Non Bake Oreo Cheesecake




I supposed to post the birthday cake that I had made for my grandma, a Banana Custard Ice Cream Cake. So sad that I was not able to trace the photos in the memory card, dunno what's went wrong :(.

This cake was an order from my best friend M's colleague, the 1st cake order that I have accepted. There were many people asking about ordering cakes from me but I always laugh it off as I am not sure whether are they joking or serious about it :P.

M has been "boast' about how nice and delicious my bakes was to her colleague E. So E asked me through M whether can I bake a birthday cake for him. Since I thought I will be available and E was seriously requesting for it so I agreed to take up this order.


I didn't know the date was crashed with my mooncake making, dunno why I do not have much mood to make mooncake this year compare to last year (probably cos last year was the first time making mooncakes so full of enthusiasm) but still dragged myself to do so to fullfil my promises. Since I had tight schedule so I decided to make a non bake cheesecake which I can save some of the times on frosting of cake.

I made a non bake oreo cheesecake that I had made many times due to the great responses. My pipping and decoration skill still has not got any improvement, guess I must be more hardworking to practise more :P. Hope E won't mind it and will like this cake.

Recipe adapted from Aunty Yochana.

Biscuit Base:
100 gm Digestive Biscuits - crushed with roller
50 gm melted butter

Mix them together and press into an 8" springform tin. Chill it.

Cream Cheese Filling:
250 gm Cream cheese
50 gm Icing sugar
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup (I can't find my maple syrup so I replaced with manuka honey)
60 ml milk
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
10 Oreo cookies - chopped coarsely
260 ml whipped cream - whipped till medium peak
1 Tbsp gelatine powder + 70 gm water

Some extra crushed Oreo Cookies for sprinkling on top

Method:
1. Measure water into a bowl and sprinkle in the gelatin (without stirring with a spoon). Set aside to allow the gelatin grains to swell (10 mins) before setting the bowl over a pot of simmering hot water. Stir with a spoon and once the gelatin melts, remove the bowl from the pot and set aside to cool to room temperature)
2. Beat cream cheese with icing sugar till well combined.
3. Add in fresh milk and mix till well combined. Add in gelatine mixture and mix well.
4. Fold in whipped cream and divide mixture into 2 portions.
5. Fold in chopped Oreo cookies into 1 portion and maple syrup or honey and vanilla extract into the other portion.
6. Pour in the white portion into the chilled biscuit base. Level the cream cheese filling and put it into the fridge to let it set.
7. Pour the Oreo cream cheese filling onto the set white cream cheese and level it.
8. Put into the fridge to let it set for 2 to 3 hours. (I put in freezer to have ice cream alike texture)
9. Remove from freezer to decorate as desire and put back to freeze it.
10. Slice and serve chilled

  5. Jess,

    Ur oreo cheesecake defintiely looks better and more yummy than many store bought one. I like the layers, they are very neat.

    The grey colour layer actually reminds me of black sesame. How about making a black sesame cheesecake next time?

  6. Hey Jess, this is a very neat cake and just perfect. May I konw how do you transfer it to the cake board (so neately)? ( it's a bit silly quest :D , cos my prev cheese cake got stuck somehow to the base of the tin)

  11. Thanks Evy. No lah, that is not silly question. Was it the biscuit base got sucked on the cake tin base? You must ensure that the biscuit crumbs was pressed firmly to the cake tin base, I very kiasu, I kept pressing until I am sure that the biscuit base is "tight" enough. Cos if the biscuit base is a bit loose or not tight enough, it will crack when you try to unmould it from the cake tin. Chill it at least 2 hrs before you remove from fridge to pour the cheese batter on it.

    I will normally use 2 metal spatulas, 1 big 1 small (which wat I ve at home). Use the big spactula to losen 1 corner of the biscuit base a bit at 6 oclock direction and insert in through the bottom of the base. Slowly lift up the cake a bit and insert another spactula in at 3 oclock or 12 oclock & cross both spactula to support. Lift up the whole cake slowly using both spactula and transfer to the cake board which place just next behind.
    After you are "seasoned", sometimes 1 spactula can do the job liao.

    Pardon for my lousy illustration, hope you can understand.

