Easy lemon cheese cake desert

Everyone has that “go to” recipe that they can whip up in little to know time, the one they can count on it not to flop.

My “go to” desert recipe is this easy lemon cheese cakey type of desert.

Many years ago when I lived in the small town of Aberdeen in the Eastern Cape, one of my friends taught me to make this.

It really is very easy and uses just for ingredients.

You will need:-

  • 1 packet of tennis biscuits
  • 2 tins of condense milk
  • Lemon juice
  • Margarine
  • Mixing bowl
  • Large glass casserole bowl

How to make your desert

Place your tennis biscuits in a mixing bowl and finely crush them using a potato masher. You can also place them in a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to crush them but I find the potato masher works faster and gives me a more even sized crumb.

Place about 4 heaped tablespoons of margarine in the microwave to melt.

Pour the melted margarine into the biscuit crumbs and mix thoroughly to form a base. If this is too dry add more margarine until you get the right consistency and if your mixture is to soft and wet add more crushed biscuits.

Next, squeeze generously about 15ml of lemon juice per tin of condense milk. The more lemon juice you add the tartier the taste.

Mix until you notice the condense milk becoming thicker as it reacts to the lemon juice.

Line your casserole dish base with biscuit and pie mix on top.

Place in fridge until chilled.

You can decorate the top with cherries, cream, lemon rind or mint leaves.
