Elderflower & Lime Cheesecake

Submitted by Mustard Comms 28 July 2011

A real taste of summer



3/4 large pack digestive biscuits

90g butter

60g sugar

360g full fat cream cheese

160ml double cream, lightly whipped

Icing sugar to taste

1 lime

Zest of 1 lemon

2tbs Belvoir Elderflower Cordial


1. Place the digestive biscuits in a large plastic bag. Hold one end of the bag and using a rolling pin, crush until they resemble fine breadcrumbs.

2. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and add the crushed biscuits and sugar until they are fully combined.

3. Press the biscuit mixture firmly into an 8” round tin with a lift up base and place in the fridge to set.

4. Wash the lemon and grate the skin using a fine grater or use a zester. Place this zest together with the cream cheese, icing sugar and lime juice in a food processor and mix well.

5. Then slowly add the cream and elderflower cordial until it is a smooth thick paste.

6. Spread this mixture on the biscuit base and refrigerate.

7. Just before serving, sprinkle the cheesecake with the zest of the lime.
