Lemon Raspberry Rare Cheesecake for Easter

Rustic Easter lemon raspberry rare cheesecake

I’m so excited to guest post this Lemon Raspberry Rustic Rare Cheesecake for Easter recipe over at Wife in Progress.

Lemon Raspberry Rare Cheesecake for Easter

Spring has finally sprung and the last thing we want to do in warmer weather is to 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, 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 levels of the stress hormone and lemon is the most powerful of the citrus smells. It’s been shown that smelling it can increase mental stimulation. Combine it with a cake and you have the ultimate antidepressant, ha!


If you’re 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 it was actually easy to make. Even making two layers for this cake was not complicated.

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 of Wife in Progress. I’m guest posting the details on her wonderful blog.

I’m thinking of decorating the cake differently this Easter for granddaughters. Any ideas?

    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. πŸ™‚

    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. πŸ˜‰

    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. πŸ™
