Chilled no bake cheesecakes in my opinion are the best kinds of cheesecakes there are. I haven’t come across a no bake chilled cheesecake that I haven’t enjoyed and this black forest shloer cheesecake is no exception.
It could be that I once had a bad experience regarding a baked cheesecake that has made me never want to eat one again but I am tempted to give it a shot. Black forest gateaux is a traditionally 80s dessert which is where the black forest shloer cheesecake gets it’s inspiration. It also grabs it’s inspiration from fruits which can be found in the forest. Blackberries, blackcurrants, cherries, all deep and dark in colour.
A lot of fruit cheesecake recipes, especially no bake cheesecakes always have the fruit flavour on top. Here I’ve mixed it in to the cream cheese mixture, turning the black forest shloer cheesecake beautiful shade of purple.
Black forest fruits are combined with the red grape shloer which adds a sharp and musky, note (similar to red wine) to the cheesecake with sits on top of a dark chocolate biscuit crumb. Shloer red grape is the perfect non alcoholic alternative to red wine. The flavour and notes are similar to that of red wine, which when used here rounds off the fruity flavour of the cheesecake.
Most recipes require you to have a spring form pan making for easy release when making a cheesecake, but I managed just as well using an ordinary deep cake tin. After a long time in the fridge, flipping over on to a piece of parchment before decorating with dark chocolate shavings, whipped cream and cherries just like a traditional black forest gateau.
I’m thinking of changing this blog to the ‘ Oh So Boozy Baker’ with the amount of booze related recipes gracing my blog at the moment. I’m continuously finding ways to spike every day recipes and spiked tropical popsicles were the next thing to be hit with the booze stick.

Next on my alcohol to-do list: Add more alcohol to my dwindling alcohol cupboard. Seriously! I think I need to add some more liqueurs to the cupboard since that one bottle of chambord and amaretto needs some company. Maybe some pinnacle liqueurs if I can get my hands on some in the UK that doesn’t cost £35.99? There is NO WAY on earth I am paying that price for one bottle of alcohol. NO WAY!

Can one small cake square be any more fun? Bubblegum funfetti lamingtons are a whole heap of fun and child like excitement all in a small morsel of cake. Huge cake squares swirled with coloured batter dipped in bubblegum flavoured glaze then taken over the top by coating it in sprinkles! Who can say no to big cake cake square covered in sprinkles? No one human that’s for sure, or people who don’t like sprinkles. But I’ve never come across someone who doesn’t like sprinkles. Traditionally Lamingtons are Australian vanilla cake squares dipped in chocolate and coated in coconut. I love both the traditional ones and the bubblegum funfetti lamingtons. The bubblegum funfetti lamingtons are made similarly to the traditional ones. Vanilla cake batter in divided and tinted before before swirled into a cake pan. After being baked ad cooled the cake is cut into squares before being dipped in a delicious bubblegum flavoured icing glaze. The squares are then rolled in colourful sprinkles. Continue ReadingPin It
