Perfect Vanilla Cheesecake – Deliciously creamy vanilla cheesecake on top of a cinnamon spiced digestive biscuit crumb crust and topped with a sour cream topping!
This is my third attempt at making a full-sized cheesecake, and I’m happy to say I’ve found my favourite recipe for a scrumptiously perfect vanilla cheesecake. After hours standing in the kitchen, baking away, I can finally say I bring you my recipe for the most perfect cheesecake you’ll ever make!
Perfect Vanilla Cheesecake
I’m not surprised others find cheesecakes so daunting to make. Baking away in the kitchen for hours only to find your cheesecake has sunk, browned too much, or has a huge crack in the centre. Ugh! The cracked cheesecake is the most common.
There are a few ways to help prevent your cheesecake from cracking. You can either bake it in a water bath (placing the cheesecake pan in a larger pan filled with hot water) which I have done here, or you can bake the cheesecake at a really low temperature. Both helps, but sometimes you cannot prevent that one crack from forming.
When all fails, slap on a good layer of sour cream topping, or fruit! 😉
