- STEP 1
Pre heat the oven to Gas 2 (150c / 300f) - use butter to grease a round 23cm/9 inch loose-bottomed cake tin
- STEP 2
Put the biscuits into a freezer bag and beat the hell out of them with a rolling pin (or a food processor!)
- STEP 3
Melt the butter in a pan and add the crumbs - mixing well. Tip into the cake tin and push down to an even base with the back of a spoon. Place in the fridge to firm up.
- STEP 4
Mix the cream cheese, caster sugar, eggs, lemon rind, vanilla extract & a big squeeze of the lemon juice and mix till smooth (could use a food processor here too!)
- STEP 5
Pour the mix onto the biscuit base and bake in the oven for 35-40 mins.
- STEP 6
Now switch off the oven - and LEAVE THE CAKE IN THE OVEN to cool down and firm up for at least 2 hours.
- STEP 7
Finally decorate with fruit.
