This zesty lemon cheesecake is deliciously refreshing and would be a great dessert choice for any occasion. The base is packed with the flavours of gingernut biscuits and Billington's molasses sugar and topped with a smooth, creamy layer of lemon infused cream cheese making this no ordinary cheesecake. One slice of this and we guarantee you will be coming back for more.


  1. Grease a 20cm springform cake tin and line with non-stick baking parchment.

  2. In a small pan gently melt together the butter and Molasses sugar until all of the sugar has dissolved. Crush the biscuits and add to the melted butter. Stir together until completely coated.

  3. Press the biscuit mix firmly into the base of the prepared tin using the back of a spoon until smooth and level. Chill whilst making the cheesecake topping.

  4. For the topping, mix together the Mascarpone cheese, sifted icing sugar,  lemon zest and juice. Mix just until combined and smooth. Spoon onto the biscuit base and level the top before placing in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours to set.

  5. When ready to serve remove the cheesecake from the tin and decorate with the sliced lemon and a light dusting of icing sugar.

    This is an amazing recipe, I have used it without the lemons and used soft fruit stead, so far have tried with blackberries, raspberries as well as blueberries. Not altogether but on separate occasions, as there are only the two of us, I use had the recipe amounts, otherwise it would get eaten too quickly. This is a favourite with us and friends that I have told them where to find the recipe.

    Made this using strawberries instead of the lemon, as there are lots garden in the garden. Really tasty.

    This is the best cheesecake ever. Everyone that have tried it have asked for the recipe. Best part is it doesn't need baking and is real very quickly, please note it won't last for long!
