Egg Less Starwberry Cheese Cake

By Harini
With such an abundance of strawberries in market,I just could not keep my hands off from making a strawberry cheese cake,even after I tried to resist making to an extent.The reason is though a cheese cake tastes really exotic and heavenly,it is kind of heavy for us and I do not have a small spring foam to make a small sized cake.So after making this cheese cake,I thought I will cheese make only after a reasonable time.So even though plump beautiful strawberries were screaming cheese cake,I kept postponing it.But few days back I got request for an egg less cheese cake from not one but three readers of mine,so made one few days back.When I searched net for a recipe,mostly found no bake cheese cake,as I was not going to use gelatin,I wanted a baked version and that's when I found a recipe in a old readers digest.It was a cake with egg and I just substituted condensed milk for eggs.One more thing I like about this cake is its crust.This is a nut based crust instead of regular biscuit crust.The cake turned out really awesome.It is a very rich cake,a small slice goes long way,I made this when we had guests and it was enjoyed thoroughly.
