Beat the cream cheese with the flour, caster sugar, vanilla extract, eggs and yolk and the soured cream until light and fluffy. Stir in two thirds of the raspberries and pour into the tin. Bake for 40 minutes and then check, it should be set but slightly wobbly in the centre. Leave in the tin to cool.
Keeping a few raspberries for the top, put the rest in a pan with the icing sugar. Heat until juicy and then squash with a fork. Push through a sieve.
Serve the cheesecake with the raspberry sauce and raspberries.
