Ingredients

  • 300g digestive biscuits
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
For the filling:
  • 200g sultanas
  • 500g full-fat Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 3 medium eggs, beaten
  • 375g Greek yogurt
  • seeds from 1 vanilla pod
  • 150g full-flavoured clear honey
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to two days ahead, chill.
  1. Preheat the oven to 160°C, fan 140°C, gas 3. In a blender or 
large bowl, finely crush the digestive biscuits and mix with the melted butter and a pinch of salt. Transfer the biscuit mix to a 24cm round springform cake tin and pack down to cover the base and about halfway up the sides (use the back of a spoon). Chill for 20 minutes.
  2. Soak the sultanas in boiling 
water in a small bowl for 5 minutes, then drain and pat dry.
  3. In a large bowl, beat together 
the cream cheese, sugar and cornflour. Add the eggs, 200g of the yogurt and vanilla seeds, then the honey, cinnamon and drained sultanas, stirring well to combine.
  4. Tip the cheese mixture into the cake tin and spread to cover the base. Wrap the underside of the tin with foil; place in the middle of a large, deep roasting tray. Pour hot water into the tray until it reaches halfway up the sides 
of the cake tin, then carefully place in the oven and cook 
for 35-40 minutes; the cheesecake should still be 
wobbly in the very centre.
  5. For the topping, mix the remaining yogurt and vanilla extract together in a small 
bowl with 50ml cold water. Remove the cheesecake from 
the oven; thinly spread over the topping. Increase the oven temperature to 180°C, fan 160°C, gas 4. Return the cheesecake to the oven for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the cheesecake from the oven; cool completely (the top may crack slightly). Chill overnight.
