Mini Cheesecake

I've had this little song stuck in my head for a really long time and figured the best way to get it out was to share it with you. I know it's cheesy but here it is...

Grace the Baker!
Can she bake it?
Grace the Baker!
Yes she Can!

For those of you who don't know, it goes along with the "Bob the Builder" theme song.  That used to be one of my favorite shows when I was little! Alright now that the song is out of my head let's bake!
The Ingredients

Got Milk?

If you're going to crack the egg one-handed, make sure not to drop the eggshells....or you could just edit it out. =)

A teaspoon of VANILLA will make it all better,
not sugar Mary Poppins. (facepalm)
I am going to make a strawberry cupcake, for better or for worse!

I love all of my creations!

The new phenomenona - Cupcake Glasses!
Going once, going twice, eh... they've gone extinct.

Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook - "Cheesecake Supreme."

1 box of Nilla wafers (11oz.)
48 cupcake liners
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 8-oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup of sugar
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 egg yolk

1 container of strawberry or raspberry yogurt (optional)
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips (optional)

1. In a large mixing bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, flour, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer till fluffy. Add eggs and yolk all at once, beating on low speed till just combined. Stir in milk.
2. (Optional) In a separate bowl pour desired amount of batter into bowl. Add your desired ingredient (yogurt, chocolate chips, Oreo crumbs etc.) and mix in. Pour into cupcake liner and bake.
3. Place batter in cupcake tins, filling almost to the top. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until tops are golden. Garnish with fruit, or chocolate syrup.

There are lots of easier versions of this recipe, but I just found my favorite cheesecake recipe and modified it a bit, so I guess that means this is my first adaptation! In the past I've tried modifying recipes a bit, but they didn't really turn out very well... like my cinnamon eggs. But thankfully the changes and additions I made this time around worked out deliciously. You see, anything I make I eat, whether it tastes good or not. 

GB2- God Bless, Go Bake!!! 


  1. These look wonderful! I've done a similar thing with Key Lime pie filling for big parties and they are always a hit...

    PS - I love your site and will be back soon to take a better look around.


  2. I love anything in muffin cups. These are perfectly sized and scrumptious, I'm sure ... Never met a cheesecake that I didn't like :-)

  3. really cool idea on the mini cheesecake to use nilla wafers. i love cheesecake. :)
