No-bake Orange Cheesecake- recipe

Ingredients

  • 15 digestive biscuits
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • 400 g curd or cream cheese
  • grated zest 3 oranges, save the segments for the decoration
  • 200 g mascarpone cheese
  • 100 g caster sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk
  • 184 ml pot double cream

Method

  1. Crush the biscuits roughly. You can either do this by putting them in a plastic food bag and crushing them with a wooden spoon or you can crumble them with your fingers.
  2. Put the biscuits into a bowl and mix in the melted butter. Put the mixture into a 23 cm cheesecake tin and, using your fingers or the back of a spoon to spread it evenly, press it down in the tin to form the base. Put the tin into the fridge to set. This should take about 30 mins.
  3. Put the curd or cream cheese, orange zest, mascarpone,sugar and milk into a bowl and mix it well with the wooden spoon.
  4. Put the cream in a clean bowl and whisk until it is the consistency of thick custard. Add to the orange mixture and mix thoroughly.
  5. Remove the cheesecake tin from the fridge. Pour the filling over the biscuit base and spread evenly. Decorate with segments of orange and return to the fridge until ready to serve (at least 4 hours or overnight).

    hey Nupur,
    I really love this initiative of yours. Just one question, since I have a very tiny fridge I was wondering is it necessary to freeze this or can I just leave it in the general fridge area. Thanks in advance.

    Hi kshitja, first of all thanks for reading the blog and acknowledgment.
    Secondly, yes you can leave it in the fridge area, all you would need is some extra time probably overnight since cheesecakes take a lil more time to set
