Key Lime Cheesecake

Butter, melted

Thin lime slices (optional see tip)

8

Icing sugar (optional)

Step 2 of 3

In a large bowl, whisk together the soft cheese and condensed milk until smooth. Add the lime zest and juice (watch it thicken!). Spoon the mixture over the base and chill for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.

Step 3 of 3

Remove the cheesecake from the tin and place on a serving plate. Drizzle the melted chocolate over the top and sides, then leave to set.

To finish, gently simmer the extra lime slices in a little icing sugar and water – there should be barely enough water to cover the slices. The syrup will reduce to a sticky coating on the limes. Transfer the lime slices to baking parchment to set before placing on the cheesecake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and easy to make cheesecake I made this for a church afternoon tea event and it was gone very quickly. Looks beautiful and tastes even better and so so easy to make.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It’s a favourite! This is one of the easiest cheesecakes to make and has the best, zingiest lime flavour of any I’ve tried. It’s a favourite in our house, both to eat with family or for a dinner party. Personally I don’t bother with the lime slices but the dark chocolate drizzle is a nice sweet contrast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make this often Make this (or a version of) every couple of months and whole family enjoy I just whisk up a pot of double cream with the condensed milk which lime zests onto a biscuit base (make it chocolate digestives for extra yums)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's never too difficult I love cheesecake. Never made a cheesecake before and always wanted to. Saw this recipe and thought I'd give it a bash. It's now 1 of 3 cheesecakes I make and I've never had a bad word said about any of them. All the other cheesecake recipes I've used are on here aswell. If you're a bit hesitant....use this one first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cheesecake I made the line cheesecake with full fat condensed milk and only used 3 limes. (I only had 3!) It was very easy and tasted much better than shop bought. I didn't decorate it with chocolate either as having kicked the bowl, I just didn't think it needed it. I am keen to try it with lemons next, and perhaps a little ginger in the biscuit base. So many variations possible :)
