I was really really craving for cheesecake buttt it was a long weekend so I should provide a big pan for my family that came over. Seeing the amount I should bake, bought the pricey cream cheese was not an option for me. And here it is: a tricky recipe that spent only half of the budget of  the usual cheese cake!
This recipe is popular among the online Indonesian cooking community as a cheap and low budget cheesecake without cream cheese. It use processed cheddar cheese, the easiest to be found here with affordable price. Of course, you cannot expect it will taste similarly as the usual cheesecake, but with a tablespoon of lemon juice and shreds of lemon zest, you can find the enjoyable flavor of creamy cheesecake! I also add a pack of agar pack to make it more solid.
