Nutty Blueberry Cheesecake

The following is a guest post recipe by Mariam Lewis. This delicious cheesecake is both nutty and zesty with the addition of chopped hazelnuts to the base and plenty of lemon zest and vanilla in the cheesecake to produce a rich and zesty flavour.

The velvety blueberry sauce is a perfect accompanyment to the creamy cheesecake and the overall mixture just works a treat.
