Mad Creations Lemon Curd Keto Cheesecake

My Mad Creations Layered Lemon Delight Keto Cheesecake, not only looks amazing but is seriously delicious!

Another simple and easy keto cheesecake.  So light and creamy, and zesty!  As I write this recipe I want to make it again because it is so tasty.

A keto diet has truly enriched my life, in more ways than one.  This kind of easy keto cheesecake helps me when I have a hankering for a little bit of something sweet to eat.  I find keeping it in the freezer in individual portions is awesome.  So that when I feel the need to have a little sweet with a cuppa after a meal I just take out a small piece and gnaw on it straight from the freezer (lasts so much longer that way too).

Keto Cheesecake Variations

If you haven’t already noticed I love making a good keto cheesecake.  I have just a few on the website, and one in each of the cookbooks, almost!  They are so easy and you can really keep the carbs low.  Plus a keto cheesecake is a great fat bomb as well. If you haven’t tried the New York Cheesecake you have to give it a whirl as well as the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup style one that I did.  Just type in cheesecake in the search bar and you will find a few on here for sure

        I don’t have a microwave. Can I just mix gelatine with boiled water?

        1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

          You sure can Faroe.

      2. Mel Christensen

        I think a couple of edits are needed in this recipe; in the filling and lemon curd sections, you have asked us to “add all ingredients” and then later tell us to dissolve the gelatin and water and add it later. Therefore we are not “adding all ingredients” in either section but “adding all ingredients except gelatin and water.” Sure it will save frustration and wastage for many of your followers 😉

        Yummy cake though. Making it second time around using my own scribbled edits (including double quantities for all as I couldn’t imagine making a tiny 12cm cheesecake!)

        1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

          I do need to update this one Mel. Thanks for the edit suggestions.

      3. Anne marie Sorensen

        Just checking tin size 12cm is tiny.?? Should it be 21cm?

        1. Megan Mad Creations Hub

          Hi Anne Marie, yes this is for a small cheesecake.

      4. Melanie Christensen

        How can the lemon possibly ‘cook’ the egg when it is in a separate layer??

      5. Darienne

        I’m making this right now and just realized that it doesn’t have a time or temperature to Cook the actual cheesecake at. It has raw egg so I’m assuming there is a time and temp?

        1. Megan

          No it isnt baked. The eggs are “cooked” by the lemon in the recipe the same as any mayonnaise is. etc.
