hello,
I have heard about cheese cake. Is it something like that it includes Cheese? I mean what kind of cheese is used and How it is cooked?
There are lots of questions in my mind regarding this kind of cake. I Have never taste it, so i don't have any idea about it. Please give me reviews or recipes anything..!!!

    There are a couple of different styles of cheesecake, and they do include cheese. One style cheesecake uses ricotta cheese and is generally drier and less sweet, while the other, more common style of cheesecake uses cream cheese and is often topped with sour cream and is creamier and more of a combination of sweet and tangy flavors. Generally speaking the soft cheese is mixed with eggs, milk, sugar and flavorings and baked in a graham cracker crust. Variations include adding chocolate or substances to the cheese filling.

    There are probably a million cheesecake recipes on the internet. All recipes seems to have 302: http://allrecipes.com/recipes/dessert...

      I gave up the sweet versions of cheesecake a while back but I still enjoy several savory recipes and some of my favorites include several diff types of cheese in one. A recipe that quickly comes to mind is something along the lines of this:

      quite low on sugar added but very creamy and guests seem to enjoy it.

      another savory cheesecake that is drier but equally tasty is this one: http://whatscookingamerica.net/Appeti...

      Enjoy prachishah!

        prachishah, I came back to this thread to share with you a recipe I tried out last night. Goat cheese cheesecake with fig jam. I'm intend this for a party on New Year's day.

        I enjoy a slice with my coffee this morning and it was very tasty. So simple too.

        I made the fig jam as outlined because the use of mustard seed and cider vinegar had me curious but even a quality jar of store bought fig jam used instead would save time and provide a nice result.
