Custard Powder Cheesecake - Women's day Special

Wish all the Women around the world a very happy Women's day :)

I am so proud to be a women who are born literally do miracles everywhere! 

Pillsbury had conducted a cookery contest on the verge of women's day a week back and I had participated in the contest as well. 

They had asked us to use their custard powder to create a delicious dessert and present it for the judges. 

After breaking my head for hours, I came up with this no bake custard powder cheese cake with oreo base and home made strawberry glee on top :) 

The dessert turned out to be very delicious and so did the judges like it too :) The contest was judged by Chef Venkatesh Bhatt of Accord metropolitan along with co chefs from the same restaurant. 

My dessert came as the runner up in the contest :) 

The simple yet delicious recipe is here for you to try!! 


Layer 1 :
    Oreo cookies – 10
    Butter – 2 tbsp
Layer 2 :
    Custard powder – 5 tsp
    Milk – 3 cups
    Sugar – 4 tbsp
    White chocolate – 100 gms
    Cream cheese – 50 gms
Layer 3 :
     Strawberries – 10
     Sugar – ½ cup


To form the base layer, crush the oreo cookies into fine powder by pulsing it in the processor.

Melt the butter and add it to the crushed cookies and mix with your fingers. Now spoon in little of the mixture to the base of the serving glass and press with your fingers to set it even. Do this for all the six serving glasses.

To make the cheese cake layer, add the custard powder to half cup of milk and mix without lumps. Now take the remaining 2.5 cups of milk in a sauce pan and add the sugar to it and boil it in medium flame. When it starts to boil reduce the flame and pour in the custard powder mixture and cook until it is thick, glossy yet in pouring consistency. Remove from flame and allow it to cool down a bit.

Meanwhile melt the white chocolate on a double boiler or microwave it for 30 seconds. Now Beat the cream cheese smoothly. Add the melted white chocolate and continue beating until smooth. Finally add the prepared custard to this and beat until well mixed and smooth. Do not over beat or allow it set for long. Do it all quickly and spoon enough quantity into each glass on top of the oreo base.

Set the cheese cake in the refrigerator for minimum of 1 hour. 

To make the strawberry sauce, wash, clean and chop the strawberries roughly. Puree it coarsely in a mixer. Now take the puree and sugar in a sauce pan and cook in low flame until it is thick and sticky yet in pouring consistency. This might take just 10 minutes. Remove from flame and allow it to cool completely.

Pour 1 tbsp of prepared sauce on top of the cheese cake and spread evenly.

Drizzle some white chocolate and decorate with a cookie on top.

Refrigerate again for an hour and serve chill :)

This is how I presented my cheese cake for the contest :)
