April was a funny old month here. My Facebook page went a bit insane overnight with my Easter cheesecake recipes racking up almost 10 million views in the month.

It was so fantastic to see so many people making my recipes on Easter Sunday, I made a little collage of some of the photos and had a weep (sentimental over baking, that is how I ROLL).

We had a lovely Easter break, full of fun and friends and delicious food. But a couple of weeks later and can I be honest with you dear bloggy pals? I’m kind of missing the cheesecake excitement around these parts.

Sometimes I think possibly I should start a desserts dedicated blog to house all of these beauts, but you know, this site is the stories of my life and desserts after definitely one of my stories.

So, my cheesecake dabbling joined forces with one of my great sugary loves – NUTELLA. It was always going to be a good marriage am I right? Hello NO BAKE NUTELLA CHEESECAKE!

This really is a show stopper. I think brown things never look quite as good in photos as they do in reality. Please believe me when I say that this is seriously set in my top 5 favourite ever things I’ve baked in my whole life ever amen. Yes. It’s THAT STINKING GOOD.

I sketched out my recipe idea for this, based on my last cheesecake recipe, then did some research and stumbled upon Queen Nigella’s Nutella Cheesecake.

She doesn’t use any whipped cream in hers which I’m intrigued by, I imagine it must give more of a dense torte texture. I prefer a lighter cheesecake so have kept in my usual whipped double cream.

After a few trial runs I also ended up using almost double the Nutella I planned on using. Oops. But honestly, if you’re going to do it, you may as well really do it, RIGHT?

Tips for making the No Bake Nutella Cheesecake (sorry, there’s quite a few, please hang in there):

  • The consistency of the Nutella Cheesecake should be sliceable but not solid. It will be a lot less solid than a baked cheesecake. Something like room temperature butter, it will give a little quiver if you wobble it gently.
  • To maintain the texture of this Nutella Cheesecake it is best to freeze it as mentioned in the recipe for it to set. Then it’s fine kept in the fridge (if you have any leftovers!)
  • When whipping the double cream, be sure to watch it very carefully. It should be just forming soft floppy peaks, but still hold it’s shape. Too runny and the no bake cheesecake will be sloppy, too stiff and it will be too dense.

 

  • An angled palette knife is a really inexpensive piece of kit but it makes SUCH a difference when smoothing things like this out! You can buy them on Amazon here: Angled Palette Knife. I use this to smooth the sides of the cheesecake after it comes out of the tin.
  • Do sift the icing sugar, it will give a much smoother texture to the cheesecake. Don’t ignore this as I normally do!
  • I would stick to Philadelphia creme cheese for this (and full fat) it seems more stable than supermarket own brands.

 

  • Use a tin with either a springform (the type where the side unclips) or a removable base.
  • Warm a sharp, thin knife under a hot tap and then dry it. Use this to run around the outside of the cake, inside the tin, before removing. Remove the knife and wipe it as you work your way around the cake.
  • The recipe is for a 7″ tin (which is also deep) (not a standard sandwich cake tin, it will overflow! See the link below for the type of tin I use). You can use smaller or larger but your cheesecake will obviously be taller or shorter. I would DEFINITELY recommend this tin though as it is a great size and very easy to use.

  1. I didn’t spot the video mentioned in the comments, oops! Love this but next time I think I need a little less lemon juice, must have been a big lemon as it’s quite a strong flavor in the finished cheesecake which is a bit too much.

  2. For those who are asking for measurements to be converted to US measurements, use the calculator on your smart phone. there is a reason why most people have smart phones. becuase we are living in a time Albert Einstein feared the most, and that is where smart phones replace dumb people.

  3. Just to make this less complex for anyone that doesn’t own a scale. It would be easier if the recipe just stated the exact measurements such as 2 boxes of cream cheese.
