Fun Bakery - New York Cheese Cake

For one reason, I didnt attend Max's bday dinner on Sunday but I actually had one so called bday dinner with him last week already, so its ok la :)

Tho I didnt go, I still kept my promise to bake him a bday cake, so here comes the New York Cheese Cake.

Supposingly there should be a crust but if you are lazy enuff like me, you can just try baking the filing part, it's already nice.

Ingredient (for a 8" cake) :


- 2 ½ pounds (around 4 sticks of 250g) cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups sugar
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2 tpb juice from 1 lemon
- 2 tsb vanilla extract
- 2 large egg yolks, plus 5 large eggs, at room temperature

Direction:
- Preheat the oven to 325F (160C)
- In a bowl, add and beat the following ingredients at medium-low speed until combined, each time about 1minute. Scrape the beater and the bottom and sides of the bowl well with a rubber spatula between each addition:
- cream cheese
- salt and about half of the sugar
- remaining sugar
- sour cream, lemon juice, and vanilla extract,
- egg yolks
- two eggs at a time
- bake for abt 1hr15mins
- Run a paring knife between the cake and the pan sides. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, at least 3 hours. (Can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.)
- To unmold the cheesecake, remove the sides of the pan. Slide a thin metal spatula between the crust and the bottom of the pan to loosen, then slide the cake onto a serving plate.
- Let the cheesecake stand at room temperature about 30 minutes, then cut into wedges.

the mixture of all ingredients
its ready to be put in the oven
it raised up a lot but no worry, the batter would go down like 30% after cooling down
DONE! silly me, 4got to cover the surface with a foil so it got burnt.. Looks not too nice lor
