I love cheesecake, it has to be one of my favourite desserts. There are many recipes and I particularly like chocolate cheesecake, but another favourite is citrus cheesecake and in this case Key Lime.
I have made Key Lime Pie before which was really nice but although I’ve made a lemon cheesecake I’ve not made a lime one before. I do think a citrus tang goes so well with a rich creamy cheese though.
This is a classic no bake cheesecake recipe with a twist. I am adding the Key Lime by using Sugar and Crumbs Key Lime flavoured icing sugar. I’ve recently discovered Sugar and Crumbs products when we made our mini Strawberry Milkshake cheesecakes for Kids in the Kitchen. I used the remainder of the pack to make some butter cream for some cupcakes at the weekend and they were really scrummy. It’s not that hard to flavour your butter cream but Sugar and Crumbs offer such a varied range of delicious flavoured icing sugars you can really come up with something totally yummy really easy. The packs are, as you would expect, slightly more expensive than regular icing sugar, but they do have lots of added flavour and they come in handy resealable bags.
