No Bake Cheesecake Recipe

From James Martin, A Ginger & Chocolate No Bake Cheesecake Recipe

Unlike baked cheesecakes, this no bake cheesecake recipe is so easy and quick to make.

You can literally knock it up just before serving.

Alternatively, make earlier and leave in the fridge until you are ready to impress your guests!

With a no bake cheesecake recipe like this you will need to use full fat cream cheese as this helps the structure stay in place without it sliding off the biscuit base.

It originally comes from James Martin’s cook book called Desserts and it really is a lovely cheesecake to make.
