    Lovely slice made a few times now always perfect. Recipe has obviously been amended I still use half as much lemon juice as I don't like too much lemon and it works out just fine. Thanks X

  • Thanks everyone for your

    Thanks everyone for your comments and feedback. My base was a bit mushy, but I think I also used a few more biscuits than in the recipe conversion to make it slightly thicker.

    The overall cake isn't hard or crunchy like regular cheese cakes.

    But I love the feedback and I will take in the recommendations and adjust the recipe.

  • I really loved the look of

    I really loved the look of this recipe but after reading through the comments I made some modifications and it turned out beautifully. For the base, I just added 25g of milk instead of 125g. I also let the base set in the freezer for 20 minutes before adding the cream cheese top layer.

    In the cream cheese top layer I used 40g of lemon juice instead of 125g.

    Everything else remained the same. 

    Next time I would double the cream cheese layer to make a thicker topping.

  • Is the base mixture supposed

    Submitted by denf1704 on 9. August 2014 - 12:09.

    Is the base mixture supposed to be very mushy - sort of like baby food rather than a biscuit crumb base.  Mine was quite mushy.  It's in the fridge setting with the cream cheese mixture on top now, so will have to wait & see how it goes.  I would probably add less lemon juice in the cream cheese mixture next time (if the base turns out ok).

  • Not sure if it was something

    Submitted by jacahli2 on 3. August 2014 - 21:36.

    Not sure if it was something i did wrong but i just ended up with a soggy mess. Tasted nice but not a success at all. I'm sure i used the correct and right amount of ingredients. I hate wasting food so i wont try this again, unless someone else has had success.
