Coconut Lime Cheesecake

Totally hooked on lime these days. Seriously, I grab lime fruits every time I go to the supermarket and hoard them in the fridge. My excuse for doing that is, I don’t have my voice back fully yet (lost my voice a few weeks back due to a cold) so lime is handy with honey as a drink. Another excuse –  very handy when I come across recipes like this coconut lime cheesecake. Something tropical for dessert, for a change from the usual chocolate-y treats I make.Ingredients

Method

1.   Preheat oven to 180 C degrees.

2.   To make crust: Mix together biscuit crumbs, 2 tbs sugar, melted butter and salt. Press into the bottom of an 8 x 12cm pan or 8 x 8cm square pan. Set aside.

3.   To make cheesecake filling: Cream together cheese, sugar and flour until well combined. Add in lime zest, lime juice and vanilla and cream together until smooth. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in coconut flakes. Spread over prepared crust mixture.

4.   Bake for about 20-25 minutes. Let cool and refrigerate before serving.Enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee or maybe a Pina Colada cocktail. 🙂

      This was really nice. For some reason I got hooked on lime flavour lately. Saw the photo on Pinterest, then tracked where the photo was from. Thanks! And yeah, from Sydney as well 🙂
