Zesty Lemon Cheesecake

Yesterday afternoon Himself and I went for a stroll, picked up a gorgeous bunch of flowers from our local seller and when we got back, I decided to make my first ever cheesecake!

pour the melted butter over the top and mix well. Press into the base of a spring form cake tin and place in the fridge to chill whilst you make the topping.

In a separate bowl, add the cheese, caster sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and whip until combined.
