You don't need the brown sugar in the base and you need a little bit more butter because the base doesn't set properly. I personaly added ginger nuts in the mascapone mix and put the rest on top of the cheesecake. Definatley lemony enough. I loved the zingeyness. Xx

Thanks for your comment, my Dad and I unfortunately have a very sweet tooth! But yes it can always be taken out. Ginger sounds like a nice idea though!
