Easy lemon cheese cake

January 30, 2008

I really love to make this easy lemon cheese cake. The combination of freshly squeezed lemon juice, zest makes it more enticing. Since it cannot be indulged frequently so I really look for a special occasion where I can make this lovely cake and have plenty of people to bite the cheesy slice. Recently we had a potluck and this lemon cheese cake was my go to recipe. I raised my hands straightway for the Dessert.

The Eggless lemon curd was the show stopper and topped with freshly sliced strawberry and kiwi gives it a very tropical look. I go the easy way of making the base with crushed digestive biscuits.

1 packet (200grams) digestive biscuits,

Bliz the biscuits using a blender. Add butter to the crushed biscuits and gently press the mixture to spring foam baking tin. Place the tin in the refrigerator for 30 mins.

    I was always thought that cheese cake are to be just bought. Your recipe looked simple so gave it a shot. Was delicious. I used choclate syrup and starberries for decoration. This is really a failproof recipe. Thanks and keep going
