  1. Heat oven to 120C/100C fan/gas and line the base of a 20cm round springform tin with greaseproof paper. Crush the biscuits in a food processor or in a food bag using a rolling pin. Tip into a bowl with the melted butter and mix well. Push the biscuits into an even layer into the base of the cake tin and chill until needed.

  2. In a separate bowl use an electric whisk to beat the soft cheese with the sugar. Next beat in the yoghurt then the eggs one at a time. Finally beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice and flour. Fold through two thirds of the raspberries crushing them very slightly so they start to bleed into the mix then tip the mix on top of the biscuit base and smooth over the top. Bake for 45 mins to an hour, then turn off the oven, leave the cake inside for another hour then cool at room temperature. Chill overnight. To serve, remove from tin, scatter with remaining raspberries and dust heavily with icing sugar.

I should have read the comments first - it's been in for 1hr so far and only about 1" has set around the outside (fan oven). this will never set, and not entirely sure cooking eggs at such a low temperature is healthy.

This is an excellent cheesecake recipe, easy, quick and delicious! Not too zesty, not runny, and the contrast of light lemon with the raspberry is perfect. I baked it at 180 rather than 100 degrees, due to the comments about it not setting well, but it was solid and cut easily and the crust and profile looks exactly like the photo. Use a thick Greek yogurt, and a solid soft cream cheese, and the flour as specified and my guests thought it was marvellous

After reading the comments I turned up the temperature a bit (140 fan), baked it for 1 hour and followed the rest of the instructions to a T. I think I had the oven too hot as it did end up with quite a nasty split... However, once covered with raspberries you couldn't tell :) tasted amazing and everyone loved it! Will definitely make this again and lower the temperature down a little!

Hi All, This recipe can be saved! I followed the instructions and mine came out with more than a wobble :( it was only then did I look at the comments below... needless to say I put my cake (of cheese) back in for a further 20 minutes at 190c (without leaving it for a hour) and it has turned out perfect :) I think if you follow the instructions at 180c (non fan) for the same amount of time e.g. 45 minutes it will turn out wonderfully. Happy baking people!

Unfortunately it's a complete waste that I had to throw away. Just as Harris mentioned it didn't set at all and beside being mushy it was too zesty as well. An expensive waste!

I made this the other day and it looked ok but when I came to serve it it had not set and I had to throw it away. I have made cheesecakes before and not sure what went wrong with this. An expensive waste!!

Fantastic recipe with a fantastic outcome! I followed this to a T and the result was a delicious cake which everybody commented on. Unlike some of the comments, my cake wasn't runny at all and worked out a treat! Can highly recommend this one and will definitely make it again.

Just made this before reading all your comments! I too felt it wasn't sufficiently cooked after 45 minutes so kept it in the oven longer and turned up the temperature a bit!! I probably then overcooked it but at least it wasn't liquid when I cut into it the next day... It was a bit cracked on top after a few hours in the fridge - probably due to my overcooking it a bit. But a compote of summer fruits on top hid all the imperfections and nobody could tell!! It was Delicious!

Just tried my first slice of this cheesecake I made and I must say it was delicious! Yes I agree, maybe the cooking time is slightly off as when I took mine out of the oven it was still very liquidy but I carried on following the instructions and left it out for a few hours then in to the fridge for 24 hours and it set perfectly. Definitely a must to try!

I've just cut into this after chilling out and it's come out good. Follow instructions exactly. It seems quite like a liquid when you put it in the oven but it comes out ok and chilling overnight does well to set it. My biscuit base is really thin compared to the picture though. It is very rich so I'd suggest a small slice at a time maybe with Ice cream
