Apologies if this has been requested before but I can't locate a recipe for cheesecake at Mudcat. I need an excellent recipe that you have tried yourself that's guaranteed to impress my workmates. Preferably one that actually tastes like cheese. I'm no Nigella Lawson (though she could whip my topping anytime she wants) but I'm fairly adept in the kitchen. Anyone?

May I suggest you try www.epicurious.com? I have never had a bad recipe from that site, and most of them are gourmet-level recipes. Just type "cheesecake" in the search box. Also, below the recipes themselves are responses from people who tried them, which is a bonus.

Good luck! Just remember that when the cheesecake has cooked the right number of minutes, it should not appear done. Turn the oven off and leave the cheesecake in the oven for an hour with the door closed. Then let the cake cool completely before removing it from the pan and putting it in the refrigerator. It's better next day, by the way.

My favorite cheesecake is a New York style one. It's baked, and the texture is dryer than what most people are used to. I'm not fond of the heavy, sweet, sticky ones. Oh, alright, I'm fond of them. Never met a cheesecake I didn't love. But the NY style ones, I LOVE. I haven't had one in ages, but I've got a recipe though. I haven't made it because I'd eat the whole thing. (Bat Goddess gave me a cheesecake recipe book last Christmas. Let me know if you want any other cheesecake recipies or recipies for toppings or crusts.

You might have to translate some of this to English English.


New York Style Cheesecake

Ingredients:
2 lbs cream cheese
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teraspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 400°F/200°C
2. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar until smooth and light
3. Beat in eggs, vanilla and cornstarch - only until thoroughly mixed
4. Stir in the sour cream until mixture is well blended
5. Pour into prepared crust & bake for 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool in the oven, with the door propped open slightly, for 3 hours. Chill.


Basic Crumb Crust

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350°/177°C (if pre-baking the crust)
Put crumbs in a bowl, add butter and sugar, and blend
Press the mixture (even thickness) into the bottom and partly up the sides of a greased 9" baking dish, pie pan, or springform pan.

Chill in refrigerator for 5 - 10 minutes or bake for 10 minutes. Cool before filling

Yes, it can be. Serious cheesecake. There's a recipe in the book for tofu cheesecake, and there are recipies that call for less cream cheese. There's a recipe that calls for 2.5 lbs of cream cheese. I guess they don't screw around in New York!

Here's a lighter one (actually called "Heavy Cheesecake" in the book). My personal opinion is that a lemon should not be allowed within 10 feet of a cheescake, and the cinnamon is just...eeew. I'd eat it anyway, but I'd be offended.

Ingredients:
1 lb cream cheese
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup self-rising flour
1 cup sour cream

1. Preheat oven to 325°F/163°C
2. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and sugar and eggs until smooth and light
3. Add lemon rind, lemon juice and flour & mix
4. Stir in the sour cream just enough to blend
5. Pour into prepared crust & bake for 45 minutes. Allow cake to cool in the oven for 30 additional minutes. Chill.
The book says to serve with whipped cream & sprinkle with cinnamon.

In the 70's I worked in a dinner club in Charleston.,W.VA. as a cook. One of their specialties was their cheesecake. It was heavenly. I used to make 3 each day. While I can't remember the exact recipe, I'll tell you the secret to this light type cheesecake. Along with the requisite cream cheese, we also added cottage cheese. This gave the cake a lighter texture. Any of the basic cheesecakes recipes can be used, but try adding cottage cheese!

They say it's not really a cheesecake OR a pie. It doesn't sound like it would taste much like a cheesecake, but if you like tofu, it sounds pretty good.

They recomment a whole wheat pie crust.

Tofu Pie

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups soft tofu
4 tablespoons dry milk powder [just a guess, but maybe non-dairy creamer would work?]
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
3/4 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg
3/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 450°F
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients for the filling and blend together until smooth.
Pour mixture into prepared crust and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake for 30 minutes more, or until a knife comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving.

And for those of you who are on low-carbohydrate diets, any of these recipes will work fine if you substitute a ground almond/melted butter/Splenda crust, and substitute Splenda, measure for measure, for the sugar(s). If I couldn't have cheesecake on the Atkins diet, I would be miserable.

Yes, it is. And if you are making a chocolate cheesecake, you can make a hazelnut crust the same way, which is to die for, especially if you grind your own hazelnuts, so the flavour is fresh. (I'm not sure, but for those of you who don't know hazelnuts, I think they are also called filberts.)

Again, for Atkins people -- we can't put fruit on our cheesecakes, but there are lots of recipes for ganaches, which work very well and look lovely. I make a chocolate marble ganache to swirl over New York Style and chocolate cheesecakes, and the ganache makes it attractive enough for guests.

One trick I discovered that works well in summer, is to buy one of those cheapie supermarket home brand cheesecakes - usually only come in vanilla - and cut it into small wedges - you may need to let it soften a bit first.

then return it to the deep freeze to harden properly.

When desired, take a single slice, and eat it FROZEN. Yum!

Also this trick works for the Aussie version of what the US call twinkies and those little cake slices with sugar icing on top..

