Eggless Baked Rose Cheesecake Recipe consists of a crisp biscuit base, soft rose sponge as filling and a creamy rose cheesecake on top.
Eggless baked cheesecake differ a lot from egg based cheesecakes. Condensed milk is used instead of eggs and it also takes lesser time to bake.
I love experimenting with Eggless cheesecake recipes. I have tried a lot of baked cheesecakes so far. Nearly 17 types of cheesecake flavours and I love each and every one of them. And I also plan to add more to the list.
Eggless Baked Rose Cheesecake Recipe with a Twist
I did give a twist to this eggless cheesecake. Usually I use biscuit base just as the base of the cheesecake, but in this recipe, I tried to make a huge base covering the entire tin with biscuit base. I saw this type of cheesecake in a pastry profile in Instagram and was thoroughly impressed. It gives an elegant look for the cheesecake.
I also added a layer between the base and cheesecake filling. The extra layer is a cake. The batter is added to the base and baked first. Then the cheesecake filling is topped on top of it and baked. The baking time is more, but it adds so much texture and taste in a single bite. The cake is oil based, so it stays soft even after refrigeration.
I also like firm cheesecakes. I don’t bake it to a point where the cheesecake develops cracks on top, but I bake the cake until firm to touch. But this cake, I reduced the baking time and the final cake was so soft and creamy. This complemented the cake layer and the biscuit base really well.
Points to be remembered while baking cheesecakes
Baking cheesecakes is not rocket science, but you need to take care of a few things to get the perfect cheesecake.
- Always bake in a water bath. Cheesecake should be baked at low temperature for a longer time. While baking in a water bath, the steam created will help regulate the temperature.
- Use a loose bottomed cake tin instead of spring form pan. It is easier to remove the cheesecake without breaking the crust. I myself have struggled a lot with spring form tins.
- Wrap the tin with three or four layers of foil so that the water from the water bath doesn’t seep into the cheesecake. You don’t want a soggy crust.
- While mixing the biscuit crust, don’t add the whole batch of butter at one go. Some biscuits have a lot of oil content in them, which will in turn make your crust soft. The biscuit mix should be crumbly and hold shape when you hold it in your fist.
- Do not whip the cream cheese and condensed milk to a light mixture. We don’t want to incorporate air into it. Just whisk until the mix becomes smooth without any lumps.
- You can either use milk or low fat cream to the cream cheese to thin it out.
- Bake the cake layer until firm to touch, allow it to cool for a while before adding the cream cheese filling. If the cake is not properly baked, then the cream cheese filling might mix up with the cake batter.
- The baking time depends on how you want your final cheesecake texture to be. If you want it creamy, then you need to bake until the centre is still jiggly, but when touched, it shouldn’t stick to your finger. If you want a firm cheesecake, then you need to bake it until the top is slightly soft but not jiggly.
- Open the oven door, switch off the oven and let the cheesecake cool completely. Do not disturb the hot cheesecake.
- Once cool, remove the tin from the oven, remove the foil, cover with cling film and refrigerate.
- The cheesecake needs a minimum eight hours of setting time. So leave it overnight in fridge.
- Remove the cheesecake out of the tin as soon as you take it out of fridge. Do not wait for it to return to room temperature.
- Use a warm knife to slice the cheesecake. This will give a neat cut.
- Wipe the knife clean before every cut.
- Serve it chilled.
Cream Cheese – Cream cheese is the most important ingredient you need to make a cheesecake. You can either source them at stores or you can easily make them at home. I have two types of home made cream cheese recipes in this blog, but I also have an easier yet perfect cream cheese in my class. I will give you both the blog links here. Whichever suits you, try that. Cream cheese with paneer and curd (click on the name for recipe), Cream cheese with milk and rennet (click on the name for recipe)
Condensed Milk – Sweetened condensed milk is easily available in stores. Mithai mate and Milkmaid are my favourites. But you can also make it at home. I have a very easy and perfect recipe for homemade condensed milk (click on the name for recipe) which is so much similar to store bought.
