Gluten Free Baked German Cheesecake

There are many ways to make a cheesecake. This sumptuous gluten free cheesecake is baked using two types of cheeses creating that perfect creamy texture. The cake is light slightly flavoured with fresh lemon juice and if desired topped with our fresh raspberry sauce. Recipe included

What I love about this cheesecake, it can be made in advance and will keep up to five days when refrigerated without losing that perfect cheesecake texture and flavour. This cheesecake is also grain free
