Serves: 8

Method

Preheat the oven to 170°C.

Line the base of a 20cm (8 inch) spring-form tin with non-stick baking parchment and brush the tin with oil.

Mix together the biscuits and honey and press into the base of the tin and a little way up the sides. Chill until required.

In a large bowl, beat together the ricotta cheese, cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Stir in the SPLENDA® Granulated.

Pour ¾ of the mixture into a separate bowl. Add the lemon zest, stir to combine and pour into the tin. Set aside.

Warm the milk over a low heat, remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa until combined. Beat the cocoa mixture into the remaining cheese mixture. Pour into the centre of the plain cheese mixture and using a skewer or sharp knife swirl, making a figure of eight pattern until a marbled appearance is achieved.

Bake for 45-50 minutes until just golden and set. Cool slightly or chill before serving.

Redcurrant Coulis

Gently heat the redcurrants in a pan with 2 tablespoons of water for 5 minutes until the juices run.

Push through a sieve and stir in the SPLENDA® Granulated.

Serve warm or cold with the cheesecake.
