Thank you for such a wonderful recipe, used it for a dinner party and everyone thought I was an amazing cook for once. Makes plenty for 8 people not just 2 though. Very good with grated plain chocolate over the top instead of the lime.

Thanks you for a lovely recipe, i managed to fit everything into a 6inch wide 4inch deep cake tin . on reading other comments i feel if i had put it in a larger tin would have just been a thin bottom and we like a nice thick one, So i guess just personal choice. I have to say i am not a fan of cheese cake but i really enjoyed this. We got 4 good size portions out of it. :-)

Lovely cheesecake, light and creamy. Main comment is that the quantity on this recipe is wrong. It serves far more than 2 people! There were 4 of us so bearing other comments in mind and to be on the safe side I upped the quantities by a third. I didn't have any Ring moulds so made it in a loose bottom 8inch cake tin. It made a decent sized cheesecake which would have served 10-12 people! Also didn't put as much as 8 pieces of ginger in and it still tasted good and gingery.

1st time forgot to put in syrup and ginger, horrendous. Just made it again with 4 bits ginger, half the syrup and then forgot the lime juice, not bad though, definite improvement!

A wonderful recipe - but could be even more gingery for those who wish a little more bite ;-). I doubled the quantities, used chocolate ginger biscuits, made a more concentrated syrup to give the extra ginger flavour and also some plain choc curls shaved from a choc ginger Lindt bar. Made for New Year Party last year and requested again for the same party this year

Not tried yet but need for a desert for a party of 33, so need to make ahead and freeze. Also I guess from comments it feeds far more than 2. Obviously it will only be one
pud to choose from

Brilliant cheese cake, only used half the recipe for two people and had plenty to go round. Used low fat ingredients and tasted wonderful.

lovely cheese cake but i doubled up on this as it said it was for 2 people and i needed it to feed 4 big mistake the cheese cake was huge and enough to feed an army

Lovely recipe! I only had digestives instead of ginger nuts so I added 1tsp of ground ginger to the biscuit mix and a tablespoon of the ginger syrup from the jar and one piece of finely chopped stem ginger.
I also thought 8 pieces of stem ginger in the topping was too much so I used 3 and that was plenty.
Other than that it was rich and delicious, I loved it! (oh and it doesn't feed only 2, it's definitely more like 6-8 portions)

Looks & sounds delicious - but an awful lot of cheese & cream for 2 people. I've seen cheesecakes that are supposed to serve 12 with less! Think I'd make it go a bit further.

Really easy and really tasty. Have made this for Christmas dinner for the past two years and will make again this. I'm not one for puds but this is light and not too sweet! Yummy!
