Lemon/lime curd baked cheesecake 5 0 5 1
  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 3 hrs
  • 15 mins

    3 hrs

    3 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: At least 8 depending on your slice size



1 pkt sweet biscuits crumbed (I used scotch finger)

80gms melted butter


500gms cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup caster sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

300ml sour cream

375ml lemon/lime curd (I made my own and recipe is on this website)


1Combine biscuit crumbs and melted butter. Will look a little crumbly but don't be tempted to add more butter as it will press down and moisture will also be added from topping.

2Press in a tin lined with alfoil and then baking paper, this will make it easier to get out of your tin later without the baking paper ripping.


4Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth.

5Add eggs and beat till smooth.

6Fold in sour cream.

7Fold in curd, keeping some aside.

8Pour into tin then swirl rest of curd on the top.

9Put a couple of inches of water in sc then a rack or scrunched up foil balls.

10Place tin in sc making sure it isn't in water then cook on high with tea towel under lid for 3hrs or until centre doesn't have a watery consistency when knife is placed in.

11This has a tarty taste so if you don't like that replace lemon/lime curd with caramel, chopped fruit or whole berries :)

This cheesecake turned out so good I could have eaten the whole thing! I did reduce the sugar to about 3/4 of the 1/2 cup and cooked it about 3.5 hours in my Crockpot Express XL. I found it wasn’t overly sweet or rich, and the lemon curd not to be too tart (I prefer lemon to be tart than too sweet, personally.). Will definitely make again, and might try with other options like caramel or berries.
