Delicious Easter Egg fairy cakes, makes 4 portions for everyone to enjoy!


 Individual Baked Easter Cheesecakes a lovely and light recipe,


  • 110g Caster Sugar
  • 250g Cream Cheese
  • ½ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2  Eggs
  • 12 Digestive biscuits (you can use ginger nuts as an alternative flavour, but you may need more if they are smaller than digestives)
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 Bag Mini Eggs
  • A 6 space muffin tray - I find the silicone, ones are the best, or lose bottom as these are easier to get the finished cheesecakes out.
