• 200g digestive biscuits, crushed
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
  • 397g tin Carnation condensed milk
  • 300g full fat soft cheese
  • 2 lemons, juice only
  • 175g fresh strawberries, hulled and halved, to serve
  • 2 tablespoons strawberry jam, to serve


  1. 1

    Tip the crushed digestive biscuits into a bowl and mix in the melted butter (you can crush the biscuits in a food processor, or wrapped in a tea towel with a rolling pin).

  2. 2

    Spoon the buttery crumbs into a round loose-bottomed or spring form cake tin. Press down with the back of the spoon to form an even layer. Chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.

  3. 3

    Pour the condensed milk into a large bowl. Add the soft cheese and whisk together.

  4. 4

    Mix in the lemon juice until the mixture thickens. Pour onto the chilled base and gently level the top. Chill in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

  5. 5

    When ready to serve, gently run a knife around the edge of the cheesecake and carefully remove from the tin. Place on a serving plate.

  6. 6

    Mix the halved strawberries with the jam (you may need to beat the jam to loosen first) and spoon over the cheesecake to serve.

  7. 7

    Cook's tip: For best results always put the strawberries on just at the last minute before serving. The base and filling can be made ahead and chilled overnight if preferred.
