Which one do you prefer? I've only tried making and eating the no bake version and love it. Have I missed out on not having a baked one? smile

Baked ones, buying the ingredients seems expensive, but they are easier than they sound and taste amazing.

Baked ones are about a trillion times better - you're definitely missing out.

No bake all the way here. I don't really like the texture of baked cheesecakes.

No bake!

Obviously no bake is easier, but I find baked cheese cakes so much lighter and delicious. Mmmmm...

Donna Hay's baked vanilla cheesecake recipe is delicious. I make no bake ones too but for a real treat the baked is a favourite in our house.

Definitely baked! Yum!

Baked! There's always something a bit gross and too wet about non-baked/raw.

Not baked, do not like the texture of baked ones.

Both lovely but vey different. The bakewell baked one n BBC Good Food is great, only through great feats of willpower do I still have 1/4 left in my fridge

I like both. My favourite is a no bake lemon cheesecake. Or a malteasers one.

Baked cheesecake is a food of the gods. Have yet to make one I don't like. Just don't use reduced fat cream cheese.

I find unbaked to be a bit wet and sloppy and generally too sweet. Sorry. Reminds me of the stuff with gloopy purple berries on top.

Baked ones are dry and horrible. No bake all the way!

PurpleDaisies Fri 29-Jul-16 17:22:29

Just don't use reduced fat cream cheese.
I can top that. My nan made one with onion flavoured philedelphia. She did pick out the visible onion bits but it was truly disgusting.

Or use marscapone. Yum. Don't know if that one can be baked!

Difficult choice. I love them both. Non bake reminds me of my childhood.

No bake cheesecake!! I like the texture!

elgol Fri 29-Jul-16 18:03:10

purple that sounds truly hideous.

Pestilence13610 Fri 29-Jul-16 18:23:33

Mascarpone works, do not use fat reduced cream cheese, they beat water into it works for spreading but it all goes wrong when you try and bake it.

It was actually worse than it sounds elgol. grin. I can still taste it now if I think about it. My nan was a legend and a fabulous cook normally. This was a notable miss.

Laughing at the onion cheesecake. Reminds me of the time I accidentally used custard powder instead of cornflour to thicken a casserole....

ChardonnayKnickertonSmythe Fri 29-Jul-16 20:44:05

Baked, but you mustn't overbake.

Also, google Dan Lepard Upside Down Cheesecake, it's fantastic.

PurpleDaisies Fri 29-Jul-16 20:44:16

Oh cait, that made me laugh out loud.

Definitely no bake! Can't stand the dry, craggy texture of a baked one.
