Frü Sicilian Lemon Cheesecake
Advantages: tastes delicious
I wasn't fond of cheesecakes until I tried Frü lemon cheesecake. I don't know too much about the brand but I know that it is of premium quality, delicious and not very cheap. Actually we received this cheesecake as a present. We had a beef stew party and the stew I cooked was so delicious that nobody could eat any desert so the lemon cheesecake survived the party and we had it for dinner.
The cheesecakes come in a yellowish cardboard box. Inside the box there are two transparent glass pots. They are covered with silver foil and it is easy to open it. The cheesecake in the pot is fresh and delicious. Despite being a lemon cheesecake it is not completely sour. The cheesecake has a delicious buttery biscuit crumbs base. The second layer is tart lemon curd ant it is topped with the creamy cheesecake with real lemon zest. The tastes of the layers fit each other very well and the whole cheesecake is extremely delicious and you feel that you could eat some more. The pot contains only 90 g cheesecake. The two pots cost 3 pounds in Sainsbury's so it is quite expensive.
The ingredients are: Lemon Cheesecake (61%): Cream Cheese (24%), Whipping Cream, Sugar, Pasteurised Whole Egg, Lemon Juice (3%), Cornflour, Water, Lemon Zest (0.4%), Preservatives (Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate), Biscuit Base (22%): Biscuit Crumb (Wheat Flour, Vegetable Oil, Sugar, Wholemeal Flour, Raising Agents (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Tartaric Acid, Disodium Diphosphate, Malic Acid), Invert Sugar Syrup, Salt, Dried Whey Powder, Dried Malt Extract), Sugar, Vegetable Oil, Butter (0.5%), Lemon Curd (17%): Sugar, Pasteurised Whole Egg, Butter, Vegetable Oil, Lemon Juice (2%), Pasteurised Egg Yolk, Modified Maize Starch, Water, Preservatives (Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate).
One pot of this lovely cheesecake contains 318 kcal energy. It is less then a chocolate bar anyway. What I liked in this cheesecake apart from the delicious cheesecake is the glass pot. You can simply recycle it if you want to but you can use it to prepare jelly or pudding in them. We have now 4 of them so I think I will keep them and use them to make delicious deserts for the family. They are very handy.
This cheesecake definitely tastes better than the shop's own brand cheesecake but I think it is too expensive. It is worth preparing it at home. Cheesecakes are not very challenging so despite its wonderful lemon taste I will not stick to it.
Summary: Prepare your own
