8 recipes for making cheesecake at home


Friday January 5, 2018

If for some reason you cannot make a classic cheesecake, try to make it without baking - with gelatin. A delicate delicacy with a silky and smooth texture, a pleasant creamy taste, a light aroma of vanilla and lemon will be appreciated by all the guests at the table. Serve such a cheesecake with fresh (frozen) berries, slices of fruit, berry sauces or just like that with a cup of coffee or tea.

A few words about the main products that make up the cheesecake. For the base you will need only two ingredients: any shortbread cookie (as an option, sweet cracker) and butter. For margarine and spread forget it! The base of the filling for any cheesecake is cream cheese. In the original, this is Philadelphia, but recently it simply disappeared from the shelves of Belarusian stores. That is why I use a product called Cream Cheese of local production - it is in no way inferior to foreign counterparts, and the price is quite reasonable.

As if the cheesecake will be without baking, you need to stabilize the cheese mass with something - in this recipe we will do this with gelatin. It should be noted that the exact amount of this gelatin itself can only be selected empirically and may differ from the indicated one - this factor depends on the brand and characteristics of the product. I really hope that my humble advice, as well as the cheesecake recipe itself without baking, will come in handy and you will definitely prepare this wonderful dessert.

Cooking in steps:

To make a cheesecake without baking, we need the following ingredients: cream cheese, cream (I used only 10% fat), powdered sugar and vanilla sugar, shortbread cookies, butter, lemon zest and gelatin. Please note (okay, I still remind you later) that cream cheese must be at room temperature, so take it out of the refrigerator in advance and leave it on the kitchen table.

First of all, we’ll take care of the basis for the future cheesecake: we turn 100 grams of any shortbread cookie into a large crumb in a way convenient for you. Most often I use a blender for this purpose, but then I just wanted to chop a cookie with a knife. If you wish, you can diversify the taste and texture of the future base - chocolate or nut cookies are suitable, and you can also replace part of the cookies with fried chopped nuts.

We shift the crushed (you see, not into dust, but decent pieces) cookies.

Melt 50 grams of butter in advance (you can on the stove, but I prefer it in the microwave) and let it cool to room temperature.

Combine the sand pieces with melted butter and quickly, but thoroughly mix with a fork or spoon.

The result is such butter crumbs from cookies.

Any round shape with a diameter of 16-20 centimeters is suitable for forming a cheesecake. In my case, this is a sliding confectionery ring, which I made with a diameter of 18 centimeters and put it directly on a flat dish. Sprinkle the crumbs directly into the mold - this amount of cookies with butter is designed only to cover the bottom. If you want to make sides, double the products for the sand base twice.

Carefully level the sand crumbs with your fingers. Alternatively, after this, you can additionally compact and align the base with the bottom of a regular glass, but with your hands it turns out very quickly and simply. By the way, it is not visible in the photo, but in this recipe I used a border tape - it is transparent, therefore it is not visible. We place the workpiece in the refrigerator so that the oil freezes and the cake becomes dense.

In the meantime, let’s get into the cheese filling for the cheesecake. Since the dessert will be without baking, take gelatin - 10 grams. I use instant, that is, one that does not need to be pre-soaked in a liquid. If you have gelatin to be soaked in a cold liquid, pour cold cream in advance and leave it for 30 minutes. When the gelatin swells, warm it until it is completely dissolved, without boiling, and then strain.

We work with instant gelatin: in a separate bowl we heat the cream to 80-85 degrees (if you want, you can take it fatter, but we have enough 10%), pour a tablespoon of vanilla sugar, gelatin and stir until it dissolves. It is clear that not all grains can completely disperse in cream, so then do not forget to strain the mixture through a sieve. Leave the cream to cool to a slightly warm state.

In another bowl we combine 500 grams of cream cheese (do not forget, room temperature!), A teaspoon of lemon peel crushed on a fine grater and 100 grams of powdered sugar. As you can imagine, lemon peel (like vanilla sugar) are flavorings that can be added as desired.

Thoroughly rub all products to a homogeneous tender mass.

Pour a little warm cream with gelatin and mix everything again.

As a result, you should get a completely homogeneous, smooth and very tender cheese mass. By consistency, it resembles sour cream of 20% fat content.

We shift the cheese filling on top of the cookie base.

We level it first with a spatula (tablespoon), and then simply scroll through the dish without tearing it off the work surface - this way the top of the cheese mass will become completely smooth.

So that the cheesecake without baking is not filled with the aromas of the refrigerator, we tighten the top of the form with cling film and put the dessert in the refrigerator for at least 3-4 hours, and even better at night. So much time is needed for the gelatin in the filling to make the whole cheese mass stable.

Whether home-made cheesecake is ready, you can simply determine: touch the surface with your finger - it is slightly springy and does not stick, then it's ready. To carefully remove the dessert from the mold, take a long thin knife, heat it in hot water, quickly dry it with a towel and carry it along the side. Thus, we separate the cheesecake from the walls of the mold. Remove the split ring. As I wrote above, I had a border tape, so I just removed the ring and removed it - the sides turned out to be perfectly even. We decorate the finished dessert, as the fantasy tells, and serve.

I decorated the cheesecake without baking with frozen berries (I’ll tell you something and show how to properly freeze and thaw them to decorate dishes) and slices of fresh mandarin. Cut this dessert, like all cheesecakes, you need a sharp hot knife. After each cut, wash the blade, heat it in boiling water and quickly dry it. This is if you do not care how smooth, smooth and neat the cut will turn out. Polinochka, thank you very much for this tasty order - I hope the recipe comes in handy. Cook for health, bon appetit and merry Christmas, friends!

