4. In a separate bowl, whisk the Oggs aquafaba until pale and fluffy. Gently fold the aquafaba though the cheesecake mix until evenly combined then mix in the raspberries. Pour over the biscuit base, tap the tin on the worksurface a few times to smooth the top then place on a baking tray and bake for 40-45 mins or until the cheesecake has set.

Top Tips

• The cheesecake will keep for up to 3 days in the fridge. The longer you leave it, the denser it will become. Top with the coulis just before serving.
• Swap the gingernut biscuits for the equivalent weight of Lotus Biscoff original biscuits for a delicious twist
