Easy Cheesecake – in a packet!

Since we don’t all have to be mothers full time and I mentioned in the Powder Room this site is not ALL about being a mom – I will share my findings. Sometimes we want to spoil ourselves and just be good fun loving women with a sweet tooth. And we never want to work hard for it either. So I found an easy recipe for cheesecake this weekend.

When I say ‘recipe’ I am making it sound more difficult than it was. Ina Paarman has expanded her range to include cakes and deserts. Lovely. I loved her spices – first one I found was chicken spice. Then one for potatoes. Since then I have no idea how many my husband has put in our trolley.

So back to the cheesecake. You take the ingredients out the box, spread it over the bowl of water. Mix for a minute or two. Place in fridge. Mix crumbed biscuits with melted butter for base. Whip up cream. Fold cream into mixture and pour on base. And place back in the fridge for 4 hours (and ignore). And voila. Cheesecake. Only thing you need besides the box is biscuits, butter and cream.

Since it went so well I bought my next experiment in her range. I am going to try the chocolate brownies. This time my husband is happier, since he actually eats chocolate brownies! I will tell you how it goes!

    Thanks for sharing. Also not much of a cheese cake fan but it sounds like the hardest part is to ignore it for 4 hours 🙂 All the best!

    Have not tried the Cheese cake yet but I did catch a magazine show that hosted Ina Parman and she explained why she went into the whole spice thing she was looking for ingredients that were tartrazine and preservative free -her ?son I think was asthmatic or ADHD or something so all her food is “safe” for our kids why can’t I remember the whole story?x jen

    I think you’ll want to put a twitter button to your website. Just bookmarked this blog, but I had to do this by hand. Simply my advice.
