Eggless Cheesecake-No Bake Recipe

An eggless cheesecake that requires no baking! The taste is light,refreshing and is as easy as beating the ingredients, adding it on top of the crust and refrigerating overnight.  This recipe removes all the issues with a baked cheesecake,most dreaded being the cracked top.

I made this for a gathering at my house. Many of my friends don’t eat eggs and they just loved loved the cheesecake and couldn’t believe first of all that it was home made and secondly that it was made without eggs. I have not taken any pictures of the slices,as we were celebrating 2 birthdays,and didn’t want to cut the cake before the celebrations. But just trust me on this, it makes perfect, clean slices. Just use a sharp knife and clean the knife between slices. I also did make the cake 2 days before and refrigerating it for 12- 24 hours in my opinion is key to a firm cheesecake that gives clean slices.

At no point should you freeze the cheesecake to hasten the cooling process. The taste and texture reminded me of cheesecake mousse-soft,creamy and refreshing.

Notes

An alternate to graham crackers is Digestive or Parle G biscuits.Take your time to make sure the graham cracker crust is well pressed into the bottom of the pan. Since we are not baking the crust, its important to compact is tightly. The whipping cream for the filling needs to be cold to get the stiff peaks. The cream cheese and sour cream need to be at room temperature so we can blend everything easily and get a good consistency. Whipping cream can be tricky when trying to get stiff peaks. if you over beat, it can turn to butter, so be cautious while beating the heavy whipping cream.Best practice is to beat on medium speed. Fold the heavy whipping cream and cream cheese mixture. Over mixing can deflate the air in the whipping cream, which is what gives us the soft mousse like texture. While running the knife around the edges to remove the cheesecake from the pan, do it carefully. Refrigerating for minimum 12 hours is recommended. Best results are if you refrigerate overnight. I made my cake 2 days before and I got smooth,clean and perfect slices.