Britannia Marie Gold – This is my favourite biscuit for making the base for any cheesecake. The crispness, the sweetness are all perfect with the cheesecake filling. But if you want to make the biscuits at home, you can definitely try this Biscuits for the base ( click on the name for recipe)
Dried Rose Petals – These add a lot of flavour in the cake, base and the filling.
Rose essence – You can either use clear rose essence and combine it with pink food colour or use rose milk essence instead.
You can either make everything from scratch or buy them from stores. Cream Cheese, Biscuits for the base, condensed milk all are easily available at stores. So if you just want to put everything together without too much of work, source them. Or make everything from scratch. I will include all the recipe links below if you prefer to make it at home.

Condensed Milk ( Click on the name for recipe)
Biscuits for the base ( click on the name for recipe)
While making the biscuit base, I also added some rose petals to add some amazing flavour. This helps with the flavour distribution. The flavour is mild but really good. See how I have added the base mix on the sides of the tin too.
I also have a detailed Eggless baked cheesecake class. Click on the image below to know the details. If interested, send me a WhatsApp message to register.
Here is a collection of all the Cheesecakes I have tried so far. This includes baked cheesecake, no bake cheesecake with agar agar or without agar agar, mini cheesecakes, crust free cheesecake and many more. Hope this will help you with your favourite. Click on the image to access the page.

Hi I’ve never baked a cheesecake.. but i love reading your recipes and tell myself i should try it.. what cream cheese do you use?
Thank you. Start with a small and easy recipe. It is so much fun to make cheesecake. I always use homemade cream cheese.
Hi chef, thanks for amazing recipes
Can i use buttermilk instead of curd? IN our country we haven’t curd
Thank you. Yes, you can substitute curd with buttermilk.
Hi,love your recipe s,did you use fresh rose petals or oven dried rose petals.
Thank you. I got ready dried rose petals from Amazon.
I really love your recipes and simplicity. I have a query for this cheesecake. I had made it in Aug for my son’s birthday. It was yummm. My query is, can I reduce condensed milk as it was a bit tooo sweet for some people? If so how much and any thing I should increase to balance it? Also, I had used nestle’s condensed milk.
I plan to make it again for a friend’s birthday next week.
That cheesecake looks absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. As for the sweetness, you can definitely reduce the condensed milk. Start with 50 gm less and see if it is fine for you.
Thankyou Gayathri . Will reduce and see.
So beautiful! Let me know how it goes!
Just baked it. Sweetness is perfect by reducing 50ml. I wanted to ask you if you have any suggestion of how to cover the well? Please check the photo, the cheesecake filling did not fill up to the top 🙁
Last time it did. I have used the same ingredients and tin.
As the condensed milk is less, the filling will also be lesser by 50 gm. That is why the cakes looks like this. Next time, make the biscuit base a bit lower in height so that there won’t be a difference in height. Or you can whip some cream with rose essence and pipe tiny rosettes to fill the gap. Between, I am so glad it worked out.
Thankyou so much for the quick responses. I ended putting fresh raspberries (My husband’s idea ). It was a super hit at the birthday party ! Thankyou for your support and awesome recipe !
I wanted to ask if we can make it in a bigger sized pan? If yes then what would be the proportion for say 8” or 9”?
Wishing you a very happy new year 2023!!
Hi Smriti, yes, you can double the ingredients and bake in 9″ pan or make them 1.5 times to make in an 8″ pan.
Happy New Year 2023!
Not sure if my earlier comment got posted (this might be a duplicate).
Can we make an 8” and 9” rose cheesecake, if yes could you guide me with the measurements and baking time for the same?
Thank you. Wishing you a very happy new year. I have replied in another comment about the proportion for different sized tins. The baking time might increase by ten to fifteen minutes and not more than that.
Thankyou Gayathri . I feel so bad in bothering you with my queries. I will be making it soon as my son has asked for it again .
I have bought a new 7” pan and the height of the pan is high. I was wondering if I can increase the cheesecake filling recipe by 1.5 so it covers till the top? Would keeping the baking time the same work?
No problem. IF the height of 7″ increases, then the baking time will certainly increase by 10-15 minutes.
