My First No Bake Cheesecake

2 weeks ago I made a chilled cheesecake for hubby’s birthday. It was also my first time baking him a birthday cake. Without much thought, Oreo chilled cheesecake came to my mind....I started to search for recipes online and also flipped through my collection of cookbooks. As I was searching online one day, I stumbled upon Doreen’s blog. Her Irresistible Oreo Cheese Cake caught my attention and I decided to use the recipe posted by her.

I bought all the necessary ingredients including a 20cm springform cake pan and started my project on Thursday night after Sharlene has gone to bed at around 9.45pm. The steps are really simple and I only modified slightly by reducing sugar to 70gm and adding 10ml of lemon juice. The whole thing was done in less than an hour. After that, I just left the cake in the fridge to chill overnight. The next day, we were all ready to celebrate hubby’s birthday. Initially, I wanted to give him a surprise but naughty Sharlene spoiled my plan….haha. She opened the fridge, saw the cake and announced to everyone that there is a cake in the fridge! Hubby was standing nearby so he heard what the little girl said.

~ My 1st cheesecake ~


I’m glad that my 1st attempt was a success. The cake turned out really good and tasted very nice. Everyone liked it and gave a thumbs-up for this cheesecake :) However, the appearance wasn’t up to the standard. It would look nicer if I had used an 18cm cake pan. I’m planning to make another type of cheesecake soon and hope it will turn out well.
