No Bake Cheesecake

20140302_163809-1


Who says a good cheesecake has to be complicated to make? Sometimes the simplest recipes give the best results. Well, in my books I think that…
Cheesecake seems to be one of those popular desserts you prefer to buy rather than make. Simply put by many home cooks who have attempted this tasty treat; working with gelatine turns a pleasant baking experience into a frustrating and complicated one.
This ‘no- bake cheesecake’ recipe has been in the Swan family for many years. Shane’s gran shared it with me and it’s been one of those desserts I keep up my sleeve when catering for a get together. This recipe has been tried, tested and approved by the Swan family, and me (of course); this is the real ‘no-bake cheesecake’ recipe deal!  
What makes this recipe even better; it only requires a handful of ingredients and does not use any gelatine! So, this post is dedicated to all those home cooks who have tried and failed at cheesecake (especially when using gelatine). This recipe is your saving grace!
