In this “character recipe” you will learn how to make a Winnie-the-Pooh Baked Cheese Cake using a food processor. This menu item is very easy to make and is so delicious!



20cm diameter circular pie pan


☆Pie shell

Crackers (RITZ) 80g

Melted butter (unsalted) 40g


☆Cheese cake filling

Cream cheese 250g

Granulated sugar 100g

Salt – moderate amount

Sour cream 180g

Vanilla beans – one pod

One egg

One Egg yolk

Lemon juice – one tablespoon

Cake flour – one tablespoon


2:Put the crackers into a food processor and grind them up. Then, put butter into the processor and mix the ingredients together.


3:Cover a potato masher with a food wrap and put the ingredients in step 2 inside the pie pan. Press until the shell is firm.

☆It is recommended to use a “drop out bottom” pie pan but you can use a disposable paper pie pan if you don’t have one.



①Mix cream cheese

②Mix granulated sugar and salt into ① after it gets creamy

③Pour in the sour cream and mix it in with the ingredients.

④Add the vanilla beans and mix it together with the ingredients.

⑤Add the egg and egg yolk and mix them together with the ingredients.

⑥Add the lemon juice and cake flour and mix them together with the ingredients.

Pour in the cream cheese mixture into the pie pan mentioned in step 3.

Bake in a preheated oven (160℃) for 50 minutes to an hour. Cool the cheese cake and remove the paper at the bottom carefully.

☆Make adjustments in the baking time depending on the oven that you are using.

☆This time, I didn’t want the cheese cake to look brown so I placed some aluminum foil on the top of the cake after baking for 20 minutes.


5:Cool the cheese cake in the refrigerator and decorate it.

☆I used a store-bought cheese cake to make the ears and hands of Winnie-the-Pooh.

Decorate the cake with your favorite fruit! The cake is delicious even without decorations, of course!


6:Use a circle cutout as shown in the photo below to make the ears and hands. I bought the cutouts at Seria (a 100-yen shop).


Draw the face using a chocolate pen and….voila, your Winnie-the-Pooh Baked Cheese Cake is now complete!
