    Was looking for a really tangy cheesecake recipe and this one was perfect. Everyone they tasted it thought it was delicious and I’ve made it a few times now. Would really recommend to anyone. The ingredients are easy to buy and most of them were in my fridge before making the cheesecake which was a bonus.

  2. I made this and it’s delicious but I think I did something wrong. Mine di d not get firm like a cheesecake normally is. Any idea what happened?

    1. Hi Peter,
      Please take a look at step 2 of the instructions, there it will tell you when you need to add the zest and lemon juice. I wrote a typing error saying it was the topping when it should read ‘filling’ which I’ve corrected now!
      Thank you!

    1. Thanks I love cheese cake and have a great recipe like this but never thought of adding lemon – I love lemon with my vodka and tonics … why not with my cheese cake and coffee right? Thanks for the fix I’ll try this with my recipe … sounds yummy can’t wait….
