Recipe's preparation

  1. Line the base of a 20cm or 22cm springform tin.

    To prepare base:

    Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees Celcius.

    Add biscuits to the TM bowl and press the turbo button in short bursts until finely crushed.

    Add melted butter and mix on speed 4 for 10 seconds.

    Transfer the biscuit mixture to the tin and press firmly into the base and sides. Place in the fridge to chill.

    To prepare filling:

    To a clean TM bowl add the cream cheese, rind, juice, sour cream and sugar and mix on speed 6 for 30 seconds (using the spatula to assist) or until smooth.

    Scrape down the sides of the TM bowl and add the eggs. Mix on speed 5 for 15 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl again and mix on speed 5 for a further 15 seconds, or until combined.

    Pour cheese mixture into the base and bake for 1 hour or until just set in the centre.

    Turn the oven off and leave to cool with the oven door ajar (to stop cheesecake cracking).

    Place in the fridge overnight (or for at least 2 - 4 hours) to chill.

    To prepare meringue:

    Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celcius.

    Whisk the egg whites until firm peaks form. Add sugar gradually and whisk until mixture is glossy and thick and the sugar has dissolved.

    Spoon onto the top of the cheesecake and spread right to the edges.

    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. This can happen quite quickly so make sure you check it regularly.

    Return to the fridge to chill before serving (not essential if you don't have the time).

    Submitted by MeganW on 4. July 2016 - 11:08.

    Not sure what I did wrong but mine has cracked while cooking? This is my first baked cheesecake so I'm definitely a novice! 

    edit: this was amazing!! Mine did crack while cooking but with meringue on top you couldn't tell. Will definitely make again - was fantastic. Pleased my lemon meringue living husband, as I've been unable to perfect the lemon curd and meringue combo without the meringue "floating". 

    i did the meringue in stand mixer also using the same quantities as recipe and turned out great! Thank you :)

    This cheesecake is incredible! I used the meringue recipe from the EDC, but I think if you used this recipe and just heated to 50C while beating the eggs etc that it would turn out great (that's to try next time). Thanks for a wonderful recipe, it'll be a regular for parties for us!

    Submitted by lynx_stevens on 3. November 2015 - 15:23.

    I love this recipe. I used to make it exactly the same before I got my thermomix but this makes it so much easier, I like others still use my kitchenaid for the meringue. I do mine in muffin pans in patty paper cases, I get about 24 from a batch and just cook for bout 20-25mins, just depending on your oven. Works out great for parties and taking to work. .

    I have made this a few times now, but no luck with the meringue, so I use the EDC lemon meringue pie recipe for the meringue.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe

    Fabulous recipe. I didn't put the meringue on top, just had the cheesecake part and it was amazing. I did make an easy raspberry coulis to go with it which finished it off perfectly. Tasted even better the next day for lunch.  ;)

    Yum. This was delish. Hubby doesn't like cheesecake but does like lemon meringue pie. Thought I'd try this (as I love cheesecake) and was a huge success. Mixed the meringue in thermy but used the butterfly, added a pinch of salt and heated to 37 degrees as I was whipping. great recipe!!!

  • Beautifully moist cheesecake!

    Submitted by Thermomistress on 20. October 2013 - 23:14.

    Beautifully moist cheesecake! Delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    I too made my meringue in my kitchenaid instead of the thermomix. The tip I got for doing it in the thermomix was to clean the TM bowl with vinegar before making the meringue to make sure it was extra clean. Residue in the bowl will cause the meringue to fail.

    Beautiful main part of the cheesecake but the meringue failed. I have used another recipe in another appliance so will try with less caster sugar as per that recipe. Great texture and base though.

    Thanks for the lovely comments folks! I still prefer my kitchenaid to make the meringue as I love a glossy thick meringue as have yet to be able to reproduce that in the Thermie. So glad you all loved it!

    Cheers  :D

    Hi Tash,
    This recipe from last year's calendar: http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/node/10500 is a fantastic meringue recipe and I had great success. Give this one a go in your TM. Just make sure you clean it out well first, if there's any oil in the jug it will prevent the eggs from frothing.

    <one day, I will get around to doing this properly...>

    Hi Maddy,

    I used my Kitchen Aid to mix the meringue, blasphemous I know, but I haven't had a huge amount of success using the TM for the egg whites as yet.

    Good luck and hope you enjoy it!!

    Tash, did you whisk the eggs in the TM, or use a mixer instead?     Can't wait to make this!
