Accessories you need



* This dish was a dessert staple in our household when I was growing up, and has great sentimental value. It is perfect to serve at a BBQ, and single serving sizes make it easy to dish out to your guests!

* You could make this traditionally in a cheesecake tin. Press base firmly into tin and top with filling. This will need 3hrs or so to set. It is a very light and fluffy cheesecake

* Add more lemon juice if you want more of a lemony bite to your cheesecake

* When your (or your neighbours!!) lemon tree is full of lemons, squeeze the juice of a few into containers and freeze for later.

* Use a potato peeler (the Thermomix toolkit has a fab peeler) to remove the skin from your lemons, and freeze in a zip lock bag. Milling to create a fine zest is easy when frozen - 10 seconds/speed 10

    We made this as a whole cheesecake and topped it with fresh strawberries and kiwifruit. It is divine; light and fluffy as the title suggests!
