How To Make An Elderflower And Lime Cheesecake.

I love all cakes and especially cheesecake. Today I am sharing an elderflower and lime cheesecake recipe with you.

This cheesecake recipe is one of the many things on my list to make over the weekend. yum yum!!

Sometimes I like to make a nice big cheesecake to share with the family and sometimes I like to make them in individual glasses.

Cheesecakes are great for parties or just a nice weekend treat. Sometimes I like to top mine with fresh berries or fruit depending what I have in at the time.
