Cheese Cake

Yesterday i made this Cheese Cake with ricotta cheese which came really well n tasted deliciously.Here goes the recipe..

Ingredients:

Butter-50grams melted, plus extra for greasing
Digestive biscuits-150grams
Ricotta cheese-500gram tube
Creme fraiche-200grams
Eggs-3nos
Caster sugar-175grams
Runny honey-1tbsp
Lemon, zest -1no.
Vanilla extract-2tsp



Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease the sides and base of a 20cm of cake tin

Place the biscuits in a food processor and blend until quite fine. Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and pop into the prepared tin. Press down into the base of the tin to form an even layer.
Blend the ricotta, creme fraiche, eggs, sugar, honey, lemon zest and vanilla extract in a food processor for a few seconds until smooth.

Pour the mixture onto the biscuit base in the tin and gently shake and tilt the tin so that the ricotta mixture forms a level layer. Bake in the oven for 40–45 minutes or until the cheesecake is pale golden and wobbles slightly in the middle when you shake the tin.

Remove from the oven, cover with foil and leave in a warm place to completely cool before storing in the fridge overnight.
Before serving remove from the cake from the tin and garnish with chopped grapes on top and enjoy..
