Newyork style Vanilla Cheesecake

The much awaited Newyork style Vanilla Cheesecake recipe is here. Many of you have been asking me to share the cheesecake recipe. So, that is finally here. This is the last recipe of the year that I am going to publish. So, wanted to make this a special one. Hence, I chose cheesecake. Cheesecakes are the best. But, all the cheesecakes cannot be the best. Cheesecakes are one of the complicated desserts and many of the bakers find it very hard to bake a perfect cheesecake. I read somewhere that if a baker can bake a perfect cheesecake, then everything else is cake walk for him/her.

In this blog, I have shared New York style cheesecake which has creamy smooth texture to it. Cheesecake was first made in Greece. But, the York Style cheesecake which is also called American cheesecake was accidentally invented by William Lawrence. Why I mentioned accidentally is that, he wanted to recreate Neufchatel which is a soft French Cheese. But, it turned out to be cheesecake!

Cheesecake factory makes around $11 million per year. Just in case you didn’t know, there are other styles of cheesecakes as well. Asian, Australian, Dutch, Asian are some of the popular ones. Amongst all the styles, New York style cheesecake is the most popular one and the best cheesecake is also made in New York. So, when you visit New York, you know what shouldn’t be missed! If you have no plans of visiting New York in the near future, then this Vanilla Cheesecake recipe is for you. If you can’t go to New York, Bring New York here. So make this and Enjoy!!

  1. Making cheese of paneer is really interesting… wondering if I can use store bought paneer for the same purpose. The cheesecake looks absolutely well done and super delicious… I thought I was the only one who had a problem with getting the biscuit base of the cheesecake cleanly out… hehe… what a torture that can be! 🙂

  2. That’s a beautiful cheesecake, thanks for sharing the cream cheese and sour cream recipes. It’s hard to get large quantities of them where I live. Loved all your recipes and the presentation.
