⁉️ FAQ

Do you have questions about this recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Why is my cheesecake grainy?

If you’ve been storing it in the freezer for over a month, ice crystals have formed in the cheesecake, making it grainy. If you just made it, you probalby didn’t soften your cream cheese enough.

What’s the difference between cheesecake and no bake cheesecake?

Trational cheesecake is baked and uses eggs or flour – sometimes both – to thicken the cream cheese mixture and create the custard-like texture it’s known for. No bake cheesecake is actually more of a mousse made with whipped cream and cream cheese.

Is no bake or baked cheesecake better?

Neither is better than the other. They’re just different. Baked cheesecake tends to be more dense and tangier than no bake cheesecake, which is lighter and sweeter.
