I have just made this to take round to some friends for tea. I have made it before so i know its good. I leave the sugar out of the base , its got enough sugar in the topping. I too love the zingyness of the lemon. Yummy!

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!

Is it ok to freeze the cheesecake?
