Iced Coffee Cheesecake, no bake

Eiskalter Kaffee-Cheesecake ohne backen

Iced Coffee Cheesecake you don’t have to bake! That’s the star of today’s post. People have told me that it tastes a little like tiramisu, but it does not contain mascarpone or raw eggs, this truely is a cheesecake, combined with whipped cream and coffee you will have creamy deliciousness on your plate. I didn’t go for the traditional cookie or graham cracker crust, instead I decided for pumpernickel. Not sure if you have ever heard of it, this is extremely dark and moist bread from Germany. Obviously you can replace it, but the sweet rye bread does add a very nice touch to this cheesecake.

Eiskalter Kaffee-Cheesecake ohne backenSo as stated, the bottom layer is a mix up pumpernickel, butter and coffee, which serves as the crust. The second layer is a mix of cream cheese and whipped cream with coffee flavor, the thrid layer is the same plus melted chocolate, and the top layer is whipping cream combined with chocolate, dusted with some cocoa powder.

Creamy German Cheesecake with Strawberries

Der cremigste Käsekuchen mit Erdbeeren

Creamy German Cheesecake with strawberries, that’s what you will get today. You may ask what German cheesecake is compared to American cheesecake? The main differences are that you use quark or curd cheese instead of only cream cheese and you have a pie crust to keep it all together and not your typical cookie crust. Do you want to give this cheesecake a try? The version you see below is the creamiest of them all. You can eat it plain or serve it, as I did, with a strwaberry topping. If you rather try some other, this is more traditional cream cheesecake with blueberries a no refined sugar, this one with apples and caramel, this one is the traditional Japanese, or a no-bake with limes.Der cremigste Käsekuchen mit Erdbeeren Continue Reading…

Rainbow Color Purple: Blueberry Cheesecake with no Refined Sugar

Heidelbeer-Käsekuchen

This blueberry cheesecake is almost a no-bake cake and does not contain any refined sugar. All its wonderful color and flavor comes from blueberries. I am sure you will love it as much as we did. It consists of an easy two-ingedient cookie base and a creamy blueberry mousse. The best of all, you can make it truly vegetarian, I give tips to make it with agar agar, which is a vegetarian jelling agent. Feel free to use gelatine, if you are more familiar with it, but I actually prefer agar agar.

Heidelbeer-KäsekuchenHeidelbeer-KäsekuchenI am also posting this recipe as I am hosting the blog event “Colorful Food.” I basically invite you to create a recipe in one of the seven rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink.

I first started with red strawberry pancakes, which were followed by cute little mango mini cakes for orange, lemon soufflé inside a lemon for yellow, a very green kiwi sheet cake, a spirulina and blackberry smoothie for blue (vegan!), aaaaaand, today this blueberry cheesecake for purple. As you can see, we are still missing pink, so be sure to check back!

Japanese Cheesecake

Japanese Cheesecake

Japanese CheesecakeJapanese cheesecake. I have always wanted to try it. Japanese cheesecake is a very delicate matter. It has to be handled as careful as raw eggs. It does contain a lot of eggs. Maybe that’s why it is as light as a feather. No, this is not your typical American cream cheese cake. It is closer to an angel’s food cake than anything else. It has cream cheese, yes, but the eggs help to create this very creamy and light texture.

No-bake Lime Cheesecake

Lime Cheesecake

We had so many limes at home. So what to do with them? Smoothies? Cocktails? I decided to go with a no-bake cheesecake. With lots of lime flavor. I am really proud because I invented this recipe. Normally I like to follow recipes. It is nice to simply follow instructions, one step at a time. It is very relaxing. At least for me baking is really relaxing. That’s why I am so proud that I invented this cake. A creamy cheesecake with a nice tangy lime flavor. Trust me, you will taste the lime.

Creamy Blueberry Cheesecake (no bake)

I have to confess something, so far I have never worked with gelatine or a vegetable gelling agent. I know, it is crazy. Somehow I thought it was super complicated and I also felt that often the taste was weird or cakes looked unattractive. But I decided enough was enough and simply said, OK, let’s give it a try. I decided to try with this wonderful cake. I mean, wouldn’t you want to try a bite of this beauty?
