Lemon Cherry Cheesecake


Happy Easter!!! I love Easter! Yes, this year has been super, super cold so far but Easter always promises daffodils, idyllic walks, warming weather, new life, and all my favourite spring flavours!


Lemon Cherry Cheesecake


Lemon being high up there on the list!!! When I know spring and Easter are on the way I fancy lemon cupcakes, lemon cookies and all sorts of lemon goodies! The colours are just right!


Lemon Cherry Cheesecake


For some reason recently cherry and lemon has just been a magic combination for me – lemon cherry smoothies in the morning with oats, rice milk, lemon and, of course, cherries – is just heavenly! A lemon, cherry and almond chocolate bar that is so divine – I promise to share soon!!!

Once again I have used my favourite dalfour jam, anyone who knows me know I can’t resist! It’s just too good for words ad really adds to this dessert! Make sure that you follow the timing on the agar agar – it gives it a real cheesecake finish and is firm enough that you can even transport it – providing you’re not going too far on a super-hot day!!!
