Gateau au Citron & Choco Crumble




Choco Crumble


1&1/2 cups Almond meal

1/2 cup Niulife Coconut flour

1/2 cup Heart of Chocolate Devine Cocoa powder

1/3 cup Naturally Sweet Eryrithtol

100g Melted butter


Cheese cake


500g Cream cheese

2 lemons, zested and juiced

1/3 cup Naturally Sweet Eryrithtol (double if you like your desserts sweeter)

20g Nutra Organic Gelatin (can be substituted with vegan/vegetarian jelly making powder)

400mls of water (200mls hot and 200mls cold)


Lemon jelly on top of cheese cake


125g Hawthorne Hill Lemon Spread

10g Nutra Organic Gelatin (again can be substituted for vegan/vegetarian jelly making powder)

200mls of water (100mls hot and 100mls cold)




Choco Crumble


1. Preheat oven at 165°C (fan forced, 180°C for conventional ovens)

2. Line baking paper on a baking tray

3. Mix all dried ingredients thoroughly  (sift cocao power to avoid lumps)

4. Mix in melted butter to dry ingredients  (use hands to mix until all combined well)

5. Spread out mixture onto baking tray and press down to about 1/2cm thick. Use a fork to prick holes all over evenly

6. Bake for 15 mins

7. Take out and let crumble to completely cool (as it will be very soft when warm). Set aside


Cheese cake


1. Line a retangle tray (I used a 25cmX16cmX4cm tray) with cling film. Make sure the lining is up and over the sides (makes it easier to lift cheesecake out for cutting)

2. Dissolve gelatin in hot water and then mix in cold water

3. Add in cream cheese, lemon juice, eryrithtol

4. Mix with hand stick mixer until all combined

5. Stir in lemon zest

6. Pour mixture into tray (make sure you have at least 1/2cm for lemon jelly mixture to pour on top later)

7. Refrigerate for approx 2 hours (until set)


Lemon jelly for top of cheese cake


1. Dissolve gelatin in hot water and then mix in cold water

2. Mix in Hawthorne Hill Lemon Spread

3. Pour mixture on top of semi set cheese cake (I made this and poured on top 1 hour into the Cheese cake chilling time). Leave to set for remaining hour




1. By hand, you can break/crumble the Choco crumble onto a plate to your liking

2. Carefully lift out the Cheese cake from the tray by the cling film onto a cutting board/table

3. Cut out desired amount of Cheese cake and plate on top of choco crumble

4. Garnish with some lemon peel/mint or whatever you like

5. Enjoy!
