Cheesecakes for Mother’s Day

Sharing is caring!

Do you want to bake a cheesecake for Mother’s Day? How about trying one of my favorite cheesecake recipes, they are all incredibly delicious!

Mother’s Day Cheesecake Ideas

With Mother’s Day coming up on Sunday, I thought about gathering a few recipe ideas for cheesecakes you could make your mother happy with on Mother’s Day.

They are easily made cheesecakes, mostly spring or summer-orientated cakes, full of fruits and berries. Light cakes, always fruity, made with yogurt, cream cheese, or quark, often no-bake cheesecakes, sweet yet refreshing.
Check out these cheesecake recipes; you will find something you like for sure. 🙂
And if you would like to cook some more for your mother, look at these easy Mother’s Day recipes.

What to bake for Mother’s Day?

I started this post quite a few years ago with just a few recipes. Recipes I love baking for any occasion, actually, but particularly for Mother’s Day.

Everybody knows what a cheesecake is, but everyone has their favorite kind. Some love a classic one, like New York’s Cheesecake, which is baked and so incredibly creamy! One of my favorite recipes; I can’t believe I haven’t posted a recipe yet.

But try this amazing Chocolate Cheesecake, these Cherry Cream Cheese Bars, or the German Cheesecake, a traditional cake made with quark. And my absolute favorite is the Crustless Cheesecake, which only needs about 15 minutes of your attention and then baking.

And others prefer a no-bake cheesecake; they are super creamy to make, refreshing, and stunning looking! Not to mention, that they are so much easier to make than their baked counterparts. My favorite ones are the Strawberry Yogurt Cheesecake and the No-Bake Lemon Curd one.

  1. Strawberry Yogurt Cheesecake

This is one of the cakes I baked the most in my life, always in spring or early summer when the strawberries are juicy and ripe. It is the perfect Mother’s Day cheesecake: incredibly delicious, light, and beautiful!

2. No-Bake Bailey’s Cheesecake

You will probably like this boozy dessert so much that you will keep making it! Again and again! I know I do; I love the creaminess, the flavor, and the simplicity of the recipe… Anything about it, actually.

3. Creamy Apricot Cheesecake – No-Bake

4. No-Bake Lemon Curd Cheesecake

This no-bake lemon curd cheesecake with blueberries might be the quickest, most straightforward cheesecake I have ever made. The main reason for that is the use of canned ingredients, ingredients I already had in the fridge/pantry, like homemade lemon curd and blueberry pie filling.

5. Crustless Cheesecake

This crustless cheesecake is one of my favorite cakes ever! I love cheesecakes of any kind, I’ve made tons of cheesecakes over the years, and there was rarely one I didn’t like. But this crustless cheesecake stands out: just thinking and writing about it makes me get up and start baking it again.

The famous German cheesecake or Käsekuchen is a traditional quark cheesecake that can be served with or without the meringue topping. I prefer it with the topping; it makes everything complete.

This Raffaello cake is a dream of a cake! I’ve always had a weakness for Raffaello. I am not much into chocolate, candy, or any bars, etc., but when it comes to Raffaello, I cannot resist them. So, I had to make a cake…

More perfect Mother’s Day treats:

Surprise your mum with a sweet little present! You could make these Champagne Truffles or these Homemade Raffaello Coconut Balls if loves coconut.

How about some mini tarts? Try some incredibly pretty Mini Fruit Tarts, the Blueberry Tarts with meringue, or these Raspberry Tartlets with white chocolate, which are basically to die for!!! Your mother or mother-in-law (in my case) will definitely be impressed.

You can keep things simple yet super delicious if you decide to make a roll cake or Swiss roll. You could try one of my favorite recipes, either the Strawberry Swiss Roll or the Raspberry Roulade.

And even faster and easier is to bake something with puff pastry. Try this flavorful and pink Berry Puff Pastry Cake, some Croissants with Jam or Chocolate Filling, mini Apple Pies or Apple Rolls, or the simplest Cinnamon Rolls you could possibly make.

Or make a simple dessert to serve after lunch or dinner. How about Strawberries and Cream with Meringue or a Strawberry Mascarpone Dessert? They would both be perfect for the season.

I wish you all a super Happy Mother’s Day!
