  1. Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Crush the biscuits and most of the almonds inside a plastic food bag using a rolling pin. Mix with the butter, then press into the bottom of a deep, oval, 23cm dish (or something similar in size – a roasting tin, baking dish or cake tin will work). Bake for 10 mins until crisp.

  2. Stir or mash together the yogurt and mascarpone, then whisk in the eggs, one at a time. Stir in the lemon and orange zests, then stir in most of the honey, reserving about 3 tbsp. Spread over the biscuit base, cover loosely with foil and cook for 1 hr. Remove the foil and cook for 15 mins more until lightly golden and the top is firm with just the slightest wobble in the middle. Leave to cool. Can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 days.

  3. To serve, scatter with almonds, drizzle over the remaining honey, and hand around fresh fruit to go with it.

A bit uninspiring to be honest. Couldn't taste the honey as the zext of orange and lemon was very overpowering. I added some honey roasted peanuts to the base for a bit of exra crunch, but something is definitely missing with this and I'm not sure what. Made plenty however, easily serve 8, and baked well.

DutchRed, I had the same problem but the size of the dish was fine but the mixture is just too much (my dish size is 23 cm across and 4 cm deep (oval)). Wonder if this is due to the use of ml and gr in the recipe. Anyway, filled up individual ramekins that were shared with the in-laws. Taste is good but Angela's Ultimate NY Cheesecake is just better ...

Made this last weekend when we had friends over for dinner. Got the size of the dish wrong so ended up with too much base in comparison to the filling and ended up with quite a bit left over mixture. Flavour was wonderful and used the leftover mixture to make 4 mini cheesecakes in ramequins. Will make again but use a round (and larger) baking tin. Used no-fat greek yoghurt to try and cut down on the amount of fat a bit, worked fine.

250 ml of honey seems an awful lot. Is this correct?

Thanks for your question, yes 250ml is correct. You keep back 45ml (3 tbsp) for drizzling over at the end ie. use 205ml in the cake. Hope that helps!
