Method

Crust:

Line a 20 cm in diameter loose bottomed or spring form pan with baking paper. Leave a 2 cm higher than the pan collar.   Place the pan on a baking sheet for easy handling.  Mix the biscuit crumbs and butter together and lightly press into the pan.

Filling:

Break the cream cheese up into smaller pieces using a fork.  Add the cultured cream and the eggs and beat well until smooth.  Add the sugar a little at a time and beat well after each addition.  Add the vanilla and the lemon zest and mix through.  Sift in the cornflour while beating.   Spoon the mixture on top of the biscuit crust and lightly tap the pan to even out.  Bake in a preheated oven at 240° C for 10 minutes.  Lower the heat to 100°C and bake for a further 30 minutes.  Switch off the oven and leave to cool in the oven.  

Topping:

Mix the melted chocolate and cream together until smooth.   Spread on top of the cheesecake.  Top with fresh berries of your choice.
