Standard

Mango Cheese Cake is a rich, creamy dessert prepared with Mangoes. Mango cheese cake can be prepared in two forms, one with paneer and condensed milk whereas the other with milk, cream cheese and sugar. I have prepared this with paneer and condensed milk, as it was very easy and took less time to prepare.

Mango Cheese Cake / Mango Cheese Cake with Condensed Milk

Usually I like cheese cakes, but thought it would be a big process to prepare and due to my laziness never tried it. But this time when my son’s birthday was nearing and on the other hand my mango mania – resulted in this process. The result was best and when my kids had this, my son wanted me to prepare it for his Birthday party 😊

Mango cheese cake is an easy, simple and delicious dessert, also using condensed milk and cottage cheese/paneer saves time in the making and just takes 2 to 3 hrs to get chilled. Easy and simple dessert for parties, recently it was my son’s Birthday last Monday, I was requested to prepare around 40 mini cheese cakes by him. Let me share the recipe…
