New York Style Cheesecake

By April 23, 2018Blog

One of the most known cheesecake recipes in the world is the New York Style cheesecake recipe. What makes a New York Style cheesecake official is its rich and dense texture; most people cannot eat more than a small-to-medium slice without regretting it later because it is very fulfilling. Although the recipe is simplistic, New York Style cheesecake enthusiasts are adamant about its superiority.

Cream cheese, heavy cream, eggs, and sometimes egg yolks create the consistency for which New York Style cheesecake is known. “An orchestration of different textures and an exercise in flavor restraint, New York cheesecake should be a tall, bronze-skinned, and tense affair. At the core, it should be cool, thick, satiny, and creamy; radiating outward, it goes gradually from velvety to suede-like, then, finally, about the edges, it is cake-like and fine-pored,” they say in American Classics.
