blueberry cheesecake

75g Butter, melted, plus extra for greasing
175g digestive biscuits
175g Blueberries, plus extra for decorating
450g cream cheese
150g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 Eggs, lightly beaten
icing sugar, to dust

1. Preheat the oven to 180/gas 4. Butter the sides and base of a 24cm cake tin.

2. Place the biscuits into a food processor and pulse until the mixture resembles rough breadcrumbs. Alternatively, place them into a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin. Mix the crushed biscuits with the melted butter and press down into the base of the tin. Spread the blueberries over the base and allow to chill in the fridge until needed.

3. Beat the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla extract and the eggs together in a large bowl until smooth and creamy. Pour over the top of the blueberries and then bake in the oven for 40 minutes, or until pale golden and only wobbles slightly when you gently shake the tin.

4. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in the tin for about 10-15 minutes, then run a knife around the edge to loosen it and carefully remove the cheesecake from the tin. Transfer to a serving plate. Sprinkle over a few blueberries, then dust with icing sugar.

5. Cut into slices to serve. This cheesecake is best eaten when it is at room temperature.

Cook’s note: You can experiment with all kinds of (dry) sweet biscuits or cookies for the base; just crush them the way you would the digestives above. Try using a chocolate biscuit base and omitting the blueberries.

Hi all!
Think my Mum and I will make the Rachel Allen cheescake tomorrow.

Managed to do a little over target last week and starting on a 10K schedule today in preparation for a 5K in May and a 10K in June (Lancaster & Morecambe Race Series). I've figured I need some 'goals' to keep focused.
My Dad was seen by my boss last Thursday- and he seems to be feeling a little stronger which is always good.
Hopefully out this afternoon for a 4 miler in the slightly less damp air! :)
