Baked Berry cheesecake

Cheesecakes are fabulous especially when flavored with berries

Preparation time: 30 mins
Cooking time: 1 hour 40 mins
Serves: 8

Recipe Ingredients : 

Digestive biscuits 200g
Toasted almonds 50g, ground in a food processor
Butter 125g, melted, plus extra for the tin
Golden caster sugar 175g
Soft cheese 300g
Eggs2, separated
Soured cream 300g
Mixed berries (blackberries, strawberries) 100g, halved
Plain flour 100g
Butter 50g, chilled
Demerera sugar 50g
Blackberries 100g, halved
Heat oven to 160c/fan 140c/gas 3. To make the base, crush the biscuits and stir in the hazelnuts then add the melted butter. Line the base of a 23cm*7cm deep pan in with the biscuits mix and pack in well. Butter the sides and chill in the fridge while you make the filling.
Whisk half the caster sugar with the soft cheese, using electric beaters, then slowly and the egg yolks, one at time, until combined. Whisk in the soured cream.
Whisk the egg whites in a clean bowl with clean beaters until stiff, then add the remaining sugar a spoonful at a time, Whisking between each addition until stiff and glossy. Mix the meringue in to the soft cheese mix.
Pour a good layer of mix over the base, drop in a few halved blackberries, then repeat the process so that all the mix and the blackberries have been used. Tap on a work surface to settle the mix then cook for 20 minutes. To make the topping, whiz the flour, butter and pinch of salt until it resembles breadcrumbs. Toss with the sugar and blackberries.
After 20 minutes, gently take the cheesecake half out of the oven scatter the crumble mix on top, return to the oven and bake for another 40 minutes. Leave to cool completely in the tin- it may crack a little but the crumble mix will mask it. Carefully release from the tin and cut into slices.
