This rich and boozy cheesecake makes a great dessert for grown ups. Substitute the rum with orange juice for an alcohol-free version.

  2. Blend the biscuits in a food processor, or crush in a plastic bag with a rolling pin. Transfer to a clean bowl, stir in the melted butter then press the mixture into the prepared cake tin and bake in the oven for five minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese with the flour, sugar, vanilla extract, whole eggs, egg yolk and one of the pots of soured cream until light and fluffy.

  4. Mix in the raisins soaked in rum, pour onto the biscuit base and bake for 30 minutes.
