My husband was thrilled when we had a chance to review
another item from the James Martin Bakery collection, mainly because he is
cheesecake mad! He loves it, I think
given half a chance he would try and sustain himself on that alone… I am not such a fan of cheesecake but I was
still interested to see how it turned out and as I have a sweet tooth am always
willing to give anything a try at least once!
Especially when it’s the end of the week and the household treats are
have had nothing but positive experiences of James Martin mixes so far; you can
see the review for the other cake mixes again here, so we did have high
hopes. We were not disappointed
thankfully. You do need to add a couple
of ingredients, semi skimmed milk and butter which we already had in and 300g
of soft cheese (we bought two tubs of Philadelphia for £2), so at most this
cheesecake costs £5 (including the mix price with an RRP of £1.99).
hubbie has given it a huge accolade by saying he thought it was nicer than the
English Cheesecake Company one I bought him, which set me back LOADS, I am not
sure if I am pleased that this cheesecake is so damn appetizing on a budget or
gutted I spent loads on the other one when I obviously did not need too…
liked that a baking tray is included so minimum mess and fuss. The instructions were clear to follow. The boys and hubbie have made light work of
the cheesecake (even with it being a decent size) and all commented on how nice it tasted. I even found it pleasant enough but perhaps
slightly too tart for me, although hubbie kept complaining as I was more than
happy to hog the delicious biscuit crumb base!
