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

  1. Delicious! Zesty! Tangy Keto Cheesecake!

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