Everyone has a love affair with cheesecake. At least anyone I know! Including myself of course 😉 This is why I thought I’d share with you all this super easy to make and delicious cheesecake recipe. About a year ago I found this amazingly fluffy, fresh tasting and delicious cheesecake recipe on http://www.allrecipes.com. Yes you read well…Fresh and delicious AND so easy to make, you’ll want to make this over and over again. It definitely has become one of the staples in my kitchen. I have not found one person yet who doesn’t absolutely love this cake.
After making this a couple of times for different occasions, I changed the recipe a bit, to fit my and my family’s taste. If you want the original recipe you can find it here https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/8350/chantals-new-york-cheesecake/.
The few things I changed/added:
- I use 2 packs of 8 oz of Philadelphia cream cheese instead of 4. And I add one pack (10-12oz) of mascarpone cheese.
- I almost always decorate it with freshly whipped cream and berries. It seems like this is everyone’s favorite mix.
- I add one spoon of vanilla sugar in the mix for a more vibrant vanilla taste.
- Sometimes I sprinkle confectioner sugar powder or vanilla sugar powder at the end to jazz up the presentation 🙂
Remember that even with 2 packs of cream cheese and 1 mascarpone, you’ll get a pretty big quantity of cake to bake. So I always have 2 baking trays ready: a big one for the main cake and I always bake a smaller one just to give away, or to have as an extra.
