I am calling this the Mother’s Day Cheesecake with leftover Easter candy.
Or, No Bake Cadbury Cheesecake.
Either way you name it, it was GONE in 60 seconds. Just like the movie!
Everybody that has read my blog for longer than 5 minutes is aware of my love for cheesecake.
I haven’t posted a new one for a long time, but Easter just couldn’t come and go without a cheesecake creation on Marilyn’s Treats.
I put this one together virtually at the last minute so it is making a debut after the holiday.
I am calling this the Mother’s Day Cheesecake with leftover Easter candy. Or, No Bake Cadbury Cheesecake.
Besides the plain cheesecake in the middle I have mixed some of the Cadbury eggs and mixed them together!
This delicious combination is also topped with the Cadbury Eggs.
Warm hot fudge is swirled around the top. But it doesn’t cover the mound of bite size candies sitting on the cheesecake layer.
Of course you can change the flavor and use any one that suits your taste.
Now you can have your cake and eat it too!
This isn’t your traditional carrot cake.
Better than Grandma used to make but just as moist and delicious.
This culinary treasure is easy to put together and full of secret goodness.
And the best part of all is that it is Gluten Free so you can enjoy a big piece!
This is one of the few two layer cakes you will see on this blog.
That is because I prefer the bundt style or a rectangular cake.
Decorating the cake is just not my forte so I ask my brilliant daughter-in law to do her magic after I bake the cake and prepare the frosting.
Every ingredient in the cake screams goodness and decadence.
The batter is made from flour, sugar, brown sugar, carrots, cinnamon, eggs, pecans and raisins and pecans. All that is missing is that ray of sunshine. Or is it?
Don’t get me started on the cream cheese frosting.
This particular recipe is smoother and a bit less sweet than most I have tried.
I love how she added the pecans on the outside of the cake.
And she piped that fingerling carrot instead of using the sugar one I bought at the store.
We served this cake to my sister on her birthday.
The look on her face was priceless.
And the look on my daughter-in-law’s face was even better as my sister asked what bakery it came from.
The cake was even more delicious than we hoped it would be.
Even with all the heavy ingredients the batter was light and the cake not chewy.
All I can say is…..Just Make It for the one you love.
This pie is a combination of apple, cranberries and walnuts.
While this pie is a good choice anytime, I like to make this for religious holidays to keep it as a special treat.
The combination of fruits and nuts satisfies the craving for a more traditional pie while providing a unique blend of flavors and textures.
I like to use pie dough from the dairy aisle, but a made from scratch crust recipe can be found below.
This particular Pie was introduced to me by my husband’s side of the family.
It is especially an Easter tradition they follow to serve this pie.
They also serve a homemade loaf of bread with a cross pressed into the bottom of the loaf.
Growing up I had never been exposed to these traditions.
I became interested in carrying on the traditions as my own family grew.
The combination of apples, cranberries and walnuts are what make this Trinity Pie even more appealing.
With an apple orchard just up the street we buy all our apples there when our favorites are in season.
I find a nice tart apple to make the best pies.
The cranberries I like to use are fresh from the grocery store near us.
I wouldn’t recommend using frozen as they would add too much moisture.
But if you find a way to incorporate them, please come back and let me know!
The textures of each piece swirled together with the spices and seasonings tease your taste buds to identify all the ingredients.
In my home we prefer pies over cakes and this one just fits the bill for special occasions.
The pastry crust included in the recipe is the one that was handed to me when I received this recipe.
I am not much of a crust maker. You will find my own All Butter Pastry Crust one my daughter-in-law makes. It is referenced in the grey bar below.
I personally prefer making the dairy case pie crust. They are just my style.
But don’t tell anyone! I don’t want to tarnish my reputation.
I have three go to crusts for my desserts. See my All Butter Pastry Crust, No Bake Oreo Crust and my Easy Basic Graham Cracker Crust just click on the recipe you need!.
I am really loving these cheesecakes with the fruit in the filling as well as on top the cheesecake.
I don’t usually use a lot of raspberries in recipes even though I love them. The seeds are just a problem for me.
With Spring almost here in Michigan I am really excited to use local in season produce and fruit.
Eliminating carbs seem to help too! Eliminating sugar in my diet has even made me fell healthier and more alert.
To all you ladies that preach these habits I am finally listening!
As I revive older posts though you may still see the old “me” in my foods. Especially this one. But I wanted to go out with a bang!!
The fresh taste of the raspberries mixed with the fluffy cheesecake filling is a pleasant surprise for your palate.
This is not a New York style cheesecake I promise.
The addition of sour cream also adds to the taste and fluffiness.
All this deliciousness sits on top of a homemade graham cracker crust.
Adding the mini cadbury eggs gives the Raspberry Cheesecake a holiday look as well as taste.
For my own personal preferences I will be adding more cadbury eggs to the filling and adding them in some sort of pattern on the top instead of the crumbs.
I just know your family will love this holiday cheesecake as much as we do!
