Recipe: Cheery Lemon Cheesecake

Now THAT is a ruddy cheesecake! Haha, so happy how this turned out, when I was taking it out of the tin I was practically laughing with happiness in my kitchen- my neighbours must think I'm completely barmy. They probably aren't wrong actually. This is creamy, tangy, with a sweet cheerio base, and it's also MASSIVE, so it's good for feeding a lot of people.

Cheery Lemon Cheesecake (serves 10)

150g Cheerios
90g butter
1kg cream cheese
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
325g lemon curd
85g sugar
1 x 4g sachet gelatine powder
100ml warm water
Optional: couple of slices of lemon for garnish

1) Blitz the Cheerios in a food processor to a fine crumb. Melt the butter, mix in the Cheerios, and press firmly into a loose bottomed 20cm tin.
2) Mix the gelatine powder in the warm water until dissolved. Mix the cream cheese, lemon zest and juice, lemon curd, sugar and gelatine mixture until very well combined. Pour into the tin, and set in the fridge for at least 5 hours.
3) Remove from the tin, and garnish as desired.
