Here is an easy cheesecake recipe you can use when you are craving that baked authentic rich creamy goodness but don't have all of the time in the world to spare. (But you do need your oven for a little over an hour.)
This easy cheesecake will be great to serve after a Sunday dinner with your family.
Adding the strawberries and whipped cream will get their attention as it looks fancy, special, and appealing.
If strawberries aren't your family's favorite, you could always use a different fruit or just use chocolate sauce drizzled over the top of each piece with a dollop of whipped cream.
It will surely please all the cheesecake lovers in your family.
Although the recipe calls for white sugar, if you want to use something more organic, you can still use raw sugar.
If it seems coarser than white sugar, just run it through the blender for a few seconds.
For the Cake Filling
8 oz cream cheese
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1/8 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
2 egg yolks
For the Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl combine your graham cracker crumbs, melted butter and sugar then press the mixture firmly into the bottom of a lined 10 inch spring form pan.
Mix your eggs and yolks and softened cream cheese in a large bowl until the mixture is completely lump free, then add your sugar, heavy cream and flour. Continue incorporating until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Pour the entire batter into the spring form pan and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 200 degree and bake for an additional hour.
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and when cooled completely, decorate with fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream.