There was a web site about just how indestructible Twinkies were, with lots of wonderful disgusting looking pictures - they did everything to them, burnt them, put them in vacum chambers, added all sorts of destructive chemicals to them.... and they will eventually grow mould and dry out - just takes a while...

Come to think of it "they COULD function as a side dish - depending on what the entree was..."

Wow, Leo, that gives an entirely new spin to cheese cake that I wasn't aware of!

There are places that sell some pretty good cheese cake pre-sliced, with a bit of waxed paper between each, all frozen. Sam's Club in the U.S. has them. I scoot past that case in a hurry, it is awfully tempting. But if you want some really good baked goods (their specialty is fruit cake, but they do some very nice cheese cakes) then visit the Colin Street Bakery. They ship around the world.

Funny, but just this week I have been considering making a quiche, and debating about what I could submerge in the custard. I have some Swiss chard, some bacon, green onions, various types of soy cheese. It will be a sort of faux-spinach quiche Lorraine.

I see the attendant ads have picked up on the theme--they are for "Carboline Diet Products" (something to do with Atkins, it says) and Low Carb Cheesecake.

SRS you will remember my plan to hunt out Cibarius formosa in the forests of BC -- well, they make GREAT quiche filling. I found a recipe called Alsatian Tart that turns out to be what we call Wild Mushroom Flan where I grew up (Alsatian in the UK is a type of dog). Anyway, a few chanterelles mixed with regular button mushrooms makes for a really good savoury pie if you want to give it a go.

Somewhere or other, I read that Cheesecake is America's favorite dessert. Pumpkin Cheesecake has recently become quite popular, probably part an effort to undermine its popularity. For some reason, there is a town in New Jersey called Cheesequake, but it seems to be unrelated.

Worth mentioning that their are both baked and and boiled cheesecakes--the baked is often called "New York Style"--boiled, or refrigerator cheesecake, is made by preparing the liquid ingredients in a double-boiler, as one would a custard(often throwing in some gelatin to just to make sure it firms up in the fridge).

The general rule is whichever way you fix it, folks like it better it the other way.

M. Ted, I remember cheesecake from when I was a kid and it wasn't much like anything I've had recently. It was dryer and less sweet. The surface would sometimes crack a little in the baking and the top was just a bit browned. Jeff Smith (The Frugal Gormet) actually used a propane torch to lightly singe the top. I might have to see if I can make one just for the sake of refreshing the memories.

Pumpkin cheesecake is blasphemous. (There's a recipe in this book.)

Pdc, my eyes glazed over at your pun - it was cheesy.

Yes please, Jeri.

I haven't tried Stevia yet, but have heard good things about it, so will give it a whirl.

Stevia is used in places like Japan in the diet drinks, but the aspartame industry here has lobbied heavily against it, as has probably the sugar industry. I found it in a health food store, and it doesn't take much. I find it a little harder to make disolve in my tea. I haven't used it in a while, I have lazily switched back to the little saccharine tablets. But it is great. And Splenda is found in some soft drinks around here, Diet RC and Diet Rite Cola.

Big Pink, I didn't list mushrooms, but I'm sure when I got to that point I'd have remembered to put some in the quiche. Thanks for the reminder! I can't get the wonderful wild ones you do, I'll have to settle for the little white mushrooms from the grocery store.

I knew Alsatian was a breed of dog, and to bring this closer back to cheese again, a friend of mine had a keeshound, which I'm told meant "cheese hound" in German. Any confirmation on that?

Dog tart could be a little ruff....

"Georgian Tea" from near Russia contains Stevia leaves...

SRS, isn't saccharine bad for you? Splenda acts and tastes like sugar, and according to many sources is perfectly safe. I think saccharine has problems, hasn't it?

Try this one

1/2lb curd cheese
1/4pint double cream
Sultanas pre-soaked in Amaretto or sherry
2oz caster sugar
squeeze of lemon juice

Base
1/2 pack digestive biscuits
4oz butter
2 oz ground almonds

Melt the butter and mix in the digestives and almonds. Press into a cake tin with a removeable base. Leave to cool.

Whip the cream until stiff. Add the remainder of the ingredients. Mix well. Pour into the tin. Leave to set for at least two hours, preferably overnight. CAREFULLY push out of tin. Enjoy!

You can experiment with chocolate digestive base or other alcohol for the sultanas.

Saccharine has been in use commonly for not quite a century. Back when they decided to test it and were cramming lab rats full of it, they were making them sick. That was amounts like 1000x what you would take in a day, and that much of anything will make you sick. I read a study a few years ago that said when large study groups are reviewed (and there are many human studies now) and under normal usage, saccharine shows absolutely no increased risk of cancer or other illnesses. But you have to understand that what they did to those lab rats to set off the alarms was so bizarre that it skewed the results and people panicked.

Jeri, I suspect that the cheesecake you were eating back then was made with cottage cheese or ricotta or was simply old and tired.

I've found that both aspertame and sacherine add t omy water rentention (so nice to be medically classed as both dehydrated and retaining excess water at the same time. - which I have at times)

Spenda doesn't seem to do that. Haven't tried Stevia.
