Lemon Custard Fruit Cheesecake

A biscuit base with a yellow fruit custard topping this came from a failed attempt of a fruit flan. I left the pastry in the fridge for too long so had to try and invent something with what I had in the cupboard. When you hear what is in it it sounds strange but tastes amazing! And it is brilliant because you can seriously make it from just whatever you have in the cupboard. It takes less than 15 minutes to make as well.
