My all-time favourite dessert is cheesecake just plain and simple cheesecake! I won’t turn down a flavoured, loaded cheesecake,  but I love a plain, tall and creamy cheesecake. This recipe for Tall and Creamy New York Cheesecake is by far my favourite!

I am celebrating my new and updated blog and the best way to celebrate is with my favourite dessert Tall and Creamy New York Cheesecake! After being on blogger since the start of my blogging days I decided to make the bold move over to wordpress. To say this caused me some anxiety is an understatement. I am not the most tech savvy person, something my family tells me all the time. Their only help is to say “just google it”. So stick with me through this huge learning curve and many wonky mistakes.  Please don’t be afraid to drop me a note if things don’t quite look right.


32 oz cream cheese (4 packages) room temperature

5 large eggs room temperature

2 cups sour cream room temperature

8 tbsp butter room temperature

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 tbsp cornstarch

2 vanilla beans can substitute 1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1 tsp fresh lemon juice


Tightly wrap 2 layers of aluminum foil around the outside of a 10 inch springform pan covering bottom and sides.

Generously coat inside of pan with butter.

Preheat oven to 300º F.

Using an electric mixer with paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth.

Add eggs one at a time until blended.

Add sour cream and mix until smooth.

Add sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and lemon juice, beat until smooth, about 2 minutes.

Pour into springform pan and place in a roasting pan large enough to prevent sides from touching.

Place into oven and carefully pour boiling water into roasting pan to reach halfway up sides of springform pan. (be careful not to splash any water onto cake)

Bake for 2 hours, or until cake is lightly browned on top. My oven is a convection oven, so bake time in regular oven may be longer.

Remove from water bath (bain-marie), remove foil and cool completely at room temperature before unlatching and removing rim.

Cover and refrigerate until well chilled (best to leave chill overnight). Cake must be well chilled to set properly.

Serve plain or with berries and whipped cream or even caramel sauce.
