Ingredients

For the base:
  • 250g packet digestive biscuits, crumbed
  • 75g butter, melted
For the cheesecake:
  • 500g full-fat cream cheese
  • 300ml carton double cream
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 level tbsp plain flour
  • 2 med eggs
  • Strawberries, to serve
  • 30cm continental loaf tin, buttered and lined with a strip of baking parchment

Method

  1. Set the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Tip the biscuit crumbs into a bowl and stir in the melted butter. Press the mixture into the base of the loaf tin.
  3. To make the cheesecake mixture: Beat the cream cheese to soften it, and then beat in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base.
  4. Bake the cheesecake for 15 mins, then turn down the oven temperature to 120C/275F/Gas Mark and cook for a further 1-1 hrs, or until the cheesecake is almost completely set in the centre (it should still have a slight wobble). Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake to cool in there.
  5. When its cool, refrigerate the cheesecake until its very firm and then remove from the tin. Serve sliced with halved strawberries.