  15. Jess,
    I love the 2 layers of cake, one with oreo, one plain. Very pretty.
    IMPO, I think if the top deco oreos are halved, then it won't be too tall lor, then maybe can put 10 pc of halves so that each slice will have one piece of oreo. But it still looked good.
    Congratulations on your first order.
    I wish you more cakes to come.

  63. Hello Jess.. its me again... =)

    6. Pour in the white portion into the chilled biscuit base. Level the cream cheese filling and put it into the fridge to let it set.
    (How long to chill it before I pour in the next layer?)

    7. Pour the Oreo cream cheese filling onto the set white cream cheese and level it

    ReplyDelete
  64. Thanks Coraine for trying out the cake and glad to hear that you and your husband love the cake :). Well, this is what my husband asked me too, he dun wan me to over tire myself but I told him, baking is stress relief exercise for me :P.

  65. Hi Lilin, I never time it but about 1/2 to an hr should able to set liai. Dun need wait till fully set, when u press it like tofu can already.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Jess, May I know if you are using dairy or non-dairy whipping cream?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Thanks Mimosa Cafe.

    KK, sometimes I used non-dairy, sometimes dairy depending on whether I have any stock balance at home. For this birthday cake, I used dairy.

    ReplyDelete
  68. The cake looks really pretty!! I was wondering, do the 10 oreo cookies stated in the "cream cheese filling" have their fillings intact during chopping, or must they be removed 1st? I'm a really new cook, so pardon my question, and thanks! =)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi - I am really happy to discover this. cool job!

  70. Hey there!!
    Your cake looks delicious!
    quick question though... if I wanted to replace the digestive biscuits with Oreo's for the base would the quantities be the same??

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Anonymous, be it oreo or digestive biscuits, you can use the same quantity.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Jess, Can I make this 1-2 days ahead n keep it in the freezer for later consumption? Thanks!

  74. hi! i made this cheesecake just now and i accidentally put the oreo cream cheese in the fridge and set too.. after realising it i took out from the fridge - about 45 mins later - will it affect the cheesecake? will the oreo mixture stick to the white cream cheese? :(

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi angle apologise for late reply, hope you resolve the issue by now. I ve not encounter this before so I am not too sure how to do it. But I think won't have any prob to stick to each other if the cheesecake melt a bit then u put in fridge to reset it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. hi jess..
    i wanna to ask if i use 10" cake tin, is it use same recipe or nid to add on?? hw much tat i nid to add on??

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi Chinhuan, if I wanna reduce or increase the cake size from original recipe, normally I will do some calculation e.g. 250g cream cheese for 8" to increase to 10" will be 313g (250/8*10) so for this recipe to increase to 10" :

    Biscuit Base:
    125 gm Digestive Biscuits
    63 gm melted butter

    Cream Cheese Filling:
    313 gm Cream cheese
    63 gm Icing sugar
    1 1/4 Tbsp Maple Syrup (I can't find my maple syrup so I replaced with manuka honey)
    75 ml milk
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    13 Oreo cookies - chopped coarsely
    325 ml whipped cream - whipped till medium peak
    1 1/4 Tbsp gelatine powder + 88 gm water

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi Jess,

    Your cake look nice and i would like to try. But i have a question here. If i were to only make one layer (the oreo layer and without the maple syrup or honey and vanilla extract portion), is it possible? Meaning to say that my ingredient will exclude the maple syrup and vanilla extract...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi KCYea If you only wanna make oreo layer, I dun see there is any prob, you just need to omit maple syrup and vanilla extract and up the quantity of oreo cookies will do.

      Delete
  79. H,, the wipping cream used non dairy wipping cream or dairy whipping cream? TQ.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi! Just wanna know, will the cake melt or doesn't stand after awhile? Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi the cake will not melt due to the gelatin added, only will soften but I am not sure can stand for how long, I think 1 hr shdn't be a prob as I had transport the cake before and took about an hr for total journey. For such case, I will put the cake in freezer so it will soften slower. The cake tasted like ice cream if you freeze it and serve immediately.

      Delete
  81. Hi! i tried this recipe today and the cake taste great! but i think i will prefer it without the white layer and maybe more oreo. but kudos to all the great recipe! the recipes i tried from your blog have not failed so far. so THANKS for the great recipes! (:

    ReplyDelete
