Lemon is such a versatile fruit and makes an excellent addition to both sweet and savory recipes. Its distinct taste instantly brightens up family meals. There are many essential lemon health benefits and medicinal properties our body could use from consuming lemons such as calcium, potassium, vitamin C, and fiber. Lemons are also known for boosting the immune system. It has been proven that drinking warm lemon water on an empty stomach first thing in the morning aids a healthy digestive system by flushing toxins from our system.
Always keep in mind to bring the ingredients including butter and dairy items to room temperature when aiming for a smooth, lump-free cheesecake. Ingredients that are at room temperature blend a lot better than the ones straight out of the fridge. For achieving optimum lemon flavor, always make lemon desserts recipes with the real lemon juice or better yet add lemon zest instead of the artificial lemon extract. Because at the end of the day, the artificial flavors are just an imitation and will never match up to the taste of using real lemons. You won’t regret the extra work of squeezing the lemon juice or grating the zest. If you do not prefer store-bought lemon curd, you can make some at home by mixing egg yolks, sugar, milk, and lemon juice and cook it on medium to low until it becomes thick. You can add a tablespoon of cornstarch as a thickening agent. You’ll be surprised to see the delicious homemade lemon curd in less than fifteen minutes. You can also add toppings to the cheesecake with fresh fruits like chopped raspberries, peaches, kiwis or strawberries or sprinkle shavings of white chocolate or add a layer of marshmallow fluff. Anything works with a versatile recipe such as this lemon cheesecake.
