Lemon Cheescake

March 27, 2009
This one is a vegetarian dish (not vegan)…

150g speculoos biscuits

50g melted butter

250g mascarpone

250g cream cheese

2 lemons: zest and juice

50g caster sugar (more if you don’t like it tart)

2 tsps agar agar powder dissolved in 100mls boiling water (if you used boiling water from a kettle you will need to bring the mixture back to the boil – stick it in the microwave for 30secs).

Crush biscuits, mix with melted butter. Put into a loose bottomed flan tin* and chill.

* or you can make individual ones like the one pictured (will make at least 6)

Humpbuckle Hint:

top with some lovely, tart, fresh fruit like slices of kiwi fruit, French of course, in season. Or strawberries or raspberries… or whatever you fancy

    Having been invited to eat ‘ chez Andrea et Bruce ‘ last night I would like to shout out to the world that I ate that very cheesecake in the above photo and my goodness, what a delight! With just the right amount of sweet, tart and fruitiness, who could want more???
    I highly recommend trying this recipe out and what a perfect way to end a spring or summer evening in La Creuse!!
