Cream Cheese Jelly Layer Cake

I am sure not everyone like No-bake cheese cake.Perhaps they found it horrible and doesn't compare to a baked one.Well,that's including my kids!No-bake cheesecakes are a type of dessert that usually includes gelatin,jelly powder or cornstarch to make it set up.It has silky,creamy and light texture.I rather take the extra time and make a baked one because no one in my family likes it.Baked cheesecake has that firm and slightly crumbly texture.For sure the it is much more tastier.A baked cheesecake is the only true cheesecake.Although it needs extra work but worth it.No-bake cheesecake can be tasty, but are no match for a really good baked cheesecake.

Recipe

For the jelly layer use:

  • 1 pkt Strawberry Jelly or JELL-O

  • Make the liquid jelly as instructed on the packet.

The base:
  • An 8 inches thin layer sponge cake or cookies for the base.

For the cheese layer, mix:

  • 300gm of philly cream cheese

  • 200gm of cream, whipped

  • 70gm white sugar or more(This amount can be adjusted according to your taste).

  • 2 teaspoon gelatine melted in about 4 tablespoons hot water(1 tbsp lemon juice or vanilla essence) or Jelly powder(2 1/2 tsp with 5 tbsp hot water)

Method
  • Beat the fresh whipping cream. set aside.

  • Put the cream cheese into a bowl with the white sugar.

  • Beat the cream cheese and sugar till light and fluffy.

  • Gently fold in the whipped cream and gelatine or jelly mixture.Set aside.

  • After the jelly has set,put the jelly on the bottom of a round 8 inches cake pan.

  • Then,pour in the cream cheese mixture.

  • Lastly,place the thin layer sponge cake on top of the cream cheese mixture and press lightly.Refrigerate till cheese is firm (usually overnight)

  • Invert jelly cake onto a plate.Serve cool.

This looks so cute and delicious! I like that it's pink, and that it's a real cheesecake. I didn't catch the baking bit in the recipe. Is only the sponge cake the part that was baked, or were you talking about another recipe? Anyway, I think I'll try this one first and see if it appeals to my taste, too. Thanks for the recipe! Bye!
