10 Most Delicious Cheesecake Recipes ...

By Bevs

I’ve been making sumptious cheesecake for many Christmases now – usually as gifts for friends and friends of family. I have not yet tasted a cheesecake that is yummier than mine – or so I would like to believe (haha!). But this past week while doing my research for the most delicious cheesecake recipes, I have met some of the most yummy-looking, mouth-watering cheesecakes! Makes me want to try out all these 10 recipes and start experimenting again!

1 Simply Sinful Cheesecake

This one’s mine and no… this is not a case of love-your-own recipe. You can easily make this cheesecake recipe and people will think that you’ve spent the whole day slaving inside the kitchen. I’m a purist at heart, which explains the super basic recipe. Stripped to its barest, the most divine cheesecake can be made with just eggs, sugar and cream cheese. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

• 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
• 1/2 cup butter, melted
• 1/4 cup sugar
• 2 (8-oz.) bars cream cheese
• 1 can condensed milk
• 3 eggs
• 2 tsps. Lemon juice or in my case, calamansi juice

Directions:

• Preheat oven to 150ºC
• Combine crumbs, butter and sugar
• Press firmly to make bed on a 9-inch springform pan
• Refrigerate for 10 minutes
• Bake for 10 minutes then set aside
• With a mixer, beat cream cheese with electric beater until fluffy
• Gradually add in condensed milk while beating until smooth
• Add eggs and lemon juice
• Mix well making sure to scrape out the bottom.
• Pour into pan.
• Bake for about 50 to 55 minutes – until perimeter is set but the center part is still slightly jiggly.

This recipe will keep in the fridge for two weeks, though I doubt it would last long. Yummy recipe shared by: Bevs

4 Toblerone Cheesecake

I love Toblerone, but with cheesecake? Absolutely! I was a little bit disappointed when I saw that this recipe only needed 100g of Toblerone? Just 100g? Oh well. Maybe it’s enough. And there’s still the chocolate shaving, I guess I can go all out with my topping. I can’t wait to try this one out!

• Refrigerate cheesecake base while you prepare the cheesecake filling
• Beat (with an electric mixer, if possible) the cream cheese until it is soft and free from lumps
• In a separate small bowl, dissolve the gelatin in boiling water
• Allow to cool slightly
• Add dissolved gelatin to cream cheese
• Mix well
• Add caster sugar, Toblerone and the half cup of cream to the cheese mixture
• Continue mixing (with electric mixer, if possible) until all ingredients are well combined and smooth
• Pour the cream cheese mixture into the chilled chocolate biscuit base
• Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to allow cheesecake to set (but refrigerating overnight is best)

9 The Ultimate Cheesecake

This one is by Tyler Florence – remember him from Food 911? He’s cute and his cheesecake looks just as adorable… and yummy. This may not be for the novice baker – but someone who has baking experience will find this recipe extremely delicious.
The Ultimate CheesecakeIngredients:

Crust...

• 2 cups finely ground graham crackers (about 30 squares)
• 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

** Filling...**

• 1 pound cream cheese, 2 (8-ounce) blocks, softened
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 pint sour cream
• 1 lemon, zested
• 1 dash vanilla extract

Warm Lemon Blueberry Topping...

• 1 pint blueberries
• 1 lemon, zested and juiced
• 2 tablespoons sugar

Directions:

• Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F
• In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients with a fork until evenly moistened
• Lightly coat the bottom and sides of an 8-inch springform pan with non-stick cooking spray
• Pour the crumbs into the pan and, using the bottom of a measuring cup or the smooth bottom of a glass
• Press the crumbs down into the base and 1-inch up the sides
• Refrigerate for 5 minutes

Directions for the Filling...

• In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese on low speed for 1 minute until smooth and free of any lumps
• Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and continue to beat slowly until combined
• Gradually add sugar and beat until creamy, for 1 to 2 minutes
• Add sour cream, lemon zest, and vanilla
• Periodically scrape down the sides of the bowl and the beaters. The batter should be well-mixed but not overbeaten
• Pour the filling into the crust-lined pan and smooth the top with a spatula
• Set the cheesecake pan on a large piece of aluminum foil and fold up the sides around it
• Place the cake pan in a large roasting pan
• Pour boiling water into the roasting pan until the water is about halfway up the sides of the cheesecake pan; the foil will keep the water from seeping into the cheesecake
• Bake for 45 minutes. The cheesecake should still jiggle (it will firm up after chilling), so be careful not to overcook
• Let cool in pan for 30 minutes
• Chill in the refrigerator, loosely covered, for at least 4 hours
• Loosen the cheesecake from the sides of the pan by running a thin metal spatula around the inside rim
• Unmold and transfer to a cake plate
• Using a spatula spread a layer of Warm Lemon Blueberry topping over the surface
• Slice the cheesecake with a thin, non-serrated knife that has been dipped in hot water, wipe dry after each cut

Directions for the Topping...

• In a small saucepan add all the ingredients
• Simmer over medium heat for 5 minutes or so until the fruit begins to break down slightly
• Leave to cool before spreading on cheesecake
