New York Cheesecake

One of my favorite things in this world to eat is cheesecake, and not just any cheesecake. It has to be New York Cheesecake. New York Cheesecake is rich, creamy, smooth, dense and absolutely delicious. This is a recipe that you really need to try.

New York Cheesecake

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of crushed graham crackers
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 32 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature (and use full fat cream cheese, no light products)
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of white sugar
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 4 eggs, mix them together in a small bowl
  • 2 egg yolks

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 300F (150C). Grease a 9 inch (23cm) springform pan.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix the crushed graham crackers with the melted butter. Then press the crumbs evenly onto the bottom of the springform pan. Put the pan into the oven and let the crust bake for 10 minutes. When done take it out of the oven and set it aside to cool down.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese alone until it's smooth. Add in the salt and sugar, and mix together for 1 minute. Then add in the sour cream, vanilla extract, lemon zest and lemon juice, and mix together for another minute. Then add in the eggs and the egg yolks and mix together very well. Pour the cream cheese filling evenly into the prepared crust.
  4. Place the the pan into the oven, and let the cheesecake bake for 45-50 minutes, or until firm and only the center of the cheesecake looks a little wet and soft. Turn off the oven, and let the cake stay in it, and leave the oven door slightly open. Let the cake cool down in the oven for about an hour.
  5. After the hour is up, take the cheesecake out of the oven and put it on a wire rack on the kitchen counter, and carefully run a knife around the inside edge of the springform pan to loosen the cheesecake. This will help prevent the cake from cracking as it cools. Let the cake cool down to room temperature.
  6. When the cake is cool, take it out of the pan and put it on a serving plate, cover it with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator. Let it stay in there for atleast four hours, preferably overnight.

I know that some people like to serve New York Cheesecake with fresh fruit or fruit sauces, but I really love it plain.

A little advice; When baking, no matter if it's cheesecake, cookies or bread etc., there are some really simple baking tips that you should follow that will help make your baking results become more outstanding.
