Minu Yabi Cheesecake?!!! Have it ready in 30 minutes!

CsCk

I am truly sorry… i don’t mean to hit on the hunger nerve during fasting hours in Ramadan… it’s just i have been bit by the desserts bug lately!

I am a person who truly dislikes cheescake. It is just not my cup of tea -or slice of cake for that matter-

But my earliest cooking memory is of me standing in the kitchen of our old house, mom mixing some mary biscuits into a fine powder and asking me to peel the kiri cheese and put it in the blender… to be frank, i am certain that making the traditional q8y style cold cheese cake was my first cooking experience ever…

and then i was blessed with a husband who simply adores cheescakes… but cannot have any since he is allergic to eggs… same thing with my brother… the cold ceese cake is a good fast compromise for their cravings.  It is also quite simple and requires nothing but some ingredients found daily in ur fridge and half an hour of your time (plus an hour to chill before serving)

Ok here goes…

The Ingredients

Then the method…

Vanilla time!!! You can just use a tea spoon of vanilla essence, but i want real vanilla with vanilla seeds in my mix! It elevates the quality of the Cake and makes it look store bought!
