I just tried this recipe myself last weekend. Tastes great. Easy to make and no need oven.
1) Cream Cheese 500g (I bought those in tube form, new zealand cream cheese, can buy from any baking ingredients shop. Price about $9.50) - there is a baking corner in NTUC fairprice at toa payoh, not the toa payoh hub one, is the other outlet opposite the Toa Payoh Swimming Complex.
2) Lemon juice 1 tablespoon ( I squeezed from fresh lemon)
3) Little dash of vanilla essence
4) Non Diary Whipping Cream - Redman brand $7.50 (also bought from the baking corner at TPY ntuc)
5) Castor Sugar (Taiho Brand, $2.50 per pkt, around that price)
6) McVites Digestive Biscuits, 200g, crushed. ($3-$4 but comes in 400g, you can use it for 2 times)
7) Butter 200g, melted (I bought lurpak unsalted butter, was leftover in fridge from last time)
8) Hand whisk and a big rounded mixing bowl
9) Round baking tin, about 8inche to 10inche diameter
10) Mango pudding ready mixed powder.
A) Crust or base of the cheesecake : Mix the crushed mcvites digestive biscuits with 200g melted butter inside the mixing bowl. Once its mixed evenly (butter and biscuits should be like mashed texture), empty the contents into the baking tin, press the mixture firmly on the base of the baking tin. Set aside in fridge for it to harden for at least 30mins before pouring the combined cream cheese mixture + whipped cream mixture in D) below.
B) Whipped Cream Mixture : Wash the mixing bowl used earlier for A). In the mixing bowl, whip the non-diary whipping cream till soft peaks (Like those cakes with fresh cream topping, that kindo texture) Be careful not to over whipped it. Takes some skills to do it. I failed once when i was following a recipe for ice-cream. It turned out over beaten and there is water and a cream layer ontop. Set aside the whipped cream mixture in a normal bowl.
C) Cream Cheese Mixture : Wash the mixing bowl used earlier for B). In the mixing bowl, pour in cream cheese, castor sugar, lemon juice and vanilla essence. Mix them until smooth. Will be best if you have a hand held mixer but i managed fine with manual mixing. Takes about 20 minutes to mix it well. Need strength, can exercise biceps. How well you mixed this will determine how fine your cream cheese cake turns out to be. If theres uneven mixing, will turn out crumbly when you eat it.
D) Combine ALL : Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture in the mixing bowl. Mix them thoroughly to achieve a smooth and even texture / colour. Fold in the whipped cream batch by batch till the mixture is of an even colour, meaning yellow (cream cheese mixture) + white (whipped cream) = light yellow
E) Pour the ready mixture from D) into the baking tin with the hardened crust that you had set aside in fridge for at least 30mins.
F) Let the cheese cake in fridge set for at least 2 hours before you pour the mango pudding mixture on top of the cheesecake in G) below.
G) In a pan, heat up water, pour in mango pudding ready mixed powder, dont need a lot, just so that it forms a layer of jelly on the cheese cake.
H) Chill overnight in fridge. Next day its ready to eat.

wow... must try it myself... i love cheese cake... thank you
humble pic of my cheesecake already digested by me baber and hubby ~~~
wow... it look yummy
When gonna do for me baObei... Heh.
If dont put the mango pudding on top also can right??
Looks good, too bad I only like to cook but bakery no no no.... i only like to buy & eat hehe . I posted a Tiramisu recipe did you try it?
Oh actually can use Custard Powder to substitute (just read it after i do, so wasted, tats me laaa, read recipe book only pick out key words lols)
did not expect to be successful worhh....at least taste 90% like outside sell deee....
For your info horr, i opted out the baking tin also....save $$$ coz a baking tin costs $9.50 lols~~~ all those ingredients i listed below costs me close to $18 liaooo if i buy baking tin and mango puree will rise to $30 liaooo....
but you can eat it for brekky, lunch and dinner laahhh whole family of 3 lols~~~
so i used a round glass plate, and line the sides with aluminium foil.....cheap skate mee...
Actually you can buy those disposable type of aluminium baking tray. That's what i always use
Instead of gelatine you can use koniyaku jelly or agar gar powder
Yup, am with stonston - if you want to transport it around, better to put agar agar or gelatine.
I usually make this with fruit puree like passion fruit or orange and then add a bit of alcohol in it. Sinful, I tell you... :P
I come your house darling you make for me hahahaha .......
wahahahah~~~so many cheesecakes fanatics lols~~~
ermmm....tell you all horr
i left 2 pcs in fridge dinkking i wanna eat later or "deposit" (like those old pple dinkking) save for later
but horr it turned sourr....
think can only keep 2 days MAX in fridge coz no preservatives lols~~~
So fast?!? I've kept for three-four days before and still okay woh. :S
yeah coz i "baked" on saturday night, ate on sunday morning, ate on Monday night, still okie, tastes fresh and nice.
Then on Thursday wanted to eat, sour liaoo...so i guess eat fresh is beta then keep later lols~~~ which is why i suggest 2 days wahahahahh~~~~
Wah CanCanMum!!! I love cheesecake! I must try this one day!
which cream cheese you use? if you use phili cream cheese, can keep for a week in fridge
if you use those bottled cream cheese, only can keep for 2 days in fridge.
*nods* I usually use Phil cream cheese in all my cheese cakes - no bake or baked.
Hmm~~ too bad I not a cheesecake lover but my boy do by the way my boy also like anything that comes with durian. My all favourite is still chocolate (all kinds & types) most prefer Tiramisu & very particular about it too. when i visit any hotel/restaurant I will sure try out the tiramisu.
