Cheesecake recipe with step by step photos – creamy, tasty and soft baked cheesecake.

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.

How to make cheesecake

Preparing the biscuit crust

1. Take 10 to 12 digestive biscuits or crackers or marie biscuits. Break them and add in a blender or grinder jar.

6. Now place this mixture in greased spring pan. Grease the bottom as well as the sides very well with butter. I used two pans of 5.5 inches (diameter) and 2.75 inches (height). You can also use a 5 or 6 inches round pan. Alternatively, you can even use small to medium baking bowls or ramekins for individual servings. In this case you do not need to remove the cheesecake.

7. With your fingertips or a the back of a small glass or bowl, press the biscuit+butter mixture and make a neat and even layer. Keep this pan in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes, so that the biscuit layer sets.

8. In another bowl, take 3 cups cream cheese (600 grams) and ¾ cup sugar (150 grams). All the ingredients should be at room temperature.

20. Keep the pan in a preheated oven and bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 180 degrees celsius. Preheat oven at 180 degrees celsius for 15 minutes and keep both the top and bottom heating elements on. Keep the pans in the middle rack. As mentioned before, I used two pans.

21. After baking, to check the doneness, the sides will look risen, firm and set.  and the centre of the cheesecake will be wobbly, but not runny, when you shake the pan gently. The sides will also look separated from the pan. Let the cheesecake cool at room temperature. On cooling, the centre will become firm. Do not over bake. Since temperatures vary with the size, make and litres of the oven, do keep a check while the cheesecakes are getting baked. Cracks should not form on the cheesecake.

22. Once the cheesecake has cooled at room temperature, then cover with a foil or an air tight lid. Place the pans in the fridge for 4 hours or more. You can also keep overnight.

Notes

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. 
  • You can skip making the chocolate sauce but I would suggest to make it.

  1. Hi
    I just love your recipes . Can we use whipping cream instead of normal cream for the cheesecake preparation?

  2. I tried this cake for my husband’s birthday today and the results were amazing. Everyone loved it, now no one would even want to eat the one from the market. Thanks a lot, Dassana, your recipes never fail us.

    1. So glad to know Neera and thanks for sharing the feedback. Homemade desserts are so good and once you make them, you don’t want to buy them from the market.

  3. Hi Dassana,

    I tried out this recipe and it turned out to be PERFECT!! Thanks for such an easy do!!
    One suggestion please. I had to struggle to find out how to make cream cheese. Looked up various other sites and then just did a hit n trial of all put together (basically, hung curd + cottage cheese, but I was skeptical about the quantities); fortunately it turned out fine. It would make it even smoother if you could include a link in the recipe on how to make cream cheese as well, now that I know it is super easy 🙂5 stars

    1. Hi Nidhi, thanks for this wonderful feedback and rating. Glad to know. Generally cream cheese is easily available online and in super markets. But I will try to add a recipe of cream cheese and link it with this post.

      1. Yes, it would indeed be very good to have cream cheese recipe from you. Additionally, how about a blue berry topping – can you also guide us how to prepare it? My daughter wants a blue berry cheese cake for her birthday in Nov.
