This delicious Cranberry Cheesecake is a winner for afternoon tea. Goes very well with fine coffee. Although its a baked cheesecake, it is easy to make.


185g unsalted butter, softened
150g cream cheese, softened
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
1 1/4 cups caster sugar
3 eggs
1 cup self raising flour
2/3 cup plain flour
1 cup frozen cranberries
icing sugar


Grease a 22cm fluted ring cake tin.

Using an electric mixer, beat butter, cream cheese and lemon rind until combined. Add caster sugar and beat for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flours. Gently fold through cranberries.

Spoon mixture into cake tin. Smooth top. Bake at 180 degrees celsius for 1 1/4 hours or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from oven. Let cheesecake stand in cake tin for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool.

Dust cheesecake with icing sugar just before serving.
