View Full Version : Need help with cheesecake recipe
01-05-2007, 01:56 PM
I'm making my first cheesecake and I've mixed the cashews with the liquids. Can anyone tell me if it's supposed to be fairly runny..and will firm up with refrigeration, or should the cheese be fairly thick?

Yes, it is a little runny and yes, it will firm up in the fridge. Give it a couple of hours then try it. If it is still too soft, you might try adding a couple of extra bananas next time :)
And if it is still soft after 2 hours.. eat it as a pudding! YUM!

Thank you Rowan! Heh, I'm trying to have it ready for my son to take home with him later this afternoon and I've just never made these sort of things for us, but he's on his own now with his girl who wants to eat at restaurants that are less than optimal to ensure his devotion to raw foods 5 nights a week : ( I am trying to woo her over to the raw side. I'll try popping it in fridge now.

one of those cake server spatulas. It makes getting the pieces out without falling apart easier.
Let us know how it turns out.
Do you have berries to put on top?
YUM! I miss cheesecakse!

Yes, I'm trying to decide whether to do strawberries or chocolate. The chocolate might go over better, but the strawberries are better for you and also help in digesting all those nuts...

how about both?! Yummm! you could do a chocolate sauce over the cheesecake, then strawberry slices on top! Or even the other way around...berries on top, then u could make a batch of sauce and they could pour it over their pieces.

heh heh..ooooh, decadent!
I settled on strawberry and my son at least loved it. We will see if the girlfriend does. I didn't care for it myself, lol, too many nuts in one place for me....
