2. Meanwhile, place the soft cheese, soured cream, caster sugar and vanilla powder in a large bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add the beaten eggs and whisk again until well blended.
3. Arrange the blackberries on the biscuit base and dot with the lemon curd. Pour over the cheesecake mixture. Sit the tin on a baking sheet and bake for 40–45 minutes until set and golden brown. Leave to cool in the tin then chill for at least 2 hours or overnight before dusting with icing sugar and serving. Enjoy with some lovely thick cream.
