I tried numerous Burnt Cheesecake from different cafes and I think I came up with one recipe that will sure to please everyone. It’s definitely not your usual cheesecake recipe, or one that is conventional. Since this cheesecake is so simple to make, you really need layers of flavors in order to bring out the most of the cake. What I did was to incorporate some of the more pungent cheese like parmesan to give that wonderful cheesy aroma. And if you guys have been following my recipes, you would know that yogurt is my favorite ingredient to add when it comes to cheesecake! Yogurt helps to enhance the flavor of the cream cheese, giving it a more tangy flavor to the cheesecake.

Strawberry Jelly Tofu Cheese Cake (Low-Calorie) – Christmas


Can you believe that this was made up of tofu?


This cheesecake is low in calories compared to the conventional ones. The cheese layer was mainly made up of cream cheese, tofu and yogurt. No heavy cream was added.

In fact, I actually made it using natural sweetener called Stevia! I will talk to you guys about it very soon as it is my ongoing project I have been working on. Meanwhile, let’s head back to this recipe. ^^


It is great for vegetarians too as I had used agar agar powder instead of gelatin. It is light and refreshing, yet somehow creamy. I really love this dessert especially after a heavy meal or dinner. It makes a great light cheesecake for night guest too!
