New Low FODMAP Desserts - Baked raspberry & lemon cheesecake
200g gluten and dairy free digestive biscuits*
75g lactose free butter, melted
600g full-fat lactose free soft cheese
250g golden caster sugar
150g lactose free cream
3 medium eggs
finely grated zest 2 lemons, juice of 1
50g rice flour
icing sugar, to decorate
* we used ‘Free From’ gluten and dairy free biscuits
Heat oven to 120C/100C fan/gas and line the base of a 20cm round springform tin with greaseproof paper. Crush the gluten and dairy free biscuits in a food processor or in a food bag using a rolling pin.
Tip into a bowl with the melted lactose free butter and mix well. Push the biscuits into an even layer into the base of the cake tin and chill until needed.
In a separate bowl use an electric whisk to beat the lactose free soft cheese with the sugar. Next beat in the lactose free cream then the eggs one at a time.
Finally beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice and rice flour. Fold through two thirds of the raspberries crushing them very slightly so they start to bleed into the mix then tip the mix on top of the biscuit base and smooth over the top.
Bake for 45 mins then turn off the oven, leave the cake inside for another hour then cool at room temperature. Chill overnight. To serve, remove from tin, scatter with remaining raspberries and dust heavily with icing sugar.
