Cheesecakes always seem to be a crowd pleaser. They look so impressive when revealed with the high cream cheese mixture sitting on a buttery base. I’m a fan of the no bake cheesecake. I prefer the texture and taste and they are great to make ahead and keep in the fridge till needed. What’s more, they are so easy to make and yet look so good!
This little beauty just raises the bar a bit with the a secret ingredient which lifts the delicious malty taste to another level. Is there anyone who doesn’t love Maltesers? Anyone?? No, didn’t think so 🙂
This is a basic madeira cake recipe that never fails to be perfect with a cuppa. As I’m such a huge lemon fan and had a punnet of blueberries in the fridge, I decided to add these in for a little change to the plain madeira recipe. I also had one tub of Philadelphia Cream Cheese in the fridge which was going to run out of date, so that became the icing.
Definitely worth making this cake. It’s a perfect tea time treat, a lovely birthday cake and great to bring to someone’s house as a gift. If you don’t want to have a Cream Cheese Frosting, just make up icing using Icing Sugar and a little water or lemon juice and once the cake is cool, drizzle this over the top.
