Cheese, cherry and pineapple has always been a classic combination. A perfect and a classy blend to have together. These bites are as classy as that. This is a little miniature eggless cheesecake filled with pineapple chunks and the little cherry pie burst. You will definitely love every bite of it!!
The New York style cheescake has always been a fascination. But an eggless cheesecake was something I always wanted to give a shot.
Pineapple and cherry is a flavor I love to have in any cakes. This was a cheesecake!! So why not? These little cupcake version of cheesecake isn’t new, but definitely the little pineapple chunks in every bite with a little cherry pie surprise is something to drool upon. This is incredibly creamy, juicy and the digestive crust is fun to love!! Its a perfect summer dessert to try on.
What goes in a cherry pineapple cheese cupcake
These cupcakes are made using cream cheese, whipping cream, sugar, cornflour, condensed milk and essence. The chunky pineapples to go in and the topping is whipped cream frosting and the little cheery on the top!
You will also love the sweet cherry swirl that goes into it along with the pineapple chunk creating bite bombs of flavour and texture. Not to forget the cracker crust with the butter that goes into it!! Sounds so yummy!!
How to make these mini cheesecakes
These little cakes are super fun and easy to bake. They come out in just 15 minutes of baking time and no fuzz about the bake bath. It’s all about the temerature and the timing. The cherry pie/compote is very easy to.
Just dump together the pitted cherries along with sugar and water until cooked and boiled well reduced to a syrup consistency and done it is!! Squeeze few drops of lemon in it and it’s ready to pour upon. I made a batch of it and refrigerated.
Storing the mini cheesecake
These mini cheesecakes are absolutely adorable and are a perfect bite size calories to indulge upon any time. You can make a batch of it and easily store it in a covered box upto a week if well refrigerated.
You can even freeze them upto a month. Wrap them tightly when freezing. Avoid storing them with any other odour foods as they may end up smelly. Thaw them in the fridge before consuming.
