I love cheesecakes. In the last few years of my baking professionally journey I have come to realise that I am getting over my sugar cravings. I guess the smell of baking & sugar while divine is also enough to put me off my dessert cravings. I am not saying I don’t crave them at all but it’s not like before. I do not anymore need a slice of cake or something sweet after every meal, nor do I get weak in the knees when I see something sweet in front of him. However all this comes to a complete halt and 180 degree turn for three things : Bengali sweets, Besan sweets (think besan ladoo and the ghee laden mysore pak) and well cheesecake. I cannot just cannot resist a good cheesecake.
But then the issue is “good”. Everywhere you go, all you find is those gelatin filled and chemical soya whipping cream rich cheesecake where cheese has probably been added as an afterthought. And they are so easy to put together at home that it really is a crime to buy those chemical filled ones from the market and guess what this no bake one doesn’t even need an oven. So what are you waiting for make this while the lovely strawberries are in the season, oh well I guess you could even make it for Valentines day on Sunday 🙂
