Eggnog and rum make for some delicious festive indulgence with this baked, and slightly boozy, cheesecake.

For an alternative all-year round cheesecake base, lime and orange are perfect for summer, or try rum and raisin for an autumnal flavour.

Preheat the oven to oven to 180ºC.

Mix together crushed biscuits, ginger, maple syrup and butter in a bowl and then press into a 9-inch spring mould.

Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden, then leave to cool.

Blend the cream cheese, maple sugar, eggnog, white rum, nutmeg and eggs and fold in flour to finish.

Pour mixture into crust and bake for 40-50 minutes.

Remove from the oven, loosen cake rim and allow to cool, then remove the cake ring.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.

Serve with seasonal fruits or a topping of your choice.
