Does anyone have a great plain cheesecake recipe that is almost 3" tall and doesn't cave in when finished.
I always used the cheesecake recipe with eagle brand milk eggs and cream cheese, now I can't get it nice and high.
I need to have one before the holiday dessert sales time.
make it two layers
Thanks but I want the tall look .
do a refrigerator cheesecake!
I want cheesecake.
I use the serendipity 3 recipe, you can just google it and it should pop up. It's really delicious.
I do an Oreo crust instead since I hate walnuts :)
I hope that's helpful!
you want a new york or chicago style cheesecake -- bake it low and slow
then there's great discussion about the internal temperature of when it's done -- some say don't go over 145 - 150 or it will crack and some say go 165 so the eggs are fully set...but all that to say using an internal temp thermometer is very useful doing this kind of cheesecake --
i like to make the skinny bavarian cheesecakes with a bunch of fruit on the top -- you bake 'em at high temp and they are done in a jiff but the thick ones take forever
What is a Chicago style cheesecake?
Sorry didn't mean to submit. How tall are you looking for? I am not familiar with the eagle brand milk recipe
this would work for you:
but you'll want to add more batter to get it 3" tall and i would use magic strips (you familiar with those yes?) wet toweling wrapped around the pan so the batter on the outside of the pan slows down being baked so the inside of the cake has more of a chance to heat up and if it was me i'd turn the heat down after a while i'd play the temperature dial like a violin to make it not dome and fall -- you just want the eggs to set -- i would tent mine with foil if i wanted the cake to bake more evenly too --
but you definitely want sour cream in your recipe and i would suggest sieving your filling before baking to ensure a very very very smoothy smooth batter
Sorry to ask so many questions. K8memphis. I live very close to Chicago, and I never knew there was a Chicago style Cheesecake. What is in Chicago Style Cheesecake, I might try making one. I did a little internet research to see What's in it and where I can buy one, but I had not such luck.
new york and chicago are similar -- maybe one has the sour cream layer on top one has it baked in -- it's all good
I found this recipe online a couple of years ago and must say it's the best cheesecake I have ever made. I do substitute the milk for whipping cream though... It was the only think I had the first time I attempted it (I had ran out of milk and didn't realize it till too late...), but it was so good I have continued to do it this way ever since.
