According to the National Day Calendar site today is National Cheesecake Day!


cheesecake recipe

This smooth dessert hits the spot when dessert time rolls around. While most cakes have a crumb, cheesecake’s texture is nothing like cake. Indeed, its creamy, thick pudding-like character comes from the soft cheese used as the main ingredient.  Depending on the recipe, either cream cheese or cottage cheese is used. When the cheese is mixed with sugar, eggs, and other ingredients, the batter is added to a crust.

One of the most common crusts used with cheesecake is a graham cracker crust. Other options include a cookie crust, pastry or sponge cake. Some cheesecakes are crustless. Depending on the recipe, cheesecakes may be prepared baked or unbaked.

When faced with choosing a cheesecake flavor, don’t panic. While the options may seem overwhelming, bakers solved this problem. They offer a variety of flavors in one cake. So, take one home and try each one. Since cheesecakes do come in a wide variety, consider your tastes. If you prefer summer fruits and berries, cheesecakes have you covered. Tropical options hit the spot, too. For coffee lovers, bakers provide a rich selection. And don’t forget delicious chocolate and nutty flavors. Each cheesecake may be served with fresh fruit, a sauce, whipped cream or plain. 

History of the Cheesecake

It is possible that an ancient form of cheesecake may have been a popular dish in ancient Greece.  It has been found that the earliest attested mention of a cheesecake is by Greek physician Aegimus, who wrote a book on the art of making cheesecakes.

We may be able to credit the ancient Greeks with creating this delicious dessert. The oldest written recipe for cheesecake has been traced back to Greek physician Athenaeus. 

James Kraft developed a form of pasteurized cream cheese in 1912.  In 1928, Kraft acquired the Philadelphia trademark and marketed pasteurized Philadelphia Cream Cheese. Today, cheesecake makers use this brand more than any other. 

Styles of Cheesecakes:
  • New York-style cheesecake
  • Pennsylvania Dutch-style cheesecake
  • Philadelphia-style
  • Farmer cheese cheesecake
  • Country-style cheesecake
  • Lactose-free cheesecake
  • Cheesecake Kludys
  • Chicago Style cheesecake
  • Savory cheesecake

Whether you make one at home or pick one up at a bakery, savor the creamy taste of cheesecake! We even have a  New York Cheesecake recipe for you to try. Post on social media using #NationalCheesecakeDay and share your favorite variety.

Nothing as yummy as a great cheesecake.  We had one of the best in a little restaurant in Florence.  When I asked about the ingredients, our hostess told us: "Philadelphia and Marscapone".  Of course the Philadephia referred to Kraft cream cheese.  I made it when we got home, and yes, that was the very best I had once again.  A
