Grandmum’s Cheesecake

Grandmum's cheesecake 1

As we were driving home from our Mackay trip, Mum noted a bush lemon tree by the side of the road laden with lemons. I promptly did a u-turn on the road and went back to the tree to pick a fewlemons. There is nothing quite like bush lemons and for the rest of the day I could smell the lemon oil on my fingers, our car too was perfumed with the delicate scent of lemons. It was quite a treat. Later on that day I picked up 5 limes and 5 meyer lemons for $1 at a farm gate stall on the Gympie-Tin Can Bay Rd. We have had quite a few lemon treats since we returned and this is the first one to be posted πŸ™‚

This recipe is one my Grandmother used to make(hence the title) and was made by my mother with the photographs by me of course.
