You will also need

  • 3 chenille chick (optional)

Method

  1. Grease a 18cm loose bottomed round cake tin with a little butter and line with a circle of baking paper. Melt the butter in a large heatproof bowl in the microwave or in a medium sized pan over a low heat. Whiz the chocolate digestives in a food processor until reduced to fine crumbs then tip into the melted butter. Spoon the biscuit mixture into the base of the prepared tin – press down well with the back of a spoon.

  2. In a large mixing bowl whisk together the rest of the cheesecake ingredients then pour into the tin. Smooth the top with a spatula then place in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.

  3. When you’re ready to serve carefully transfer the cheesecake to a serving plate or cake stand and sprinkle the top with coconut flakes – making a bigger mound in the centre then arrange the meringue nests on top. Fill the nests with mini eggs, extra sprinkling of coconut, hundreds & thousands and the fluffy chicks.

I made this for Easter Sunday and it was not good at all. It didn't set properly, I think it was probably over mixed making the philadelphia too runny (eager 4 year old helping me). So I put it in the freezer to make it more like a semifreddo, but even at that the flavour wasn't good and the condensed milk made it too sweet. It was my first time using condensed milk in a cheesecake and I wouldn't do it again.

tasted great and looked very pretty - but the lemon cheese mixture stayed sloppy so it dripped off the base. Maybe my 2 lemons were more juicy than most - would be more helpful to have the amount of juice in ml's.

This recipe is delicious. I had to beat the cheese mix for a long time (electric beaters) before it began to thicken. It is a soft set cheesecake, very light, and not too sweet despite all the condensed milk. I decorated mine differently for a more refined look.
