Been wanting to try this no-bake ready-made mix cheesecake but decided to try making using raw ingredients. Since I have just purchased an affordable Kenwood Stand Mixer for a try, I decided to google for recipes online. Then I came upon Bakers Royale recipe for Oreo Cookies and Cream No-Bake Cheesecake and decided to give this recipe a try! (@´ー`)ノ゙

Things to Note

While typing out the recipe with reference to Bakers Royale’s recipe, I realised that the printer version put 2 tablespoon of lemon juice while that on her website puts 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. I used the printer version and I think that’s why the cake turned out a bit too tangy. So do note it will be better to use 1 tablespoon unless you prefer something more tangy for your cake.

When beating the cream cheese mixture, Bakers Royale’s recommendation was to use a paddle attachment but I used a stand mixer without the attachment and it works as well.

When filling the pan with the cheesecake mixture, Bakers Royale’s recommendation was to have a slight mound at the center as cheesecake tends to become slightly sunken at the center.

Overall Experience

Probably it is a no-bake recipe or we didn’t beat the heavy cream enough, the cheesecake was really soft even when it was in the fridge for a few hours. So we decided to put the cheesecake in the freezer and in the end, it turned out like ice cream instead. Haha!

Besides the problem with the cheesecake being too soft, the cheesecake was a bit too tangy for us. It was acceptable when eaten together with the crust though. But my brother said it was yummy. So just wondering if is it up to a personal preference. (´・ᴗ・ ` ) Was a good experience to use raw ingredients though this is not baking so it was a tad bit easier. Hehe. Going to try a new recipe for Christmas soon!
