No-Bake Strawberry Cheesecake


Moving the blog to my own domain has been on my mind for long time. Finally, after lot of contemplation, I moved from blogspot to its own domain. Yes, Spill the Spices is now www.spillthespices.comOn this occasion, I want to thank my hubby for all the love, support and props!!! Also my friends and readers, for their constant encouragement and great feedback. 

No milestone in my blog is complete without something sweet. Cheesecakes have been on my to-do list for long time. And I think this is the perfect time to post a cheesecake to celebrate the occasion. This is no-bake cheesecake using agar-agar powder. You can make this cheesecake in a springform pan, but I prefer to serve them in small glasses. This is an easy dessert you can make ahead for get-together's and parties.

STRAWBERRY CHEESECAKE RECIPE

{ No-bake and eggless strawberry cheesecake using agar-agar  }
Recipe Source ~ Cooking Channel
Serves 4


Ingredients:

For the biscuit base:
10 digestive biscuits
1 ½ tbsp cocoa powder
1 ½ tbsp brown sugar
50 grams butter

For the cheesecake layer:
250 grams cream cheese, softened
½ cup sugar
½ cup thickened cream
200 grams strawberries
¼ water
3 tbsp sugar
3 ½ tsp agar-agar powder

For the strawberry layer:
125 grams strawberries
2 tbsp water
1 ½ tbsp sugar
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp agar-agar powder

Method:

To make the biscuit base:

1. Grind the biscuits with cocoa powder and brown sugar to a semi-fine powder. Melt the butter and add to the biscuit mixture. Mix well until the mixture becomes moist.

2. Spoon the mixture into the glass and press it firmly and evenly using the back of the spoon. Refrigerate till we prepare the next layer.

To make the cheesecake layer:

1. Beat the cream cheese and sugar on low-medium speed until smooth. Set aside.

2. In a bowl take the cream and whip it until medium peaks. Set aside.

3. In a saucepan add strawberries, water and sugar. Cook on medium heat until the strawberries are soft. Transfer to a blender and puree it.

4. Return the puree to the saucepan and sprinkle the agar-agar powder. Cook on low heat and keep stirring until the powder is completely dissolved.

5. Add this puree to the cream cheese mixture and beat on low speed until well incorporated. Add the whipped cream and fold gently.

6. Pour this mixture immediately into the glasses and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes or until set.

To make the strawberry layer:

1. In a saucepan add strawberries, water, sugar and vanilla extract. Cook on medium heat until the strawberries are soft. Transfer to a blender and puree it.

2. Return the puree to the saucepan and sprinkle the agar-agar powder. Cook on low heat and keep stirring until the powder is completely dissolved.

3. Spoon this mixture immediately on top of the cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for about 3-4 hours or overnight.

Notes and Tips
  • If you are using agar-agar flakes, try with 3 - 3 ½ tbsp for cheesecake layer and 1 - 1 ½ tbsp for strawberry layer. Boil for a little longer time.
  • After adding agar-agar, do not set aside. Immediately pour to the glasses and refrigerate to set.
