This lemon cheesecake is super easy to bake and only uses five ingredients! It’s the perfect dessert for summer celebrations and is a lovely and light way to finish a meal. It’s a little different from the traditional cheesecake in that it uses a packet-mix vanilla cake to cut down on preparation time and bring that super fluffy texture to the finished cake.
While it may sound odd, it’s definitely delicious! Cream cheese, icing sugar and lemon curd help create that classic creamy and zesty filling that really is hard to beat on a hot day. While cheesecakes can sometimes be a little fussy, this version is beginner level and should be a piece of cake — pardon the pun — for even the most cautious of bakers.
If you’re making it for a special occasion, pipe extra icing on top, decorate with fruit or even assemble some edible flowers on top for a pretty finish.
