  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.

Good food makes this statement on their website; "All our recipes are tested thoroughly by us to make sure they’re suitable for your kitchen at home. We know many of you are concerned about healthy eating, so we send them to a qualified nutritionist for thorough analysis too." So why is it that this cheese cake has turned out to be problematic for so many of us! Im extremely annoyed. The biscuit base is isnwrong the amount of soft way too much, the instruction of temperature is wrong, the instruction of how long to bake it etc. If this had been tested by good food then how can all of us have these issues. The flavour is lovely but so much wrong with it that we have to figure out ourselves. A recipe like this should not be up on site like this where its caused many of us to waste our time and money to be disappointed.

It's interesting how variable people's experiences with this recipe have been. I had never made a baked cheesecake before but it turned out perfectly for a dinner party. However I agree with some of the suggested variations.-a larger tin was really required as I couldn't fit all the filling into a 20 inch tin and had to waste quite alot of the ingredients which was a shame. It definitely has to be chilled over night to achieve the required effect. Really yummy!

Fantastic recipe! I used low-fat cream cheese, fat free natural yoghurt, less butter and a mix of blueberries and raspberries. After reading the comments I also baked it for 1 hour and it turned out brilliantly :) It did leak a bit of butter from the biscuit base, but I kept the tin on a plate in the fridge. Delicious and would definitely recommend!

Recipe doesn't give gas mark number but think temperature given is too low. I had to cook it for much longer and turn heat up and it was still a bit soft in the middle. However, it was delicious.

I made ot for my mum and it went out really good and this is easy to make . Instead of raspberries I used strawberries and I baked it longer.

Made this recipe using spelt flour to make a wheat free version. Worked perfectly, after reading all the comments above i left in the oven for an extra 15 mins and the inside didnt leak :). Fantastic recipe - very easy and totally delicious, will definitely make this again.
