Ingredients

  • 150g digestive biscuits
  • 100g oatcakes
  • 60g margarine
  • 1kg fat-free Quark
  • 200g soured cream
  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • 2tbsp cornflour
  • Juice lemon
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium eggs
  • Mixed berries, to serve

Run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake while it's still warm to loosen and stop it cracking.

Method

  1. Heat the oven to 170C fan, gas 5. Blitz the digestive biscuits and oatcakes together in a food processor until fine.

  2. Melt the margarine in a saucepan over a low heat. Tip the biscuit crumbs into the saucepan and mix until well coated in the margarine. Scrape the mixture into a 20cm greased cake tin and gently spread to make an even layer.

  3. Beat the Quark, soured cream, sugar, cornflour, lemon juice and vanilla with an electric whisk until smooth. Next, beat in the eggs until well combined. Pour the mixture into the tin, smooth the top and bake for 15 mins.

  4. Turn the oven down to 90C fan, gas and bake for another 30 mins. Leave to cool, then chill for 2 hrs or overnight. Add fresh berries on top and serve.
