How To Make A Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake

Hey girl hey. And boy.

Today I’m going to be sharing with you a super quick and easy recipe I saw on BusyBaker‘s blog. I’ve been wanting to make a cheesecake for the longest time and I thought this strawberry swirl was the perfect summer flavour. This is a no-bake recipe which is awesome because there was a huge chance I would’ve burned the house otherwise. 😂 It also doesn’t include eggs or gelatin which is great because I wouldn’t be able to snack on the leftover cream and I can’t eat gelatin so you could probably say this is finally the recipe where I’ll actually succeed without the help of my mom.

Well…you’re wrong. In the world of Bayance’s kitchen, something always has to go wrong. From soggy strawberries to whipped cream malfunctions, the twenty minutes I was promised to spend on this recipe turned to an hour. 😂  So if you want to find out what went down, keep reading.


What You Need

  • 1 1/2 cup of graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons of melted butter (I used unsalted)
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen strawberries (I used fresh)
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • 600 grams of cream cheese (I used philidelphia)
  • 1 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (I probably put 2..oops)
  • 2 cups of whipped cream (I used whipping…and you’ll see why)

You can basically find all this on BusyBaker’s website (link is above).

Step 1

Heat your butter in the microwave for 30-45 seconds and mix it in with your graham crackers. I think I used wayyy too much butter.


the transition between 13 & 12 tho


Step 2

Press your graham crackers at the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan and set aside.



Step 3

Add the strawberries and 3 tablespoons of sugar to a small pot on medium heat. Make sure you add a little bit of water to speed up the melting and to prevent the sugar from burning.

I don’t have a masher so my strawberry ended up looking like jam with huge clumps and the smell of the stove kind of concerned me so I didn’t keep it longer. I also ended up putting the whole cheesecake on hold because I went to Farah’s house (she’s leaving this Friday!) so I had to re-heat it lol.


Step 4

Whip the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until well blended.

I kind of added too much vanilla.


Step 5

Add in the whipped cream. Okay so basically I got the canned whipped cream which my sister kept PLAYING AROUND with. It was foamy at first but when I go to add it to the mixture, it doesn’t come out!! Only a few drops. Trust me, I tried e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. Shaking it, rinsing the nozzle – all that but no use. After I went to my friend’s house, I went to the grocery store again to get whipping cream this time and ughdhsbjxcghjk. It’s probably why everything turned out sloppy and wayyy too sweet but oh well.



Step 6

Stack layers of cream and strawberry sauce on top of each other (on the graham cracker crust), then spread it out evenly. I like to think of this as the stacking hands game lol.

Step 7

After refrigerating for at least 4 hours but overnight is probably better (mine tasted sloppy both ways lol), open the spring pan and enjoyyy!



So overall, Chrissie from Busybaker needs to make me this because mine just tasted like a sweet blob of thick cream on top of a buiscuit. At least my siblings liked it. 😂 If any of you make this, make sure to tell me how it goes and make sure to check out BusyBaker’s video because she explains it way better. I’ll see you all in my next post.

    Oh my gosssshhhhhh it looks soooo yummy! You don’t eat gelatin because you don’t eat pork, right? Sorry if that sounds like a weird question. I used to not eat pork either, but then I succumbed to the bacon. 😦 I love cheesecake so much.

    Haha, I pretend to be competent at cooking, like ”Don’t order pizza Mom, I’ll cook.” and then I go in there and the recipe says ”Fry two chicken arms over high-low heat in a juice box” and I’m just like ”whaaaaaat?” However by some miracle I usually end up with something edible in fact yesterday my sister asked me if I would make a wedding cake for her stuffed animals who were getting married (I only agreed because it was so cute) and like it actually looked okay despite falling over twice.
    I will make this and it will look horrible, but it’ll probably taste okay. Yours actually looks really good if it’s any consolation.
    Haha, wow, I have like no self confidence, XD.

        YES!! Like, hey Mom, just do me a favor and cook this whole thing but say I cooked it, ‘kay?
        I will bake you an enormous wedding cake with ”Bayance and Jonah” in fancy script across it, but I wouldn’t stand right in front of it or it might fall over on you and I’d hate to ruin your wedding. XD
        Aww, thanks! But seriously, you shoulda seen what happened to the fudge ice cream I tried to make yesterday…

        Ice cream is so hard, everyone says it’s easy but I’m always just like ”W-H-A-T-?”
        Oreo slushies don’t sound half bad, though, tbh…

    ooooh i love cheesecake – my dad and i always make it together 🙂 we tend to only soften the butter so it holds the base a little better otherwise it can get a little soggy. This was a great first attempt girly, it looks yummy 😀 x

    Omg, this sounds so tasty!! And I feel like usually the first time you cook or bake something, it never comes out quite right. That always happens to me. I’m sure if you made it again, it’d come out really well. 😊Looks really good though, hon!!

    My aunt is having a little get together at her house soon and now I really wanna make this for the party!! x
