Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.
Today I made this Delightful Lemon Cheesecake, a taste of heaven…
Here is the recipe, enjoy!
- 6 egg whites
- a few drops lemon juice
- 1 1/4 cup (150 g) powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 1/4 cups (375 g) ground almonds
Put the egg whites and lemon juice into a mixing bowl and whisk until frothy. Add the powdered sugar, little by little, and continue whisking until fluffy.
Add the vanilla extract and whisk for two more minutes.
Add the ground almonds.
Fold the ground almonds into the mixture using a rubber spatula.
Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 10 or 11-inch (26-28 cm) baking pan.
Bake in a 350˚F (180˚C) oven for about 30 minutes.
Leave to cool completely.
Delightful Lemon cheesecake (the filling)
- 1 almond base (as described above)
- 14 oz. (400 g) cream cheese
- 1 cup (125 g) powdered sugar
- 2 1/4 cups (500 ml) heavy cream, whipped
- 2 packets lemon jelly powder
- fresh berries
- marshmallows, to decorate (optional)
Prepare the lemon jelly, but use 1 2/3 cup water only for both packets. Set aside to cool.
Arrange some fresh berries on top of the almond base, still in its pan.
Put the cream cheese and powdered sugar into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy.
Whisk the heavy cream until soft peaks form, then fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
Carefully pour in the cooled, semi-set jelly and mix until well blended.
Pour the lemon cheesecake mixture over the almond base and berries and smooth the surface.
Chill for at least 4 hours, alternatively freeze for 1-2 hours.
Transfer the cake to a cake stand or plate.
This cheesecake is perfect as it is, but I love to decorate with some pastel colored marshmallows…
I like to tie a pale yellow ribbon around the cake as well…
Decorate with some fresh lemon slices.
And I give you… Delightful Lemon Cheesecake.
The combination of silky cream cheese and fresh lemon is fantastic, add some fresh berries as well and it’s a flavor sensation!
I hope I was able to tempt you!
I treated myself to a slice of this with a cup of coffee, so fresh and delicious!
Wishing you all a wonderful day,
hugs from me to you.
