Put on the kettle water for hot water to pour in the roasting tray.
To make the cream cheese filling, add the softened cream cheese to a cake mixer and beat for a couple of minutes until smooth and creamy.
Then add the caster sugar and beat well till the sugar has combined and dissolved well.
Add one egg at a time, making sure each has dissolved well before adding the next one.
Reduce the speed of the mixer and add the lemon juice, vanilla essence, cardamom powder and salt. Beat till combined and add the double cream. Beat again just for a few seconds till the cream has combined well.
Pour into the cake tin with the cooled crumb base. Tap to even the surface and place the tin inside the roasting tray.
