No-Bake Cheesecake

No-Bake Cheesecake

This is a stylish no-bake cheesecake with a layer of blueberry jelly.

Ingredients: one 15 cm round mould

Cream cheese
200 g
60-70 g
Lemon juice
1 lemon's worth
Lemon zest
1/2 lemon
8 g
3 tablespoons
Heavy cream (low-fat is OK)
200 ml
Blueberry Jelly
Blueberry jam (store-bought)
3-4 heaped teaspoons
Blueberry sauce
1-2 tablespoons
130 ml
as needed
3 g
Whipped cream
as needed
Powdered sugar (the type that won't dissolve easily)
as needed


1. Prepare a no-bake cheesecake and chill. Please refer to "Dense No-Bake Cheesecake", Recipe ID: 1533519 for further instructions.
2. Soak and dissolve the gelatin in an appropriate amount of water.
3. Add the blueberry jam, blueberry sauce, sugar and water to a pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Stop the heat, pour in the gelatin, and mix everything together with a whisk.
4. Once the cheesecake has chilled and set, pour the blueberry sauce over the top of it and leave the cake to chill and set once more.
5. Wrap a warm cloth around the cake tin and carefully remove the cheesecake from within. Pipe some whipped cream around the edges and top with strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar.
6. If you use a store-bought jam on its own, the colour won't be very vivid, so please make sure to use blueberry sauce too. Feel free to use store-bought blueberry sauce if you wish.
7. The sweetness of the jam will vary depending on the brand. Feel free to omit the sugar in Step 3 if you don't want your cake to be overly sweet.
8. You can make this cheesecake without the jam and use strained blueberry sauce instead.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a no-bake cheesecake so I thought of this recipe.
You can make a fairly dense no-bake cheesecake in a 18 cm mould, but you'll get a taller cake like the one in the photo with a 15 cm one.
You can try making this cheesecake with raspberry jelly if you'd prefer.
