I chose to use McVities Digestive Biscuits because they're the most popular band of cookies in the UK. For a non-messy job, put biscuits into a Zipblock or any plastic holder. Seal it & pound biscuits into crumbs using eg. a rolling pin.
Mix crumbs with butter (ensure butter is soft for easy mix).
I’ve experimented with lining 2 trays with different material for easy removal. One with foil & another, with greaseproof paper. The verdict: It’s so much easier to lift with foil as the latter couldn’t take the weight & also stick to the cake. After lining the tray, transfer the crumbs mixture onto a 12” rectangular tray & press firmly using the base of a spoon. Refrigerate for about an hour.
Mix gelatin with water & dissolve under slow fire. Set aside to cool.
Cut peaches into cubes & set aside. Cut lemon into half & use a slicer to remove skin & grate it.
Whisk cheese, vanilla essence, zest & lemon juice & blend in gelatine. Add peaches & mix gently.
Spoon cheese mixture onto tray. Top up with remaining peaches & chill for about 2hrs.
Dissolve jelly crystal in hot water, then add cold water. Ensure jelly is cool before pouring onto cheese mixture. Continue to refrigerate for another 3hrs.
Using a spatula, gently loosen the cake at the sides. Remove from tray by lifting the foil & you'll get your nice cake.
Cut & put individual pieces into cake holders. Add gummies to decorate & serve chilled.
No fanciful kitchen equipments? No Fret. This is an easy-to-do non-bake Cheesecake that requires no electrical mixer or oven. Best of all, no baking experience needed!
As it was my 1st attempt, I chose an economical fruit which is peach. As can peaches are too sweet, I decided to add lemon & zest to the cake to balance the taste & to add fragrant. It was a perfect combination.
