Easy Cheesecake Recipe Reviewed

A Cheesecake Recipe for Success!

My family loves cheesecake, therefore, it is probably the most frequently baked dessert in my kitchen.  I bake several each month and most recently baked a cheesecake instead of a birthday cake for my mother's birthday. 

This easy cheesecake is most often what I make for dessert when we are entertaining.  I can either make it the day before, or the morning of an event.  It seems everyone loves cheesecake!

The only drawback is that it does take about 2 hours to make, bake & cool.  Plus, it needs to set in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. 

While it is very easy, it does take time.  However, it is worth the wait!

  1. Ms. Mouse, I made a very similar, creamy New York style cheesecake for many years and now make a slightly different version that substitutes a low-glycemic sugar alternative for the cane sugar and low carb cookie crumbs for the graham crackers.

    It’s one of our favorite desserts, too! I love serving it with fresh berries and/or a raspberry coulis, but it’s equally delicious unadorned. Thank you for sharing this tried-and-true gem of a family favorite recipe!

  2. Yum, indeed. Looks absolutely delicious. I definitely will give your recipe a try, admitting I have never actually baked a cheesecake myself. Usually buy them ready-made, but your homemade recipe is very tempting and I'm sure is much better than any store-bought one.

  3. Thank you for this lovely and easy recipe, it will go well with the water bath that I have saved for future reference. We love cheesecake too and I'm sure even I could pull this one off! Thanks for making my life a little easier!

  4. What nice easy recipe for cheesecake. Fran just loves a good cheesecake, I agree they do take some time but the wait is well worth it. I'll certainly be giving your recipe a try. Thanks.

  5. A delicious easy recipe! We love cheese cake too and of course always cook it in a bath of water too - I'll save this recipe, thanks

  6. Ms. Mouse... Years ago I tried to learn how to make cheesecake. I did okay but not great. And my BFF's brother was making some fantastic cheesecakes. Lately I've been craving some and have thought about trying to bake some again. Thank you for this recipe and tips!
