Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Line the bottom of a 23cm springform tin with greaseproof paper. Tip the biscuits and melted butter into a food processor, then blitz to make fine crumbs. Press into the tin and chill.

  2. Whisk all the other ingredients in a large bowl until completely combined, pour into the tin, then bake for 35-40 mins until the cheesecake has a uniform wobble.

  3. Turn off the oven and leave the cake inside until cool. When it is completely cooled, remove from the tin and top with soured cream. Swirl lemon curd over the top and decorate with raspberries, if you like.

I've made this twice now and it's been absolutely delish both times. It's unbelievably easy but tastes really special, and as you can make it a day ahead it's perfect for a party. It is *immensely* rich and would easily serve 14 people, but if you can't finish it all on the day it freezes brilliantly in portions - we were still eating it a couple months later and it tasted just as good as on the day.

Excellent recipe. I made this cheesecake for a family party and followed the recipe exactly apart from an extra 5 minutes baking time. No problems at all and it tasted and looked absolutely great. I'm sure this is a dessert I will make regularly.

Very nice chesecake,with a subtle flavour of lemon ( it doesn't taste acidic like some other lemon cake). It's very easy to make and looks impressive, especially if you pipe some whipped cream on top instead of the sour cream but it's not very light on the stomach so you'll want to cut small slices. I'm not sure 100g is quite right since half of it dripped out of the tin when in the oven ( luckily I had placed a tray on the bottom shelf just in case.).

This is my first trial to make cheesecake. I am sorry I m not sure if all 100g melted butter is used to mix with 225g digestive biscuits. Would anyone please help me?

Yes, mix all the butter with the biscuits. You're gonna get a crummy mix which you press into the bottom of a springform covering it all.

I have made quite a lot of cheesecakes over the years and this one is one I would go back to time and again. Reliable result and delicious. One of my favourites.
