Just-for-one mini lemon cheesecake

Just-for-one mini lemon cheesecake

These cheesecakes may be little in size, but they’re big on the flavour of tangy lemon + fragrant peaches. Made in a muffin tin, each cheesecake is a perfect size just for one

Ingredients

Method

  • 40 g/1½ oz unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing
  • 80 g/3 oz pecan nuts
  • 50 g/1¾ oz porridge oats
  • 30 g/1 oz ground almonds
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or clear honey
  • 175 g/6 oz cream cheese
  • 100 g/3½ oz natural yogurt
  • Finely grated rind of 1 lemon + juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or clear honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1½ teaspoons cornflour
  • 4 ripe peaches, halved, stoned + chopped

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease + line 10 holes of a muffin tin with baking parchment by cutting 2 folded strips of baking parchment + pressing them into the first hole to form a cross shape. Repeat with the remaining holes.
  2. To make the cheesecake base, whiz the pecans + oats in a mini food processor, then tip them into a bowl + stir in the ground almonds. Melt the butter in a small saucepan with the maple syrup or honey, then stir it into the pecan mixture. Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared muffin tin holes + press it down to make a firm base. Bake for 5 minutes, then remove from the oven.
  3. To make the filling, beat together all the ingredients, apart from the peaches, until smooth + creamy. Spoon the mixture over the nutty base + level the tops, then return to the oven for a further 15–20 minutes until firm + just set – the filling should still have a slight wobble. Leave to cool in the tin, then chill for 20 minutes.
  4. When ready to serve, remove the cheesecakes from the muffin tin + peel off the paper strips. Spoon the peaches on top before serving.

Swap This For That

If peaches aren't in season, used tinned peaches or defrosted frozen berries instead

Yummy For Babies

For little ones from 10 months, make the cheesecakes with maple syrup instead of honey to serve. A mashed-up half portion will be enough.
