When I first started my kitchen, there weren’t much cooking utensils and almost none for baking. I thought that to bake, I would need fancy equipments such as a stand mixer (which I wasn’t ready to invest yet). So I made jellies, mousse and Chinese sweet soup instead. I didn’t think that I could bake a cake (easily) without proper tools until I found this no-bake cheesecake recipe.
You only need 30 minutes to prepare the cake. You don’t need a cake mixer or an oven. Best of all, it is absolutely delicious. If you don’t trust me, trust Nigella Lawson (Recipe adapted from Nigella Lawson)
The whole idea of this cake is that no eggs are involved so you don’t have to bake it. All you need to do is 1) Make a base using biscuits and butter 2) Make and top the base with cheese filling and 3) Spread jam over it. That’s it!
- Whisk (I use electric whisk)
- Cake pan (20 cm)
- Pestle/ rolling pin/ or anything heavy eg. bottom of a pan + ziplock bag (to crush biscuit)
- Measuring cups/spoons
- Wax paper
STEP 1: Make biscuit base
STEP 2: Make cheese filling
STEP 3: Spread topping
