Lemon and Raspberry Baked Cheesecake

Lemon and Raspberry cheesecake recipe

Lemon and Raspberry cheesecake recipeLemon cheesecake is a staple in our home, probably because it’s what I was brought up on. My mum and I had both planned to bake a lemon cheesecake this weekend, but a trip out with CM to Hendrewennol on Saturday meant I decided to combine raspberries into the recipe.
Lemon and Raspberry cheesecake ingredientsI’ll be honest, I’m not sure which I prefer. The raspberries are a great addition, but something tells me where family recipes and comfort foods are involved, you shouldn’t mess.
Using low fat ingredients also made a different bake, not as structured, but still as yummy.
