Instructions

  • Base

    Finely crush the biscuits in a plastic bag using a rolling pin or blitz them in a food processor, mix with the butter and lemon juice. Spread the mixture over the bottom of the prepared cake tin and press down firmly with the base of a glass. Top with blueberries and blackberries.
  • Fruit puree

    Puree the blueberries and blackberries with the sugar.
  • Cream cheese mixture

    Combine the cream cheese with all the other ingredients up to and including the lemon zest, mix well using the whisk on a hand mixer. Combine ¼ of the mixture with the fruit puree. Spread the remaining cheese mixture over the biscuit base. Spoon the fruit puree mixture on top, create a marble effect using a fork.
