I like this cheesecake, made with ricotta, because it is an all-in-one recipe and ever so easy to make.
For the Quick Mulberry Cheesecake you will need: 300g Maltese mulberries (Ċawsli) 1kg ricotta 6 large eggs 2 tablespoons cornflour 200g caster sugar or equivalent in stevia vanilla pinch of salt grated zest of a lime or lemon
Preheat oven to 170°C and line a springform cake tin with baking parchment.
Beat the ricotta with an electric mixer and add the eggs one by one. Add the other ingredients and mix with the electric whisk until it starts to come together.
Use a 21cm-loose bottomed tart dish and prepare it with baking spray. Pour the batter into the tart tin and place the mulberries on top of the batter then bake it in the oven for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave to cool completely in the oven. Chill before slicing and serving.
Lea’s tip: Wash the berries just before you use them. Do not soak in water but place them in a colander and gently splash them with water. Place them on a plate and cover with kitchen towel and leave in the fridge until you make your cheesecake.
