200g digestive biscuits, finely crushed
100g unsalted butter, melted
2 x 250g LANCEWOOD® Full Fat Cream Cheese Plain, room temperature
140g castor sugar
30ml cake flour
3 extra large eggs
250ml LANCEWOOD® Sour Cream, room temperature
125ml lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons, finely grated
130g castor sugar
125ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
Zest of 1 lemon, finely grated
60g unsalted butter
1 extra large egg plus 2 egg yolks
250ml lemon curd
2 extra large egg whites
120g castor sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C. Spray 20cm springform pan with non-stick spray or line with baking paper. Add butter to crushed biscuits and mix. Press onto base and up sides of springform pan. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes and remove from oven. Leave to cool.
Increase oven temperature to 230°C. Beat cream cheese with electric beater until creamy and smooth. Add castor sugar and cake flour and mix. Add eggs one at a time. Add sour cream, lemon juice and lemon zest and mix well. Pour onto prepared crust and bake for 10 minutes. Turn temperature down to 110°C and bake for further 30 minutes. Switch oven off and leave to cool in oven (for at least 2 hours).
Combine castor sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest and butter in saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar has melted. Beat egg and egg yolks in separate bowl. Add small amounts of the warm mixture to sugar and butter mixture while stirring continuously. Pour back into saucepan and stir continuously over low heat until mixture starts to thicken – it will cover the back of a spoon if it’s ready. Do not let it boil. Cool before use. If you need it to cool quickly, spread over a flat baking sheet that’s been cooled in the freezer.
Beat egg whites and castor sugar in a heatproof bowl. Place bowl over saucepan of boiling water – bowl should not touch water. Beat for 5 - 7 minutes until thick. Transfer to cool bowl and beat for further 3 - 5 minutes to cool down.
Spread lemon curd over cooled cheesecake and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Spoon or pipe meringue over lemon curd layer and brown lightly with kitchen blow torch.
