Need an amateur friendly quality cheesecake recipe
For my SIL's upcoming birthday. She loves to bake for others' birthdays herself, so I feel more of a necessity than usual to make sure that I do a quality cake for hers.
She loves cheesecake and chocolate. I'd be intrigued by a recipe that hits those notes and that berries (maybe berry drizzle of some sort) could also work well with.
You could always make a bullseye:
That way you get both chocolate and vanilla and it looks cool. Use all vanilla instead of almond extract if you prefer.
Or you could try a white chocolate cheesecake:
Cheesecake with chocolate glaze:
Caramel goes well with chocolate and fruit:
I recommend you do a low-temperature cheesecake 275-300 rather than a water bath if you're nervous about baking one.
No-bake cheesecakes are also really nice, but different in texture and require gelatin.
Thanks for the links!!! They all look mouthwatering.
I'm not sure if I've ever had a baked cheesecake, now that I think of it. I love the texture of the cheesecakes that I have had.
I'll ask my SIL if she has a preference there.
You're welcome. Most cheesecakes are baked, so I would think what you've had are baked. No-bake cheesecakes are the rarer of the two.
This is my go to recipe. I cannot help you with the chocolate part though-I like my cheesecake plain. I do not even like fruit on it :) I always 1/2 the topping part.

Xcptnl - I like the simplicity of that. I'm a cheesecake fan myself so that's getting filed away. Ty!
