As the name implies, the recipe for Junior’s famous original cheesecake has been baked the very same way since the 1950s. And for good reason. Surprisingly, this is one of the easiest cakes to make. Just follow this recipe that we have specially adapted for your home kitchen. You’ll soon proudly be slicing up the best cheesecake you’ve ever tasted!
My all-time favourite dessert is cheesecake, just plain and simple cheesecake! I won’t turn down a multi-flavoured, multi-loaded up cheesecake, but I think a plain, tall and creamy cheesecake is the best. This recipe for Tall and Creamy New York Cheesecake is by far my favourite!
This is an incredible cheesecake recipe, tall, creamy and smooth. I made this recipe without a crust, but if you prefer a simple graham crust will work great. I love my cheesecake plain but if you like serve it with berries and whipped cream, caramel or even chocolate sauce. One very important thing when making cheesecake is to have all the ingredients at room temperature or you will have lumps in your cheesecake!! Also be sure to use a 10 inch springform pan. This cake rising quite a bit while baking and will spill over in a small cake pan.
