Lemon Cheese Cake recipe

I'm back for another update! Yeay! In my few last posts I did mentioned that I baked a lemon cheesecake with my housemates right? So this post is basically about the BAKE A CHEESE CAKE DAY! XD

Firstly, we searched for the recipe in the internet and came to a website : Baked Lemon Cheesecake form www.bestrecipes.com.au
. You guys can check it out as well but below are the ingredients and the method of baking the lemon cheesecake.



250 g plain sweet biscuit crumbs
125 g butter, melted
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup of caster sugar
3 x 250 g packets cream cheese, softened
3 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/4 of cup of lemon juice


1. Lightly grease a 22 cm spring form tin.
2. Combine biscuits and butter in a bowl.
3. Using a glass, press crumb mixture evenly over base and side of tin.
4. Refrigerate biscuit crust for an hour.
5. Beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer in a bowl until pale and thick.
6. Add cheese, rind and lemon juice. Beat until mixture is smooth and creamy.
7. Pour mixture into a prepared tin and bake in moderate oven for about 45 minutes.
8. Cool in oven with door ajar, then refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
9. Decorate with cream or strawberries if desired.


Beating the eggs and cheese can take a very long time - sometimes 10 minutes or more. Please be patient, as the mixture become more pale, the lighter textured the cheesecake will be. The low fat variety of cheesecake works equally well with no loss of flavour. I bake the cheesecake at 160C in a non fan- forced electric oven.


Well there you have it ; the recipe and the method. You guys must try it out!!!!
Anyway below are pictures that we took during the baking process. I'm sharing the fun with you guys!

Me and Michael . Michael was beating the biscuits in a plastic bag. All the ingredients were on the table.

This is Michael and Alice. A lovely couple from England. They are traveling in Australia and will leave soon in July.

"I'm gonna crush you all biscuits!", shouts Michael.

Alice was beating the egg.


Michael then transferred some biscuits to me to be further crushed. It's like working in a factory haha because of the labour division.

Me crushing the biscuits further.

Then I added melted butter in eat and mix them both together.

The biscuit crust. It was refrigerate for an hour as instructed.

The leftover biscuit crumbs.

In the mean time, Michael is grating the lemon for the rind.

Alice was lixing the butter, caster sugar and cream cheese with the electric mixer. We took turns to mix it.

An hour later it was time to pour the mixture on the crust.

I also want to pour!!!!

" Hey, what about me? " asked Alice. And so we let her pour as well XD haha

The cheesecake then was put into the preheated oven for 45 minutes.

After 45 minutes and left for cooling, it was then refrigerate overnight.

The final product. Beautiful ain't it? XD

Well that's all for now. Till next time then!
Ja, mata!
