Baked Cheesecake

My first cheesecake!

To make the base I crushed 12 digestive biscuits and mixed in 50g caster sugar and 50g melted butter.
Then you need to press the mixture onto the bottom and up the sides of a cake tin. Mine has a removable bottom, or you can use the springform type. Leave to chill in the fridge a little while.

Blend together 300g soft cheese, 50g caster sugar and 2 eggs. 
Pour on top of the base and bake at 180 degrees for 30 minutes, or until it is set.

Allow to cool and top with fruit.
I used fresh strawberries, and made a syrup by boiling 1 tablespoon strawberry jam, 1 tablespoon golden syrup and a splosh of water. I allowed this to cool a little then poured it all over.
