No Bake Mascarpone Cheesecake Recipe

Finally i get a chance to use my homemade creamcheese to make this ultimate cheesecake. I am telling you, this is one the best ever cheesecake i ever made and enjoyed. It was so delicious. Loved it to the core. I made it today and every bit from the plate is over. It is that good.

This cheesecake is made with mascarpone cheese and cream cheese, both are made at home so it is even more delicious but a little time consuming. If you buy it from shops, then u can make this cheesecake in a matter of minutes. The orginal recipe calls for whipped cream as well. But i skipped it because i thought the mascarpone cheese will give the lightness the cheesecake want and also i added a little bit gelatin to make the cheesecake set in place.

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.

Setting Time : 2 hours or overnight

  15. Hi Aarthi

    I tried making a Mascarpone Eggless Cheesecake with agar agar.The moment i started beatjng the mascarpone cheese on low speed it just curdled. Why? Because of that my entire cheesecake got spoilt and my cheesecake went waste :(

  16. Is it because the cream cheese was having water content that it got curdled.
