The ultimate cheesecake for anyone who loves lemons! My triple lemon cheesecake with torched meringue topping is a lemon dream come true! A truly decadent dessert, this cheesecake is so light and fluffy, it feels and tastes like a lemon cloud!
I make this cheesecake with a lemon shortbread crust, which is the first part of the ‘triple’ lemon cheesecake! Next, comes the fluffy lemon cheesecake, flavored with tons of fresh lemon zest. Lemon zest is actually one of my favorite ingredients to add to both sweet and savory dishes. The aroma of the zest is out of this world, transforming any dish! And for the final third part, I load this cheesecake up with home-made lemon curd. If you’ve never had home-made lemon curd, you absolutely have to try it! It’s super creamy, lemony and simply a must for any lemon dessert. This recipe yields some extra lemon curd that you can serve on the side with the cheesecake.
This cheesecake goes from a regular cheesecake to over-the-top with the torched meringue topping. This topping is super light and fluffy and doesn’t add any weight at all to the cake. It’s like a little cloud sitting on top, garnishing the cake! I bake the meringue first, then torch it to add more color and a caramelized flavor.
