    Norahs Girl's Note:

    My favourite cheesecake--lovely and lemony. If you serve it plain, try it with some fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate!

      Delicious, thank you for posting. Due to a mistake of mine, the cheesecake came out slightly soft so I froze it - really great when served with fresh strawberries. I used Hobnobs instead of Digestives, nice and crunchy.

      I searched through about 15 fridge unbaked cheesecake receipes before I found yours. For some reason while reading your receipe I had a feeling you were South African and knew that it was exactly the type of cake we were looking at making. We are South African and live in Mauritius and are unable to pop over to Woolies to buy a heavenly fridge cheesecake... Your cheesecake was exactly what my mother and I were craving... THANKS!!!!
