IN A NUTSHELL
The whole idea of this cake is that no eggs are needed- so you don’t have to bake it. All we are going to do is: 1) create a base using biscuits 2) top with cheese filling and 3) spread jam over it. That’s it!
Crush the biscuits into crumbs. Then add into softened butter. Pressed the mixture into a 20cm springform tin and refrigerate.
Beat together the cream cheese, icing sugar, vanilla extract and lemon juice in a bowl until smooth.
Lightly whip the double cream, and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Refrigerate overnight.
When you are ready to serve the cheesecake, unmould it and spread the berries over the top. That’s it!
