Baked Honey Cinnamon and Cashew Cheesecake recipe

The base of this raw cheesecake is made from stars of Eastern Mediterranean cuisine, pistachios, walnuts, dates, cinnamon and honey.


  •  300g Digestive biscuits
  •  100g melted butter
  •  Pinch of salt
  • 500g Cream cheese
  • 50g Golden caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Cornflour
  • 3 Free range eggs
  • 200g Greek yoghurt
  • 75g Runny honey
  • 100g of Pip & Nut honey cinnamon cashew butter
  • 200g Sultanas (soaked in boiling water and drained)
  • Seeds from 1 vanilla pod


  • Preheat the oven to 160C.
  • In a bowl or blender, finely crush the digestives and mix together with the melted better and pinch of salt. Transfer this mixture in to a 30cm round spring form cake tin and pack down evenly over the base. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes or so to set.
  • In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, cornflour and vanilla seeds. Add the eggs and yoghurt and then incorporate the cashew nut butter, honey and drained sultanas.
  • Pour the mixture into the cake tin and spread evenly.
  • Wrap the tin with foil and then place in the middle of a large roasting try. Pour hot water around the tin until it reaches half way up the sides of the cake tin, and then place in the oven to cook for 30 minutes.
  • Chill the cheesecake in the fridge before serving.
