Prep:30min  ›  Extra time:3hr chilling  ›  Ready in:3hr30min 

    For the base:

  1. Put biscuits in a food processor and process to fine crumbs. Transfer to a bowl and add in the melted butter, mixing well to integrate. Spoon the base mixture into an 18cm cake tin and press down gently with the back of a spoon to compact. Place in the fridge to chill.
  2. For the filling:

  3. Beat the double cream with a handheld whisk until soft peaks form; set aside. In a different bowl, mix cream cheese, caster sugar, lemon zest, and beat with a handheld whisk till smooth.
  4. Pour 5 tablespoons of cold water into a small bowl and sprinkle the gelatine over it. Leave to swell for 5 to 10 minutes, then dissolve the gelatine over very low heat in a small saucepan, or for just a few seconds in the microwave.
  5. Add gelatine to cream cheese and mix well using a rubber spatula, until a smooth consistency is obtained. Fold in cream and mix thoroughly. Spoon the mixture on top of the biscuit base and spread evenly.
  6. For the coulis:

  7. In the meantime, put raspberries, sugar and lemon juice in a food processor and blend well.
  8. Pour half of the coulis on the cheesecake and make swirls, with the help of a spatula, mimicking a marble effect.
  9. Chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours, or overnight. Serve with the rest of the coulis on the side.
