Basic Baked Cheesecake

Basic Baked Cheesecake

This baked cheesecake has a really soft and silky texture!

Ingredients: 15 cm cake pan

Cream cheese
200 g
70 g
Cake flour
20 g
Heavy cream
200 ml
Lemon juice
2 teaspoons
Crackers (I use "Ritz")
60 g
25 g


1. Preparation: Spread parchment paper on the bottom of a cake pan. It's not necessary to line the sides. Melt butter in the microwave.
2. Make the crust: Put the crackers in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add melted butter and mix.
3. Put the crust into the cake pan. Line and press down using the bottom of a cup or spoon. Let it cool in the refrigerator until the batter is ready.
4. Make the batter: Heat cream cheese in the microwave for a few seconds.
5. Add sugar, egg, sieved flour, heavy cream, and lemon juice in order and mix well with a whisk after adding each ingredient. After mixing well, the batter is finished.
6. Remove the crust from Step 3 from the fridge. Pour the batter from Step 5 into the cake pan. Bake for 45 minutes in 340°F/170°C preheated oven.
7. When cooled, chill the pan in the refrigerator for a night. It tastes better to leave for a night, as the flavoring has soaked in.
8. Put the knife between the cake and pan and spin once around to remove the cake from the pan.

Story Behind this Recipe

I am constantly making this recipe. I do not like cheesecakes that have a strong egg taste, so I add a small amount of egg to make keep the cream cheese taste strong. This is the perfect ratio.
