  • Line eight individual moulds (large ramekins or recycled tuna tins) with baking paper and grease well.

  • Spoon the crust into the moulds and press down with the back of a spoon to form an even base.

  • Refrigerate to set.

Filling

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  • Add all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and mix well with a wooden spoon until a smooth batter forms.

  • Remove your crusts from the fridge and pour the batter on top of the crusts, taking care to distribute the batter equally.

  • Place the small cheesecakes on a baking tray into the oven, then reduce the heat to 100°C and bake for 30 minutes.

  • After 30 minutes, switch the oven off, leaving the cheesecakes to cool in the oven.

  • When the cheesecakes have cooled, remove from the oven and refrigerate to set.

Serving
