Try James Martin's luscious lemony cheesecakes for an easy and elegant answer to a speedy but special dessert


1. Crush the biscuits into small pieces and combine with the butter and honey. Put this mixture into 4 metal rings and press evenly into the bottom of the moulds.

2. Stir the lemon juice, zest and icing sugar into the cheese, being sure not to mix it too much as this will cause the mixture to split. Taste as you go - if you have very juicy lemons you may not need all the juice.

3. Spoon the mix into the rings and use a palette knife to press it down to prevent air gaps. Sit onto serving plates and remove the rings, loosening with with a hot cloth or blowtorch.

4. Decorate the tops with the strawberries and sprigs of fresh mint. Spoon the sauce around the side and top with spun sugar.

Hi can you also make this is one big tin as opposed to four small tins, if so are the ingredients the same.

Thanks Jules

Hi colinM59192, you can get them from catering supply shops, or online at places like Amazon - look for chef rings. Hope that helps.

I made this cheesecake yesterday but instead of using lemon & strawberries I used Lime & Mango puree and it tastes mind blowing . If you want to set your mango puree so it is more solid just mix it with powdered geletine and sit in the fridge for a few hours . My son loved it too and he doesnt even eat cheesecake .

I found this recepie very easy to follow, I grated lemon zest and 70% choclate on the top with the spun sugar then over it. Looked and tasted fab!

I have used this recipe a few times and used Lime instead of lemon Just as good, and went really nice with the strawberries
