I'm so excited to guest post this no-bake Lemon Raspberry Rustic Rare Cheesecake recipe over at Jenna Kate at Home.
Spring has finally sprung, and the last thing we want to do in warmer weather is turn on the oven and bake, amirite? But have no fear, you can still have your cake and eat it too.
This lemon raspberry rare cheesecake is just what you're looking for: light, silky, and not too sweet, and you don't need your oven to make it. Its flavors and colors are perfect for spring and Easter.
Statistics say that citrus reduces stress hormone levels, and lemon is the most powerful of the citrus smells; smelling it can increase mental stimulation.
Combine it with a cake, and you have the ultimate antidepressant!
If you haven't heard of rare cheesecake before, I talk about it in this rare cheesecake recipe I made for Valentine's Day. It was my first rare cake, and I was a bit intimidated, but it turned out great and easy to make.
Even making two layers for this cake was not complicated.
Rustic Lemon Raspberry Rare Cheesecake for Easter
Lemon and raspberry are my favorite fruit flavor combination. You can decorate the cake any way you want, but I liked the glassy look of candied lemons.
If you'd like the recipe, you'll need to visit Jenna. I'm guest-posting the details on her wonderful blog.
I'm thinking of decorating the cake differently this Easter for granddaughters. Any ideas?
I'd love to see if you make and decorate this cake! Share your photos on Instagram or Facebook and tag them #RareCheesecake and #allthatsjas so I can find them!

Looks so good - but what does "rare" mean? I mean, I know what it means, but what does it mean for this recipe? And Thanks for sharing on the What's for Dinner Link up -
Hi, Helen. It is Japanese a version and they call no-bake cheesecake a rare cheesecake. I linked to my other rare cheesecake recipe for explanation. 🙂

It's bad enough that you make these amazing cheesecakes but then you are such a great photographer that you make me want to dive into the photos to grab some of that cake. 😉
Mary, you always know how to make my day! Thank you very much!

My mom made 'cheesecake'. of a sort...
The sort that is cream cheese whipped into Dream Whip & dumped on a cracker base, refrigerated, then ope a can of cherry pie filling and a spoonful on top of the 'cheesecake'. It was sweet.... that's all I'll say for it. I didn't even know that there are baked versions until I was well into my twenties (such a sheltered life). I dare say this rare version would hold up better & taste better than my Mom's icebox cheescake.
My mom didn't know how to bake and she didn't like sweets so she didn't care to learn. So, at least you got icebox cheesecake. I got nothing, lol. 🙁
