  • Method

    For the base:
    • Line the base of a 19cm round loose bottom cake tin with parchment paper.
    • Using the Kenwood food processor attachment, blitz the biscuits.
    • Mix the biscuits with the melted butter and spoon them into the baking tin.
    • Using the back of a spoon, press the biscuit crumb up the sides and across the bottom of the tin.
    • Pop this into the fridge for 20 minutes.
    For the filling:
    • To make the filling, into the bowl of your Kenwood stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whisk the cream cheese, icing sugar, lime zest and vanilla until combined.
    • Pour in the double cream and whisk on high speed until the mixture is thick.
    • Spoon this into the lined tin, smooth out the top and chill overnight.
    For the baked rhubarb:
    • To make the baked rhubarb, preheat the oven to 180C.
      Wash and chop the stalks into 2-inch pieces.
    • Place the rhubarb, lime juice, water and sugar into a baking dish and pop into the oven for 10-12 minutes or until the stalks begin to soften.
    • Remove and allow to cool completely in their juices.
    To serve:
    • To serve, carefully run a sharp knife around the edge of the cheesecake to help with demoulding.
    • Place the cheesecake onto a serving dish and top with the beautiful ruby baked rhubarb.
