Baked Lemon Cheesecake

This afternoon I made a baked lemon cheesecake for sunday dinner dessert :) I’m still waiting for it to cool down so I can take it out the tin.

The recipe is:
  • 225g digestive biscuits
  • 100g melted butter
  • 250g mascarpone
  • 600g cream cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • Zest of 4 lemons, juice of 2
Just take to the pack of digestives with a rolling pin and throw it in with the butter (I always use Olivio marg.)  Whisk the rest together and bake at gas mark 4 for an hour.
I also threw the left over lemons in to a jug of sparkling water as it’s a super hot day in England and I hate waste.

Cheesecake Brownies

This morning I was inspired by this post and decided to go ahead and try it out myself. The original recipe is by David Lebovitz and you can find it here . The baking tray I used was too big so they’re far too thin :( I need to double up next time.

The photos really don’t do them any justice! My DLSR is broke and I can’t afford to get it fixed so I’m currently using my Blackberry to take photos of my makes and bakes. Enjoy!
