Cheesecakes: Happiness in every slice!


Cheesecake is at the top of many people’s favorite dessert list because of its velvety texture with a slightly tangy but mostly sweet flavor. They are like little slices of happiness on a plate. 

Cheesecakes usually have one or more layers, and the mail layer consists of a mixture of fresh cheese (typically cottage cheese or cream cheese), eggs and sugar. If there is a bottom layer, it most often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies, graham crackers, pastry, or sometimes sponge cake. Cheesecake may be baked or unbaked (refrigerated). Vanilla, spices, lemon, chocolate, pumpkin, or other flavors may be added to the main cheese layer. 

People have been eating cheesecakes for over four thousand years!  The first cheesecakes are thought to have been made in Ancient Greece and the ingredients were wheat flour, pounded cheese and honey.  The oldest written cheesecake recipe is credited to the writer Athenaeus and dates back to 230 AD. These cheesecakes were very different from what we know and love today!  Small cheesecakes were served to athletes during the first Olympic games held in 776 B.C. 

There are different types of cheesecake such as New York style cheesecake, classic cheesecake, no bake cheesecake, Chicago cheesecake, Philadelphia style cheesecake, Ricotta cheesecake (or Roman cheesecake), cotton cheesecake (or soufflé cheesecake), vegan cheesecake, Basque cheesecake (originating in Spain), Sernik (originating in Poland),  Käsekuchen (originating in Germany) etc.  Some popular flavors of cheesecakes are chocolate, pumpkin, strawberry, white chocolate raspberry, blueberry, oreo, mango, lemon, peanut butter, red velvet etc.


Here are some most popular cheesecakes:

Traditional or classic cheesecake

A traditional cheesecake is made of cream cheese, biscuits, caster sugar, eggs, vanilla essence, lemon juice, butter. Many kinds of flavors can be added to the top layer to make the cake more palatable. 

Chocolate cheesecake

Chocolate cheesecake is the perfect dessert for chocolate lovers because it adds melted sweet chocolate right into the cheesecake filling. It’s rich, creamy, and chocolatey, all dolloped on top of a crunchy cookie crust.

Strawberry cheesecake

This type of cheesecake takes a regular New York-style cheesecake and tops it off with a dollop of fresh strawberry sauce. The cracker crust gives it a classic feel.

No-Bake cheesecake

No-bake cheesecake uses less cheese and heavy cream whipped into stiff peaks to create a fluffy, almost mousse-like filling that’s simply irresistible and requires absolutely no baking time at all.


Cheesecakes around the world:

New York style cheesecake

New York-style cheesecake is different from other cheesecakes mainly because of its heavy and dense texture that feels extremely smooth and rich. Its flavor should be sweet and tangy, not citrusy, chewy, or starchy. It is believed that the first New York-style cheesecake was made by Junior’s in the 1950s. New York–style cheesecake uses a cream cheese base with sour cream and a graham cracker crust.

German-style cheesecake is a traditional dessert consisting of a thin layer of crust pastry that is topped with a creamy combination of quark cheese, eggs, and various fruits. Even though käsekuchen is often compared to the classic American cheesecake, the use of slightly acidic quark cheese results in a light, scrumptious treat that perfectly combines sweet and sour flavors.


Soufflé cheesecake, also known as cotton cheesecake, is made by incorporating whisked egg whites into the cake mixture (eggs, milk, sugar, cream cheese), and the combination is then baked in a bain-marie. The Japanese cheesecake is fluffier and sponge-like than regular cheesecake, and it’s sometimes eaten cold, but most people prefer to eat it straight out of the oven while it’s still hot, so it almost melts in the mouth. 

Basque cheesecake

Known simply as tarta de queso or gazta tarta in its native Basque, this simple yet incredibly creamy cheesecake variation is a decades-old local special dessert.  The recipe is a simple combination of classic cheesecake ingredients such as sugar, heavy cream, eggs, and cream cheese, but unlike its more popular counterparts, this Basque version does not have any crust. Instead, it is baked on a high temperature which leaves the outside firm, darker, and somewhat burnt, while the center remains gooey. 


Sernik is a cheesecake from Poland which is made with eggs, sugar, and twaróg – a type of curd cheese that has been used in desserts for hundreds of years. It is believed that sernik originated in the 17th century, when King Jan III Sobieski brought the recipe with him after his victory against the Turks at the Battle of Vienna. Today, there are many varieties of sernik but it is usually made on a layer of crumbly cake. Oftentimes raisins, chocolate sauce, or fruits are also added to sernik, and one of the most popular varieties of the dessert has a sponge cake as its base and is covered with jelly and fruit on top.
