Baked Raspberry Cheesecake Recipe

Baked cheesecakes are the best kind but do not need to be complicated. This one is pretty much fool proof and is done in 40 minutes as long as the oven is set to 180C. The filling is rich, creamy and heavenly, everything yo would expect from a cheesecake and then some! Naturally cheesecakes and raspberries go well together because of the natural tanginess that cheesecakes have. The tartness of the raspberries and creaminess of the cream cheese results in a sumptuous and deliciously rich cheesecake which isn’t overly sweet as the raspberries are quite tart, and the lemon zest gives cuts through the sweetness. No doubt this cheesecake is a winner and one that you will do time and again because of it’s amazing taste and ease.

When the cheesecake is cooling the top might crack a little but it is not a problem as the raspberry sauce and sprinkled raspberries will mask this. This can be prevented altogether if it is allowed to cool slowly, by allowing to sit in the oven with the door open until it cools completely, although this will take longer than simply taking it out.
