Cheesecake

Not a cake made from cheese unfortunately! Cheesecake is popular all around the world & each country has it’s own variations..all very lovely!!!

Almost all modern cheesecakes in the United States and Canada use cream cheese; in Italy, cheesecakes use ricotta; Germany and Poland use quark. Cheesecakes are most easily baked in a leak-proof springform pan, often paired with a water bath to more evenly distribute the heat.  Because of the high density of most cheesecakes, they continue baking for some time after removal from an oven.

Whether cheesecake should be classified as a cake, a custard, a torte, or something else is a matter of debate.

And here’s Louis Armstrong doing the Cheesecake song…yum yum
