This was certainly quick and easy. It doesn't have a true cheesecake texture, but still a very nice dessert. I found it a bit sweet, but DH who usually doesn't like sweet things loved it. Personally myself I would have put it in a 20 cm tin, just because I prefer my fillings on the deeper side. Will try it with a tropical jello next time.

5 stars!! I was handed this recipe from my mum (minus the cinnamon) about 20 years ago, I have made it countless times and it is perfect EVERY time. I like to top it with extra lemon jelly made with half only half the water and pour over the top to set, looks pretty and my kids love it. A have to try recipe, thanks for posting!