Classic cheesecake - recipe without baking

A cheesecake without baking is the summer dream of every sweet tooth. It is cold, very tender and relatively light (when compared with a full-fledged cake), so a piece of it will not damage the figure. In addition to its great taste, it also hides a huge plus - ease of preparation. And even if you do not have any experience in making desserts, this recipe for cheesecake without baking will be on your shoulder, and we will tell you about all the little secrets in a step-by-step recipe with a photo. So, let's begin!

Ingredients for making cheesecake without baking:

  • cookies - 180 g
  • butter - 90 g
  • cream cheese - 600 g
  • cream (from 33%) - 200 g
  • icing sugar - 200 g (to taste)
  • vanilla sugar - 1 tsp
  • gelatin (instant powder) - 20 g
  • milk - 100 ml

Note:we take the mold for the preparation of cheesecake with a diameter of 21-22 cm, the height of the cheesecake is about 5-6 cm.

Classic cheesecake recipe without baking:

First, let's deal with the main ingredients. Traditionally, cheesecake consists of a sand substrate and a cheese layer. If you follow the classic recipe, then cream cheese is necessarily taken for the cheese layer, it is thanks to its creamy texture that the cheesecake is so tender. But, if for some reason you were unable to get the cream cheese, then you can easily cook it yourself or replace it with tender cottage cheese (grainy and dry will definitely not work). As for the sand substrate, then it will require ready-made cookies. The only condition for choosing cookies is that it should crumble easily. That's all the subtleties in choosing ingredients.

To prepare a classic cheesecake without baking, first soak the gelatin. To do this, pour it into a deep bowl and fill it with cold milk. Mix and leave to swell for 15 minutes.

Prepare the sand layer. Grind the finished cookies in any possible way into small crumbs. The easiest way to do this is with a combine, but for lack of it, you can use a meat grinder or the good old way - a bag and a rolling pin.

Melt the butter and pour into the crumbs.

Mix. The baby should completely absorb the oil and become like wet sand.

We pour the crumbs out of the cookies into the mold, its bottom can be pre-lined with paper. We compact well the baby. For convenience, we take an ordinary glass and walk it over the entire surface, so the crumb will turn into an even dense layer - the base of the cheesecake. We send the form to the refrigerator.

Cook the cheese layer. Fat cream pour into a deep bowl. Pour powdered sugar and vanilla sugar into it. When whipping cream, you should remember that only cold cream is whipped well, so before you whip the cream, you must always keep it in the refrigerator, and you can also cool the bowl for whipping and the whisk of the mixer.

Whip the cream until a thick cream is obtained. In this case, it is also important not to overdo it, otherwise the cream can be “killed” and they will turn into sweet butter.

Transfer the cream cheese to another bowl and slightly knead with a spatula or beat with a mixer for 1 minute.

We mix both mixtures.

Gently mix, the mass should be very light. Put it aside.

The swollen gelatin is heated on a stove or in the microwave. We warm it gently, stirring more often and in no case bring it to a boil! Gelatin should completely dissolve. Let the resulting solution cool slightly.

Pour the gelatin solution into the creamy cheese mass, and be sure to filter it through a fine sieve.

We take out the form from the refrigerator and fill it with a creamy cheese mass. By the way, the sides of the form for convenience can be lined with strips of paper or a special confectionery film, then it will be easier to freeze the cheesecake from the sides of the form. Send the cheesecake to the refrigerator for 3-4 hours.

Although it is quite feasible to make cottage cheese cake from cream cheese and sour-milk cottage cheese (both products are called “cheese” in English), it’s better to take mascarpone, and if you use cottage cheese, it’s soft and fat without grains and grains.

Cooking in steps:

  1. Grind cookies to small grains, to which add melted butter. You can quickly carry out such manipulations using a blender or walking along the liver with a rolling pin. In the first case, it is more effective. Seal oiled crumbs in split form.
  2. Cream the cheese, sweet powder and cream into the most homogeneous mixture.
  3. Pour water into a small container with gelatin. Heat the milk to a hot state, not allowing it to boil. Pour it into swollen gelatin. Stir until all grains are completely dissolved.
  4. Dissolve the dissolved gelatin in the whipped cream cheese and beat well again so that the gelling component does not settle at the bottom.
  5. Put the souffle in shape and let it freeze in the cold. Ready cheesecake can be coated on top with a layer of jelly from berry or fruit juice, as well as chocolate icing, garnish with berries, chocolate or coconut.

  4. Put the finished biscuit cake on the bottom of the detachable shape, cutting it with a knife, if it is slightly larger. Along the perimeter, coat the cake with a part of the laid-off cream and install halves of berries on it, with slices to the walls of the mold. Fill the form with the bulk of the curd souffle with strawberries.
  5. Spread the remaining cream without berries from the bowl on top. So the surface of the dessert will be perfectly smooth. After stabilization, carefully remove the dessert from the mold, showing a beautiful sidewall.

Then, with a toothpick, draw the same spiral, passing through the center of each droplet. Put the cheesecake overnight in the refrigerator to freeze the souffle.

Whipped Raspberry Dessert

This raspberry cheesecake, although it consists of three layers (cake cake, soufflé cottage cheese and raspberry jelly), is cooked quite quickly due to the fact that the layers are sent for stabilization and solidification to the freezer. Another feature of the recipe is that a cheesecake with cookies is usually prepared from shortbread, and here an oat treat is used.
