This recipe is super easy and really, really quick to make. The only long part is the waiting for it to set! If you're expecting super hot weather, add a couple more teaspoons of gelatine ... or consider popping this in the freezer for a few hours before you serve to make it a Semi Freddo instead of cheesecake!

  • I can’t believe I finally found this recipe again. I want to make this again this year because it’s the best and tastiest one I’ve ever made.


  • This recipe looks very different nice and festive I’ll put it on next years Christmas bake list I’m interested to see how the flavour combo tastes


  • Yum my mum loves ginger

  • I quite like a good cheese cake, but ginger cheese cake doesn’t appeal to me.


  • So beautiful. Perfect treat for Christmas.


  • Yummm I love gingerbread and cake!! Two in one!


  • These are so cute and would taste amazing. I love caramel top and fill. Mmmmm


  • I made two of these last year. The first one was a bit strong (my son told me 2 – 4 tablespoons of cinnamon) but it was very spicy. I looked at the recipe myself and saw the mistake and with the next one I wore my glasses (yes I need them) and made it with the right measurements and everyone loved it. I’m definitely making it again this year.


  • Keep these festive recipes coming. Can’t wait to try this.


  • cute idea but I’m not a fan of Top’n’fill caramel…….might have to try with my own caramel sauce
