I unwittingly issued myself a challenge when I volunteered to help a friend raise funds for charity – making a Classic No Bake Cheesecake. I have baked cakes and cookies, even whipped up ice-cream before, but never cheesecake.
Fortunately, my husband and children were game to help me out, and most importantly, be my Guinea pigs! Armed with the easiest recipe I could find online, we went shopping for the ingredients and baking equipment.
As it turns out, this'No Bake Cheesecake' is such an easy dessert to make, with the perfect creamy filling made from just 3 ingredients. You can pair it with any toppings of our choice - chocolate sauce, nuts, fresh fruits, the options are endless. For this occasion, I went with blueberries.
I hope you enjoy this Classic No Bake Cheesecake recipe!
