Ingredients
  

Crust

  • 150 g butter
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 11 tbsp flour

Filling

  • 500 g cream cheese or fresh ricotta cheese
  • 200 g sour cream
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 5 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 tbsp corn starch (optional)

Garnish

  • sliced fresh strawberries

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 150C (300 F).
  • For the crust mix all ingredients in a food processor until crumbs are formed. Press  the crumbs into bottom of a 10-inch (26 cm) springform pan (with a removable base) so that they stick together but not so much that it'll lose its crumby texture.
  • For the cheese filling beat cheese, sour cream, cornstarch, vanilla extract, honey and sugar in a food processor until well blended. Start adding the eggs one at a time until each egg is absorbed. Pour the filling over the prepared crust. 
  • Bake for 40-50 minutes until the cheesecake is set. Run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the pan. Let it cool completely at room temperature. You can serve or refrigerate overnight. 
  • To serve, remove sides of the pan. Garnish with strawberry slices,mint leaves and strawberry topping.
