I use the condensed milk and double cream "cheesecake" that thickens when citrus juice is added. It's a recipe for key lime pie that doesn't need cooking. It does end up a bit sweet, but the lime juice counters it quite well.

The filling looks alright but I'm not sure about the cornflakes but they would be preferable to, malted milk and rich tea or Ritz crackers :? Actually, cornflakes might be a bit like school treacle tart :chops: :chops:.

I don't really care for fruit on top of cheesecake, I like the delicate flavour of the cheese and lemon.

i think it looks like she farms out the making of her (photographed) examples to the cooking club of her local primary school.

I love both baked and unbaked styles, I think both are valid to be called cheesecake.

Am I wrong in thinking that the baked ones originated in America ?

The Jewish deli in Belsize Park used to do a lovely baked cheesecake when I lived there, thick chunks of cheesecake with sultanas, but that was 1967.

I think that it is traditionally a Jewish food which went to the USA with the immigrants. I had never heard of it until I was in Australia in my teens (late 1960's) when someone made a fabulous baked one - with sultanas - for a pot luck church supper we went to. It was quite a talking point and we all loved it. I only remember seeing 'raw' ones in the last 20 years or so - possibly it coincides with brands like Philadelphia cheese being easily available and relatively inexpensive in supermarkets.

The Deli in Guildford (North Street) used to do something similar at roughly the same date.

Hmmm, we are all remembering that lovely kind of baked cheesecake - but from the 1960's ... does it need a revival campaign? I have to say, I haven't seen it around to buy for a long time.

I like this Gordon Ramsay baked cheesecake recipe. I sometimes add pre-soaked sultanas and a little lemon zest, as my Jewish M-I-L did.

and

I don't think baked cheesecakes are really out of fashion, perhaps it's just that they are more time consuming to make, and often crack during cooling, so seem difficult or at least, temperamental.

When I used to try and blog I had a bit of a cheesecake thing. Shirley Ekstein's was the best ever. Some of you will know Shirley from the BBC boards.

Another preference for baked but I also like Mary Berry's really quick lemon and ginger unbaked one. It doesn;t have any added sugar and is just equal volumes of marscapone and lemon curd, HM if possible, on a gingernut base.

the idea of cornflakes as a base for anything is :sprout: :sprout:

I have had a very similar to this that I use if I can lay my hands on Philly
