I must, I must, make this cake one day!!!

Ok, so here is the recipe for "LEMON CHEESECAKE" from Mrs Short, not Berry Cheesecake as I have been calling it! Haha, name shmame, it's so good! So a delcious cheesecake recipe for all who actually bake. Maybe one day I will be not be lazy and actually use my brand new cake tin with spring thingymijig to make this, it's been sitting in my kitchen cupboard from,well, say the xmas sales of 2009???

Anyway it's so creamy with the lemon tang but not the tangy tang that makes your left eye wink a bit and twitch for a second, but the mmmm sort of tang with a lot of yummy sweetness! The berries are just extra goodness, just to make it more healthy! :)
