eggless cheesecake recipe

i had got a few recipe requests for sharing an eggless cheesecake. this recipe is a baked version and does need an oven. i prepare cheesecakes once in a while. only in the mango season, i prepare mango cheesecake a couple of times.

this cheesecake was loved by the guests we had on this day. the recipe gives you a medium sized cheesecake which is good for a small party in your home. you can even half the recipe if you want.

i have made a chocolate sauce for the cheesecake. you can skip this if you want. but a sweet chocolate sauce complements the slightly sour taste of the cheesecake very well. you will need cream cheese to make this cheesecake. also you will need a spring pan or a pan with a detachable base, so that you can easily remove the cheesecake without breaking it.

RECIPE TIPS

tips for making cheese cake recipe

  • keep all the ingredients at room temperature, including cream cheese, vanilla extract or powder and cream. 
  • do not over beat the cream cheese. doing so may result in cracked tops once the cheese cake gets baked.
  • do keep a check while baking as oven temperatures vary. so it can take less or more time than what is mentioned in the recipe. do not over bake. if you see cracks on top, then remove it from the oven.

    • in india i get cream in tetra packs which i then whip in a stand mixer or with an electric whipper.

    • desiree, the size of tin is 5.5 inch (diameter) and 2.75 inch (height). i made the cheese cake in two such pans.

  1. Hi, can I use a normal cake pan which is 8 by 6 instead of a springform pan ? I need to change the baking time right ?

    • you can use 8 by 6 inches pan. baking time will increase. keep an average baking time of 40 minutes. if the cheese cake does not look done, then bake for some more minutes.

  2. Can we use whipped cream ? Also what can we use instead of cream cheese ? Will the substitute affect the recipe in any way ?

    • Chavi, yes you can sue whipped cream. instead of cream cheese you can use hung curd or greek yogurt. some mashed paneer can also be added to the hung curd. the taste will change as the slight sourness of curd will be felt. the sweet taste can be comparable to that of shrikhand.

  3. Dear Dassana
    All your recipes always turn out so good and this one was no exception ! It was so easy to make and turned out delicious exactly like a New York baked cheesecake . I covered the top with some blueberry pie filling and it turned out perfect ! I will email
    You a picture … thank you so much for sharing your recipes !

  4. Dear Dassana
    Thanks for this lovely recipe. It has turned out exactly like the New York Cheese cake.

    • thats great to know manisha. thanks so much for letting me know. i have never had new york cheese cake. so after reading your comment it makes me feel good. thanks again.

  5. Hi, I have been looking for a baked cheesecake recipe since long and so glad to have finally found it. Have couple of queries, if you could answer:
    1. How do I adapt this recipe for making a baked mango cheesecake?
    2. Cream mentioned in the reipe is Fresh cream (Malai) or cream from tetra pack?
    3. Instead of creamcheese, can I use a blended mixture of Chenna (crumpled paneer) and Malai (Fresh cream)?

    • thanks khushboo. your queries answered below:

      1. use 2 cups cream cheese and 1 cup of mango puree. sugar you can reduce to 1/3rd or 1/2 cup.
      2. its cream from the tetra pack.
      3. you can definitely use chenna and malai. the method would be whip or blend the chenna till it becomes smooth. mango the mango puree with the sugar. add this mango puree to the chenna. mix well or use the beater to mix well. whip cream separately and then add and again mix. or you can add cream directly and then beat again till everything is mixed.

  6. Hi dear.. Thank you so much for the recipe 🙂 Can we use vanilla essence instead of vanilla extract or powder?

  7. Thank you so much for best cake recipes in the world! seriously we love all of your cakes. one question here – can i use fat sour cream instead of cream? coz i saw some recipes include sour cream? and if yes – what proportion should be ok
    thank you!

    • thanks ksenia. even i have seen some recipes using sour cream. you can use the same proportion of sour cream as mentioned in the recipe which is ½ cup.

    • there are a few brands available like arla, brittania. if you live in a metro city, you can get even imported cream cheese like philadelphia in super markets. or you can buy online.

  8. May I know The brand name of cream cheese u used? Or which is gud brand for cream cheese? I stay in US

  9. Recipe sounds great.Eager to try it.But I will use 1 pack of Philadelphia cream cheese which is 226 grams.Can you give me the equivalent amount of biscuits,melted butter,sugar,corn starch,vanilla essence, cream and lemon juice required for the same. Thanks

    • khaitan, for this much quantity of cream cheese, you can add 1/3rd cup sugar, 1 teaspoon corn starch, 1 teaspoon lemon juice, 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons cream. biscuits-crackers and butter you can add more or less as per your choice.

  10. Couldn’t understand how will the base of your cake which made out of crushed biscuits bound by molten butter and then freezed will stay intact after baking the entire stuff for 30 to 40 minutes at 180 C.
    Doesn’t seem likely.

    • it does. you can see in the pics. i have lifted the whole cheesecake in my hand with the base intact. when the base layer is kept in the fridge, the butter condensed and sets the layer. on baking, the layer is also baked. so it does not crumble. in fact i have layered only the base. some cheesecakes, have the biscuit layer on the sides too.
