  • 200g essential Waitrose All Butter Biscuits, crushed
  • 60g butter, melted
  • 300g essential Waitrose soft cheese
  • 300ml essential Waitrose Half Fat Soured Cream
  • 150g Tate & Lyle Golden Caster Cane Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Ndali Fairtrade Organic Vanilla 6 Powder
  • 2 Waitrose British Blacktail Large Free Range Eggs, beaten
  • 225g essential Waitrose Blackberries
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd
  • 2 tbsp Tate & Lyle Icing Sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 190ºC, gas mark 5. Mix together the crushed biscuits and butter until well combined then tip into the base of a deep, 23cm loose-bottomed cake tin. Press down firmly with the back of a spoon and place in the fridge to chill.

  2. Meanwhile, place the soft cheese, soured cream, caster sugar and vanilla powder in a large bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add the beaten eggs and whisk again until well blended.

  3. Arrange the blackberries on the biscuit base and dot with the lemon curd. Spoon over the cheesecake mixture. Sit the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 40–45 minutes until set and golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin then chill for at least 2 hours or overnight before dusting with icing sugar and serving.

Cook’s tip

Try using other biscuits for the base, such as ginger nuts or digestives.
