10 Minute Cheesecake

This is such a easy recipe but it will make your guests think you have slaved for hours. Simplicity at its best!

Recipe from:

Makes 8-10 servings.


For Cheesecake Base:

  • 1 packet (approximately 1 3/4 cups crushed) tennis biscuits (or you may use graham crackers), crushed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

For the Cheesecake Filling:

  • 1 tin (395g/14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tubs (16 ounces total) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence (vanilla extract)


Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/350 degrees F.

For the Cheesecake Base:
Combine the crushed tennis biscuits (or graham crackers, if using) with the melted butter and press mixture into base of dish *(See Note Below).

For the Cheesecake Filling:
In a large mixing bowl, combine the softened cream cheese, lemon juice, and the vanilla essence. Add the tin of sweetened condensed milk. Beat mixture until smooth (you may use a hand or an electric mixer).

Pour (or spoon) the mixture over the base and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees C/350 degrees F.

Let cool and serve.

Topping (optional)
Cheesecake also be topped with a low-fat cream and fresh fruit like strawberries or other berries and sprinkled with chocolate shavings.

I recommend using a 9 or 10 inch springform pan, or a 9 or 10 inch metal pie plate for baking the cheese cake in.
