For months my brother has been asking me to make him a lemon and lime cheesecake. We got invited over for Sunday dinner and while I was lying in bed, it dawned on me that I can make his cheesecake him and we can have it for dessert. This cheesecake is so simple but yet so full of flavour, I used an 8 inch spring form tin as it makes it easier to get the cheesecake out.
Both the zest and juice of the lemon and limes was used in this cheesecake so there is no waste there. I got this great tool for juicing the lemon and limes which makes it so much cleaner and easier to get every drop of juice out of the fruit. It is called a Trudeau Lemon Squeezer and I never thought I would need something like it as I had always been taught to squeeze the juice into my hand and catch the pips but this tool is perfect and I’m so glad I got one as makes squeezing the fruit easier.
Cheesecake was a huge hit and even though me and mum were a little late, my brother did appreciate it once he realised what I had been doing. One thing I would defiantly change is I would use more biscuits for the base and I defiantly did not give the base enough time to set before adding the topping.
