    This baked cheese cake is straightforward to make. With a touch of orange and cinnamon, the ricotta also gives a lovely flavour and texture compared to typical cheesecakes made with cream cheese.

    I was looking for a recipe that reminded me of light cheesecakes I ate in Italy where I just spent my summer hols. This is an easy and fabulous cheesecake, with the caramelised biscuits making a lovely base. You can find Lotus Caramelised Biscuits at any large supermarket. Amaretti biscuits could also work well.

    This is my grandmother's cheesecake recipe that she passed down to my entire family. Ricotta makes for a lovely flavour and texture in this cheesecake, which is lightly scented with lemon and vanilla.
