This quick and easy cheesecake recipe has good childhood memories. When I was a little boy I used to think cheesecake was made with real cheese by people who sounded like Germans. I also thought that you had to hide cheesecake away so that mice could not get to it because the cake looked like the cheese slices you see in cartoons.
I remember it like it was yesterday. My mom and dad sitting in our favourite restaurant and ordering a slice of cheesecake for dessert. I as so disappointed when they told me what it was. Clearly, that can not be cheesecake, I never ate cheesecake until I got married to a chef, many years later.
But, after eating it for the first time, I was addicted to the taste. Everything I thought I knew about cheesecake was wrong and clearly forgotten. My wife, the chef, made all the wrongs, right.
Over 4,000 years ago in the fifth century BC, the ancient Greeks on the island of Samos created the earliest known cheesecake. This rudimentary cheesecake was made with patties of fresh cheese that were then pounded smooth with flour and honey.
Not far from wrong, the earliest cheesecakes were made with real cheese. At least this cheesecake recipe is on the right track. There are quite a few popular variations of the original cheesecake recipe. This cheesecake recipe I am sharing with you now, then there is the famous New York Cheesecake, and also a popular one, the cinnamon cheesecake.
I am not going to go into details about every variation but can tell you that I shared this plain cheesecake recipe with you because in my opinion, it is the most popular. The visitor stats prove it.
If you enjoy cheesecakes then you might also like our pumpkin cheesecake recipe. It is very popular and simply delicious.
We hope you enjoy this cheesecake recipe and invite you to share your thoughts and tell us what you think of this cheesecake recipe.
