Chocolate & Lime Cheesecake

I was very lucky last month to have my sister come stay with me for a few days in between her 2 months traveling around the world. She is training to be a chef in Brisbane and is nearly finished and of course while she was here she treated us to an amazing Mexican dinner feast.

Before she had arrived she had already put an order in for some cupcakes, however I wanted to make a proper dessert for our lovely dinner and so I couldn't not make one of my sisters favourite desserts.. Cheesecake!!

I'm not a lover of cheesecake and so she was even surprised when I told her I even had to buy the tin for the occasion. If presented with it, I will eat cheesecake, but for me that's in in and on it is better and as a huge lover of chocolate and lime I thought this would be a perfect. 

I used the recipe from the new Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook, Cake Days and therefore have not written up the recipe... not that I ever do and for those who have asked.... sorry.

Is a shame I don't actually like cheesecake more as this was very easy to make and a great end to many dinners with the endless variety of flavour combinations.

A very chocolaty base
flat packed and ready to be chilled
the mixture was so limey.. you can even see the zest here

I hope my sister comes back soon... maybe if I promise endless cheesecake...

Happy Baking x
