  • 2.5 tbsp melted unsalted butter

  • 450 g cream cheese

  • 100 ml whipping cream

  • 230 g sour cream

  • 2.5 tbsp wheat flour

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • Preheat your oven to 180˚C (350˚F) and line a 22 cm round tin with parchment paper, ensuring it covers the sides of the pan.
  • Mix 1 tablespoon of sugar with the biscuits until they form a smooth, sand-like texture. Press this mixture firmly into the lined tin to create a solid base. Bake for 10 minutes, then let it cool.
  • In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, a pinch of salt, and sugar. Beat this mixture until well blended and has a dense, foamy texture.
  • Add the heavy cream and continue to beat until fully mixed. Then, incorporate sour cream, flour, a pinch of salt, and vanilla extract. Mix until the batter becomes smooth.
  • Gradually add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Avoid overmixing; the batter should be smooth and soft.
  • Pour the prepared cream cheese mixture over the biscuit layer in the tin.
  • Wrap the tin with aluminum foil and place it in a larger tray filled with boiling water to a depth of about 2 cm.
  • Bake the cheesecake in the preheated oven at 180˚C (350˚F) for approximately 1 hour.
  • Once baked, turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake inside for another hour without opening the oven door.
  • Take out the cheesecake and refrigerate it overnight. The next day, carefully remove the parchment paper and slice the cheesecake using a warm, damp knife for clean cuts. Enjoy your perfectly set New York cheesecake!

  • Ensure all dairy ingredients are at room temperature to avoid lumps and create a smoother batter.
  • Be cautious while mixing, especially after adding eggs; overmixing can lead to a dense or cracked cheesecake.
  • Use the bain-marie (water bath) method for baking by placing the cheesecake pan in a larger pan filled with hot water to regulate temperature and prevent cracks.
  • Avoid over-baking by removing the cheesecake from the oven when the edges are set but the center slightly jiggles. It will set while chilling.
  • Let the cheesecake cool gradually. After baking, allow it to sit in the turned-off oven for an hour before refrigerating overnight to prevent cracks from sudden temperature changes.
  • Chill the cheesecake overnight for flavors to meld and perfect texture.
  • For clean slices, use a warm, damp knife. Wipe the knife between each cut for smooth edges.
  • Experiment with various toppings like fresh berries or sauces to complement the cheesecake’s rich flavor.
  • Store leftover cheesecake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days or freeze it for later consumption.

Au Bain Marie : How to Bake New York Cheesecake

Bake the cheesecake batter by placing the cake pan in a larger baking dish filled with water, ensuring the water reaches a depth of about 2cm. Before placing it in the water bath, cover the cake pan with aluminum foil to prevent water from seeping into the cheesecake. This method acts as a barrier, effectively preventing the cake from being submerged and maintains a moist baking environment, significantly reducing the likelihood of cracks on the cheesecake’s surface.

Bake the cake for approximately 60-70 minutes, but it’s crucial to check its progress around the 60-minute mark. Avoid overbaking, as this can lead to cracks in the cake. Once baked, turn off the oven and allow the cake to cool gradually inside for about 1 hour until it reaches room temperature. This gradual cooling process helps the cake settle and reduces the chances of surface cracks.
