Cheesecake. Berries. Lime. Need I say more?

  3. Press into a greased/lined tin.
  4. Bake for 8-10mins until golden.
  5. Then set aside to cool and increase oven to 250°C.

Thermomix Method:

  1. Add all ingredients to TM bowl (butter doesn’t have to be melted)
  2. Blitz until butter is mixed through dry ingredients
  3. Mix for 5 minutes at 90C on speed 2. (to melt and combine butter)

  • 1/3 cup full fat sour cream
  • 3 organic eggs

  1. Beat together until fluffy (with a spoon or with your blender/Thermomix)

Put it Together:

  1. Pour filling over cooked base.
  2. Add 200gms of mixed berries to the top and press gently into mixture if they don sink. (fresh or frozen is fine).
  3. Place the cheesecake into the oven and turn the oven down to 100°C straight away.
  • This temperature drop allows even cooking and create a lovely texture.
