It tastes so indulgent but this Easy Lemon Cheesecake is quick to prepare and requires no baking. It’s irresistibly creamy, with a delicious lemon flavour.


  • 1 1/4 cups (140 g) of sweet biscuit crumbs
  • 1/3 cup (80 g) of melted butter
  • 500g of cream cheese, softened
  • 400g can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 teaspoons of gelatine, dissolved in 1/4 cup of boiling water
  • 1/3 cup of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of grated lemon rind


  1. Grease and line a 20 cm (8 inch) round springform pan.
  2. In a medium bowl mix together the biscuit crumbs and melted butter and then press the mixture into the base of the springform pan – place base in fridge to chill.
  3. Using an electric mixer beat the softened cream cheese until it is smooth (make sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl occasionally).
  4. Add in the condensed milk and gelatine mixture and again beat until the mixture is smooth (occasionally scraping down the sides of the bowl).
  5. Add the lemon juice and lemon rind and beat again until all combined.
  6. Pour mixture into the prepared base and refrigerate for several hours – best if left to chill overnight.
