Here’s my classic New York baked cheesecake recipe and it is absolutely fail proof… This cheesecake is creamy on the inside, and has a golden crust on the outside. Delicious!
Well have you ever.
Somebody somewhere here at home liked this baked cheesecake recipe so so much obviously. Because I had a lot of trouble saving a slice for myself in the end…
I wonder who the culprit could possibly be?
Any idea, hubs?
What I do know is that this baked cheesecake recipe never fails!
I made this one a couple of times now.
This treat always comes out of the oven perfectly.
A fail proof baked cheesecake recipe!
The cheesecake is set in the middle, excellent texture.
Nice golden brown color on top.
I used the classic digestive biscuits to make the base layer, but you can use any type of similar biscuit.
I have even seen recipes use black Oreo crumble.
It also reminds me a little of my no bake Oreo cheesecake actually!
Classic Baked Cheesecake Recipe
Preparing the ingredients is peanuts.
I love that smooth and soft layer of digestive biscuits underneath! Only make sure to keep an eye on the cake when it is baking.
The top of the cake can turn black quickly depending on how your oven feels about baking.
You want to give it a deep golden color, but don’t char it.
To be really sure, just place a sheet of tinfoil on top about halfway though cooking time before it is too late.
Then remove it a couple of minutes before the end of baking time if you want the cheesecake to get a little more color.

Easy Classic Baked Cheesecake Recipe
Classic New York baked cheesecake recipe... absolutely failproof!
- 5,5 oz digestive biscuits (155 g)
- 1,5 oz unsalted butter (45 g), melted
- 12,5 oz quark cheese (350 g)
- 2,5 oz caster sugar (70 g)
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp pastry flour
- 2 medium eggs separated
Transfer the biscuits and melted unsalted butter to a blender. Blend into a fine crumble. Then cover the bottom of a springform tin with baking paper, secure it and spread the buttery cookie crumble on top using the back of a tablespoon. Place it in the fridge to set.
Add the egg yolks and caster sugar to a large mixing bowl.
Whisk well for a minute until the yolk mixture starts to turn pale and the sugar has more or less dissolved. Add the cornstarch, flour, quark cheese and a pinch of salt.
Stir well until you get a creamy batter. Beat the egg whites until stiff and add this to the cheesecake batter.
Gently stir until the egg whites are fully incorporated. Then pour the cheesecake batter on top of the chilled cookie base. Spread the top evenly.
Bake the cheesecake in a preheated oven at 356°F (180°C) for about 45 minutes. Turn off the heat but let the cheesecake in the hot oven for another hour. Place a sheet of tinfoil on top to prevent it from burning. Then remove the cheesecake from the oven, sprinkle with icing sugar and serve.
