A great tasting citrus cheesecake with a marmalade glaze. Garnish with orange slices and sprigs of mint.
Instructions
Mint leaves for garnishMethod
  1. Crush the digestive biscuits, melt butter and add to the biscuit crumbs. Check whether the mixture forms into a ball when held together in your fist. If not then add a little more butter.

  3. In a bowl, beat together the cream cheese and hung curd. Add sugar, beat a little more and add orange/lemon zest.
  4. Whisk the egg slowly while beating continuously into the cream cheese mix.
  5. Mix the cream and corn flour together making sure no lumps are formed. Add this to the cream cheese mix.
  6. Pour this mixture in the lined cylindrical mold till 3/4 height of the cylinders.

  8. Remove and let cool for about 20-30 mins and refrigerated for about 2 hrs.
