Cheesecakes are enjoyed year round. Cheesecake is most commonly made with cream cheese. However, it is also made with different cheeses including ricotta and mascarpone. It is usually baked low and slow in a water bath to create a silky smooth texture. However, quick no-bake cheesecakes are equally luscious and delicious. Rich and dense New York style cheesecake is the most popular variety. It is made with cream cheese and sour cream for a sweet yet tangy flavor. Basque cheesecake is the most sought after cheesecake recipe on this site. It is often called “burnt” cheesecake due to its iconic rich dark surface.
