The word STRESSED when reversed is DESSERTS and what's better than indulging yourself in your favourite dessert to comfort your soul? Warm cheesecake with a crunchy and crispy base and your favourite toppings are all you need on a gloomy mid-week day. Cheesecake is a delicious dessert with one or more layers. A mixture of soft, fresh cheese (usually cottage cheese, cream cheese, or ricotta), eggs, and sugar make up the main and thickest layer of the cake. If there is a bottom layer, it typically consists of a crust or base made from digestive biscuits, graham crackers, pastry, or occasionally sponge cake that has been crushed. Cheesecake can be flavoured in a variety of ways. The first cheese layer may be flavoured with vanilla, spices, lemon, chocolate, pumpkin, or other flavours. The main toppings can be fruit, whipped cream, almonds, cookies, fruit sauce, chocolate syrup, or other ingredients that add additional flavours and aesthetic appeal. Talking about cheesecakes, one cannot miss the classic Vanilla cheesecake. Though vanilla is a basic flavour when added to cheesecake and served warm, can do wonders! Whether you serve vanilla cheesecake plain or top it with your preferred fruit, caramel, or ganache, it will always be creamy and delectable.



1. 75 gms salted butter

2. 250 gms biscuits

3. 680 gms soft cheese

4. 75 gms icing sugar

5. 2 tsp vanilla essence

6. 300 ml double cream

7. ½ lemon ( finely zested)


1. Heat some butter in a skillet until it is melted and continue to cook until it turns golden brown and emits a nutty aroma.

2. Process the biscuits into crumbs in a food processor. Add the crumbled biscuits to the butter and stir continuously. 

3. In another pan place the biscuit mixture and compact it while smoothing it with the back of a spoon. Let it refrigerate for a while while you head to the next step. 

4. In a bowl put the soft cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla, and mix with an electric beater for a few seconds to loosen the mixture. 

5. Then add the double cream in quarters and allow the mixture to thicken as you beat. 

6. By the time you've finished, the mixture should be so thick that you need to shake a spoon to release it.

7. Then beat in some lemon zest and place the icing sugar and cheese mixture on top of the biscuit base and smoothen it up. 

8. Refrigerate it overnight and serve chilled the next morning!


1. You can top it up with fruits, biscuits, or any topping of your choice to enhance the flavour.

2. While heating the butter, make sure you don't burn it.
