        I haven’t tried this recipe yet.. but I’m trying to find something with a bit of lemon/citrus to it.. could I just add a little fresh lemon juice in? Or will that prevent it from setting?

          hmmmm I'd be wary Teneille. I think it could prevent it from setting.

        The base of mine was very soggy and cakelike. Is this normal? I’ve never cooked a baked cheesecake before.

          Hi Susannah, No it should be more of a shortbread texture.
          Next time make sure to bake the base a few mins longer so it’s more golden and more like a shortbread texture
          If not baked long enough in the beginning, it will be a bit soggy and cake like.

          Hi Bridget - sorry for the delay. I haven't tried this with gluten free flour but I can't see why it wouldn't work. I'd love you to let us know how it goes. :)

        So easy! The texture was devine, melted in my mouth!

        Next time I will cook the base a bit longer than I did. I went for closer to 15 mins as I often over cook bases, but next time will go for the twenty mins so its more solid!

        I will also add extra passionfruit as I like it strong ;) But most like it a bit more moderate than me!

        Tastes devine!! Total hit :)

          Sorry Kerry, I have only just seen this - whilst I haven't frozen that particular one I have frozen others and they have been nice. I don't see this one being any different.

        Could you not put the sugar in at all? Or could I just put some natvia in? Husband is T1 diabetic so don't want to make it with sugar

        Reply

        • thermofun says

          Kirsty I haven't made it without the sugar so it would be a trial and error I guess - Could I suggest making a comment on the Facebook page and see if others have tried.

        I am wanting to make this cheesecake this afternoon, but do not have any sour cream. But I do have HOMEMADE natural yoghurt (made in thermo) in fridge....am wandering if I could use 100g yoghurt to replace the 100g sour cream in this recipe?

        • thermofun says

          only one way to find out Brigitte! :) I reckon it would be ok though!

        This has been a regular to make since the Cook Along. It's lovely. Also, long story short, I offered a piece to a tradesman doing some work while I was baking it. I'm sure it was the reason I got a whopping discount on the job! So if you hv any tradesmen coming...bake this cheesecake and give it a go! Lol

          Thanks Tania! I do remember you telling us that in the Cook Along fb group! I often think of your story and have a laugh! :)
