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! 🙂

Ingredients for the cheesecake crust.

Intruder alert! SABER! Ah!!!

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 yum. So just wondering is it up to a personal preference. 🙂

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! 🙂

Here is the recipe taken from Bakers Royale website with some slight modification. 🙂

Notes
  1. 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 printed it out using 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
