I baked this cake today and it was just awesome. The texture was very smooth as I baked the cake in water bath. Thanks Diana for sharing such good recipes.

This is the same recipe from Kraftfoods.com I found it on their website about 2yrs ago the only thing different is the topping, theirs used cool whip strawberry flavor non-dairy topping and did not have the lemon slices. I made it for a baby shower it was fabulous!

Dear Diana! If I can't find Lemon Instant Pudding Mix, what can I replace it with? I live in Viet Nam so it's difficult to find. Thanks!

Reviewer: melody
Didn't care for the instant pudding artificial aftertaste. Wasn't exactly cooked through to the center of the cheesecake even after following the directions exactly.
