Cheesecake – 2 Maids a Baking

So sorry I am late posting this. I tried last night and blogger was acting funny. This weeks recipe is cheesecake. Believe it or not I am not a fan of cheesecake. Now you are wondering why in the world I am posting this. It is because my mom loves cheesecake!! In fact she sometimes doesn’t think I am her daughter because I don’t love her two favorite food items, cheesecake and coffee. I love making cheesecake and I love making it for my mom!!  
I start by setting out all of my cold ingredients out so they can warm up to room temperature.
In the meantime cut out your parchment to fit your pan.

Spray the bottom and top of the parchment.

For the crust I use the graham cracker crumbs but you could also make your own.

Add your cinnamon and butter.

Place in the bottom of the pan.

Use a cup to help press down the crust.

Bake for 10 minutes and place in the freezer to cool.

Beat the cream cheese

add sugar and mix until fluffy. 

Add the sour cream

Whip up your cream for 20 seconds

add your eggs


and lemon juice and mix until blended.

Add to the cream cheese mixture and blend

Heat up your water bath. I use about 1 inch of water in a 9 x 13 pan.

Butter the sides of your pan.

Wrap the pan in foil 2 times to help keep the water out.

I used two 6′ spring form pans but you could use a 9′ pan. Fill your pans and place in oven.

After you have baked your cheesecake and let it rest use a knife to help release the sides.

Place in the fridge for at least 6 hours.

  1. Oh my……this looks and sounds delish!

  2. Yum, I love cheesecake, and coffee! I have a delish Baileys and white chocolate cheesecake recipe that I want to make again- just need a reason, cause it’s so rich and tasty and perfect to share!

  3. Katie from Pinke Post told me about your blog. Awesome cheesecake! I can’t wait to try out your recipes. I LOVE cheesecake! Happy baking!

  4. One of these days I am going to make a cheesecake. I DO love them, but the whole process looks a bit intimidating to me. I’ll give you a heads up to be near the computer when I do get brave enough to try it. 😉

  5. I love cheesecake with coffee. So good

  6. I’ve never made a cheesecake. Well, that’s not exactly true. I did try to make one long ago and it failed. BUT your photo tutorial makes it look so easy that I’m going to give it a try for Father’s Day. Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  7. so yummy I love cheesecake but rest of family doesn’t so I don’t get it.
