Baked Lemon Cheesecake

Now you all know I am a huge fan of baked cheesecake, so here is my all time favourite recipe for a plain baked cheesecake, but a warning it is very dense and rich!

Ingredients

200gm plain sweet biscuit, crushed
125gm butter, melted
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup castor sugar
750gm cream cheese
3 tsp lemon rind
1/4 cup lemon juice

Method

  • Grease a 22cm spring form pan and preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius
  • Combine biscuit crumbs and butter and press into the tin and up the sides as well, refrigerate for one hour
  • Beat eggs and sugar until pale and thick
  • Add the cream cheese, rind and juice and beat until thick and smooth
  • Pour mixture into tin and bake for one hour or until set
  • Allow to cool in the oven with the door slightly cracked open this will help avoid cracking the top of the cheese cake.
