NEW YORK CHEESECAKE WITH A STRAWBERRY TOPPING


 




If your goal is to make a tall, fluffy, and silky New York-style cheesecake then this recipe is the most suitable. This traditional New York cheesecake is simple to create and will produce the best results. 

While the majority of cheesecake recipes demand that the mixture has to be baked in a water bath or pan, the procedure is such a mess! 

After several unsuccessful attempts, I eventually succeeded in baking a New York Cheesecake without using a water bath. To ensure the cheesecake is baked gently and uniformly, it is baked at a high temperature for a brief ten minutes, then lowered progressively over the duration of the remainder of the baking period.


TO MAKE THIS DELIGHTFUL CHEESECAKE, YOU WILL NEED THE FOLLOWING

INGREDIENTS:


– crushed Graham crackers. 

– 1/4 C.Of butter. 

– 2 Tbsp.Of sugar.


TO make the crust, Only blend crushed graham crackers with butter and sugar, dump into a springform tray, pat out and cover the bottom of a springform pan.


FOR THE FILLING, I USED:


– 5 medium boxes.Of 8-oz.Of cream cheese, at room temp.

– 1 C.Of sugar. 

– 3 large eggs. 

– 2 tsp.Of lemon zest. 

– 1 tsp.Of vanilla extract.

– 3 Tbsp.Of all-purpose flour. 

– 1/2 C.Of sour cream. 


HOW TO MAKE IT :


Step 1- Cream together the cream cheese to reach two minutes of beating consistency. 


Step 2- Then, add in sugar, blend, and add flour. 


Step 3- Next, incorporate eggs, one by one, and mix until mixed. Scrub bowl sides and mix again until combined. 


Step 4- Then, add the lemon zest, vanilla, sour cream and combine them until well incorporated. 


Step 5- When oven temperature is reached 400 degrees, gently dump the batter over the crust and bake for 15 minutes. 


Step 6- After one hour, bake for precisely 200 degrees for a maximum of 60 minutes. Then, turn off the oven. 


Step 7- Remember to set the cake in the oven so leave the door slightly open for about an hour. 


Step 8- After getting it out of the oven, remove the cake from the tray using a knife. 


Step 9- It's better to create a thin coating of flour first before applying further to the pan for quicker removal. 


Step 10- Allow it to cool fully then cover it and put it in the fridge overnight.
