Indulge yourself with this deliciously-decadent cheesecake. A little of what you fancy does you good...

  • 12 Ginger nut biscuits
  • 30 g Low-fat spread (softened)
  • 500 g Quark (skimmed milk soft cheese)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder (level)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 60 g raspberries (Fresh )
  • Heat-stable granulated sweetener (to taste)
  • Icing sugar or cocoa powder (for dusting)
  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C, 325°F, Gas mark 3
  2. Place the ginger nut biscuits in a polythene bag, then seal and roll them with a rolling pin until they are crushed to fine crumbs
  3. Mix the crushed biscuits with the low-fat spread and press down evenly into the base of a 20cm flan tin with a removable base
  4. In a mixing bowl, beat the Quark until smooth
  5. Beat in the cocoa powder and eggs (an electric hand mixer is best for doing this)
  6. Sweeten to taste with artificial sweetener
  7. Pour into the flan tin to cover the base and level the top
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 40 minutes until cooked and firm (You can test whether it's cooked by inserting a skewer or thin knife in the center - it should come out clean)
  9. Set aside to cool, when completely cold remove it from the tin
  10. Decorate with fresh raspberries and serve cut into slices, dusted with icing sugar or cocoa powder.
