberry and Lemon Cheesecake                                                                                

  1. Heat oven to 120C/100C fan/gas and line the base of a 20cm round tin with grease proof paper.
  2. Crush the biscuits in a food bag using a rolling pin and tip into a bowl with the melted butter and mix well.
  3. Push the biscuits into an even layer into the base of the cake tin and chill until needed.
  4. In a separate bowl use a whisk to beat the soft cheese with the sugar.
  5. Next beat in the yogurt then the eggs one at a time.
  6. Beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice and flour
  7. Fold through two thirds of the raspberries crushing them so they start to bleed into the mix
  8. Then tip the mix on top of the biscuit base and smooth over the top.
  9. Bake for 45 mins to an hour, then turn off the oven and leave the cake inside for another hour.
  10. Cool at room temperature and chill overnight.
  11. To serve, remove from tin, scatter with remaining raspberries and dust heavily with icing sugar.


I hope that it works well and that your newly created cheesecake is as good as it can be! If you have any questions just let me know!

Signing off,
