Come and take a bite from this blissful Baked Cheesecake, and indulge and savor the rich, creamy sweet taste of heaven.
Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest, layer consists of a mixture of soft, fresh 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.
Is cheesecake better baked or not baked?
The key difference between baked and no-bake cheesecakes is that baked cheese has a superior texture. Baked cheesecakes have a dense, fluffy, moist, and smooth texture, which is not possible with a no-bake cheesecake recipe.Print

Does cheesecake have to be baked in a water bath?
By all means, feel free to make your cheesecake without a traditional water bath. The traditional water bath provides two elements: a steamy, humid oven environment that prevents your cheesecake from drying out on top and insulation for protecting the cheesecake from drastic temperature changes.
How do you tell if baked cheesecake is done?
The secret to testing a cheesecake for doneness: Wearing oven mitts, give the pan a gentle shake. If the cheesecake looks nearly set and only a small circle in the center jiggles slightly, it’s done, and ready to be removed from the oven.
