      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Let the rind air-dry before milling (or wrap in kitchen towel) to remove some of the moisture.

Low-fat cream cheese can also be used.

    Wonderful! I made a biscuit base using half ginger nut biscuits, half arrowroots. Also used lime instead of lemon as it's what I had. Everyone raved about it!

    I have just baked this and had to put oven temp down at 150 the last 15 minutes and switch oven off at 35 minutes. It looks really brown, what do you recommend to avoid this? I have not tasted yet, will let you know about the taste! Cheers

    This is really good but a little runny compared to other cheesecakes. I did add more lemon juice, which it really did need. Maybe that made it a little runnier, not sure. But delicious just the same.
