Let’s Review the July Baking Challenge

July 2019 Sally’s Baking Challenge Recipe: No-Bake Cheesecake Jars

We celebrated the *30th Sally’s Baking Challenge* this past month! Hundreds of you joined the celebration by making your beautifully creative no-bake cheesecake jars. I’ve never been more impressed! There were lemon meringue cheesecake jars, peanut butter Oreo, peaches ‘n’ cream, chocolate cherry, caramel apple, and so many more. How special that we can experience fun new desserts and baking techniques together each month.

One of my favorite recipe reviews came from reader Jennifer:

“These were so much fun to make! I went with no-bake banana cream pudding cheesecake jars and my sons LOVED them! Thank you for supporting exploration and confidence in baking. Your tips make all the difference!”

We gathered as many no-bake cheesecake jars photo entries as we could and included them below.

Reader Questions and Reviews

  1. Laughing so hard right now……when I saw the first photo I turned my head to the side because I thought it was a mistake and the photo had been rotated!!!
    Definitely intrigued to make this cake…..I can hardly wait for the next post to see how you do it!

  2. Wow! There are some great looking cheesecake jars! I have been so busy I have not had time to even think about doing a challenge! 🙁 But busy is good. I will be able to join the challenge in the fall or winter months. I am looking forward to it!

  3. Did you say cake?? !! This looks like another great challenge, can’t wait to give it a go!

  4. I was looking at the first set of pictures and I said oh my gosh out loud because the second one was mine! I feel like I’m famous! This was my first challenge ever, my family loved them! My dad loved the slight lemon flavor because we are all lemon-a-holics. Congratulations to the winners of the challenge and I look forward to the next one!! Thank you Sally!

  5. Wow Sally! That cake is amazing! Although, I hope there are different flavor options because the pictured one I’m guessing is Lemon Blueberry. I’m not a fan of lemons 🙂 But, I’m very eager to enter this challenge! Looks fun!

  6. The cake looks amazing! I can’t wait to bake it for your challenge. This will be my first challenge to enter and I’m eager to get the recipe. 🙂

  7. Thank you Sally for challenging us! This was such a fun challenge!! I made the blueberry version for my dad’s birthday

  8. The video was so helpful – made this cake not as complicated to put together as it seemed! Love making swiss rolls so was excited to see a challenge that involved the same concepts 🙂 One question: I always find my swiss rolls turn out a little too dry. Any tips on how to make the cake more moist?

    1. Hi Beth! Make sure you’re not over-baking the sponge. It’s so common with sponge cakes, then they end up tasting dry. Err on the side of under-baking. Follow the recipe time closely.
