Mild No-bake Cheesecake

Mild No-bake Cheesecake

This cake is fluffy and mild in flavor, but still tastes like a proper cheesecake. I thought up this recipe so small children can enjoy it too.

Ingredients: 18 cm springform pan, 16.6 cm in diameter inside

For the cookie crust
Plain biscuits (cookies)
100 g
50 g
Oreo cookies
40 g
For the cream cheese batter
Cream cheese
100 g
Plain yogurt
50 g
Heavy cream
150 g
Granulated sugar
60 to 65 g
Egg whites
2 medium
Lemon juice
15 ml
5 g
30 ml


1. Make the cookie crust. Put the plain biscuits (cookies) in a bag and crush. Add butter that's been melted in the microwave, and mix well.
2. Press the cookie crust mix on the bottom of a cake tin using a spoon.
3. Put the Oreo cookies in a bag too and crush. Press on top of the cookie crust from Step 2. If you omit the cream filling, mix in a little melted butter to the crumbs.
4. Put the egg whites and 1/3 of the granulated sugar in a bowl, and beat to make a meringue. Then chill in the refrigerator until later use. Dissolve the gelatin in water in a bowl held over a pan of hot water.
5. Put the cream in a separate bowl, and whip until thickened. If you are not going to whip it, use 200 g.
6. Put the cream cheese and the remaining granulated sugar in a separate bowl. Add the lemon juice and mix until the sugar is dissolved with the bowl held over a pan of hot water. Add the yogurt.
7. Add the dissolved gelatin and the cream to the bowl from Step 6 in that order (if the gelatin is warm, the batter will become soft and easy to mix).
8. Add the meringue from Step 4 in 2 to 3 batches, mixing between additions. You can mix it completely if you like, but I leave it about 2/3 mixed.
9. If the mixture stiffens up right away and is hard to mix, heat briefly over a pan of hot water. Pour the batter into the mold. Agitate the mold from to even out the surface, and chill in the refrigerator.
10. Chill for half a day, and it's done. Pour on some fruity sauce to taste.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to serve my children a no-bake cheesecake so I thought up this recipe for a very mild version.
