It’s no secret, lemon is my absolute favourite flavour in sweets and desserts, tangy and sweet, citusy, zingy, invigorating…. If you love cheesecake and you love lemon meringue pie then this is gonna ROCK YOUR WORLD! When I travelled to the Italian Aeolian island of my heritage, Salina, and around the Amalfi Coast I was seduced by the fragrant aroma of lemons filling the air. They were growing everywhere and are the basis of so many regional dishes both sweet and savory, as well as drinks, liqueur and gelato… and a mixture of all of the above! So that explains it.. no wonder I’m such a lemon lover.. its in my blood!
I was given a lemon tree for my birthday one year which was so very exciting. I envisioned my idyllic life in a Garden of Eden of lemons dripping from the tree and all the delicious desserts and cakes I could make whenever the moment struck me. But alas, unlike my ability to turn anything into a delicious dessert, I was NOT blessed with a green thumb. My little lemon tree is not the bearer of loveliness, it is, well, more of a scrawny twig 🙁 So its off to the green grocer I go to stock up on lemons.
I make this dessert in a mini cheesecake tin but if you don’t have one, or have trouble finding one, never mind, you can make it in cupcake liners in a muffin tin and it will turn out just as delicious. I hope you love this recipe as much as I do, It may look complicated at a glance but it is really very straightforward… so give it a go 🙂
