Tangy Lemon Cheesecake

This Tangy Lemon Cheesecake is to die for, it is extremely delicious and creamy, a must-have!

We have done multiple different cheesecake videos and tutorials before, but we have never done the true Tangy Lemon Cheesecake.

This recipe, if followed precisely can create a cheesecake that is perfect for any occasion!

Whether you have guests coming home or are just making this for comfort, this is truly an awesome recipe!

Here are some recommended tips for this recipe:

  1. It is important to let your cheesecake rest in the oven for a while before removing it, this reduces the chances of getting cracks!
  2. While we are on the topic of cracks, we should probably mention that they happen to the best of us. Cracks are may feel extremely annoying but they do happen! (As long as you follow our recipe well, it should be alright!)
  3. Fixing cracks is super simple you just have to cover the crack with some fruits or sauces (We recommend using a strawberry coulis and also try using some blueberries (Delicious!))
  4. Do not use spreadable cream cheese for this recipe, utilise a full 8oz block as these provide promising results. We recommend using Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese for this recipe.
  5. If there is anything else we can do to assist you (or if you have a crack in your cheesecake!), please use our live chat below or e-mail us directly at [email protected] so we can help you. (Please e-mail or chat with us with any questions that may occur during the preparation of your dish) We always look forward to helping you!
