Leftover Do You Bake? no bake Cheesecake

1 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Salt

1/4 cup Granulated Sugar

1 cup + 2 tbsp Milk

2 tsp Vegetable Oil

1 quart Vegetable Oil, for frying


1Scoop the leftover no bake cheesecake from the crust and spread onto a buttered/greased pan, in a rectangular shape, about 1” to 2” deep / high.

2Cut the frozen cheesecake into small 1-inch squares. Keep the cheesecake cubes in the freezer until you’re ready to fry them.

3To make the batter, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar in a medium bowl. Add the milk and 2 tsp of vegetable oil, and whisk until the batter is smooth and free of lumps.

4Pour the frying oil into a medium saucepan so that it’s 2 inches deep. Insert a candy/deep fry thermometer and heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 360 F (182 C). Once at 360 F, take a frozen cheesecake square and dip it in the batter, turning it over with your hands until it’s completely covered. Let excess batter drip back into the bowl, then gently drop it into the oil. Repeat with 2-3 more pieces of cheesecake, so you’re frying 3-4 at a time. Fry the balls for about 2-3 minutes’ total, flipping as necessary so that they cook evenly. Mine had a tendency to sink to the bottom when I dropped them in oil, so watch them carefully and loosen them gently from the bottom with a spatula if needed.

5Fry the cheesecake pieces until they’re puffed and a dark golden brown on all sides. Remove them from the oil using a frying skimmer or slotted spoon and place them on a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain. Repeat with the rest of the cheesecake and batter. Watch the temperature of the oil and keep it between 360 F-370 F (182 – 188 C)—remove it from the heat if it gets too hot, or let it warm up in between batches if the temperature drops too much.

6Serve warm!
