Preparation – Making The Crust

Preparation – Cheesecake Recipes
Preheat the oven to around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To prepare the fillings, you should beat cream cheese until it is fluffy and then add eggs, vanilla, and sugar, one at a time. Continue beating until all the ingredients are properly mixed without any lumps and are soft.
Next, take a shallow baking pan and put the springform pan that contains the crust you previously prepared. After that, pour all the fillings in the crust and bake it for around 45 minutes in the oven. Now, the cake will be set 3 inches from the edge but will be a little wobbly.
Now, prepare the toppings. For that, mix and stir together vanilla, sugar, and sour cream. Then, apply the toppings to the edge of the cake and bake it with the toppings for around 10 minutes. Next, even out the toppings uniformly on the cake using a knife and let the cake set.
The Wait Time
With this, you have successfully prepared your cake. However, it is not ready to be served yet. You should leave it alone for around 6 hours so that it could set properly. You can also chill the cake as per your desire. Now, remove the sides of the cake from the pan and bring it to a plate.
If you wish, you can add any other extra ingredients like dry fruits, etc as per your liking. Once prepared, bring the cake to room temperature and then it will then be ready to be served. Let us know your thoughts below.
