Nicks favourite thing…
I mean, if you saw my face in the video, you’ll be able to see why this cheesecake is amazing. I had one forkful of this gorgeous cheesecake and the melt in your mouth experience is real! The fact that cheesecake is creamy, fluffy and has no gelatine is nothing short of incredible!
What does it taste like?
The crust is made of Oreos. The cheesecake is a combination of cream, cream cheese, vanilla, and no gelatine? It’s all in the method! Add to that a galaxy swirl of home-made cherries and more cherries on top!
What are the ingredients I need?
Cherries – if they’re not in season where you are, then canned or jarred cherries are ok.
Sugar – I would use caster sugar if you can.
Oreos – Use them whole.
Brown sugar – dark or light will work.
Butter – I used unsalted. And make sure that when you melt it, you let it cool for about 5 minutes before using.
Cream cheese – make sure it’s softened at room temperature.
Sour cream – straight out of the fridge is best!
Powdered sugar – also known as icing sugar.
Milk powder – full fat or skim will work.
Heavy cream – this is the type of cream you use for whipping.

Cherry Ripple Cheesecake
- 1 3/4 cups cherries, halved and pitted (see notes)
- 2 tbsp granulated sugar
- 33 Oreo cookies
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 3 blocks cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup caster sugar
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar
- 1/2 cup milk powder
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
- extra cherries to serve
- Add the pitted cherries and sugar into the pan of a large saucepan and mix to combine. Place on a medium heat and cook until the mixture boils. About 2 minutes. Increase to high heat. Stir for 5 minutes and then takeoff the heat to cool to room temperature before adding to a blender to mix until smooth.
- Grease the sides of a 20cm springform pan and line with baking paper.
- Add the Oreos and brown sugar to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until you reach fine crumbs. Add the butter and pulse to coat the crumbs. Pour the mixture into the springform pan and use the back of a spoon or flat based/straight sided cup to firmly press the crumbs into the bottom and sides of the cake pan. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Add the cream cheese into the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Alternatively, you can use a hand mixer for this. Mix until fluffy and smooth, about 3 minutes. Scrape down the bowl, swap the paddle attachment for the balloon whisk attachment and add the sugar. Mix for another couple minutes. Add the sour cream, powdered sugar, milk powder, sour cream and vanilla extract and mix until everything is well combined and fluffy.
- Add the heavy cream to a clean bowl and use a balloon whisk(or regular beaters if using a hand mixer) to whip to stiff peaks. Add the cream to the cheese mixture and gently fold through until fluffy and well combined.
- Add half the mixture into the chilled cake pan and use a spatula to spread around. Drizzle with some cherry sauce and swirl with a skewer. Add the rest of the cheesecake mixture and then drizzle some more cherry sauce, about 2 tsp (reserve the remainder to serve alongside the cheesecake). Swirl and place in the fridge for 6-8 hours. Overnight is best.
