Be it a clam winter morning or a pleasant sunny afternoon; certain things blend for during all seasons. One of those things is unarguably a cheesecake. You can serve it to anyone, and everyone and they will enjoy the same till they finish every single bit of it. But for that purpose, you need to know how to make the right cheesecake. Yes, that’s right. Adding a few glitches and touches to it does not make it a cheesecake. You need a proper recipe and should follow the right steps. So to help you out on that front, here’s how you do it.
The first thing that you need to emphasize on is the cream. After all, it is an essential ingredient that moulds the taste of cheesecake. So the type of cream that you pick needs to make things particularly lush and silky. For this purpose, you may have to go around looking for the right brand. Although it consumes a lot of time, towards the end, the taste of the cheesecake will make you forget all about the same.
Apart from cream, a cheesecake also requires certain other items that will enhance the overall taste of the cake. Eggs and extra yolk are two of the primary helpers that you need for the process. Three whole eggs and some extra yolk will develop the texture and help you to a delicious cheesecake. But you can also decide on the extent or the variety of taste by choosing between heavy cream or sour cream. Based on what you choose; the rest needs to be added in the right manner.
Cornstarch or Flour
Cornstarch or flour can prevent your cake from cracking as it makes things easier to cut and clean the slices. Doing so will not make critical changes to the overall texture as starch makes the cake a lot sturdier and firm.
A Water Bath
A water bath isn’t always recommended to be a part of your recipe, but by performing the same, you will be able to make it a little creamier. Your cheesecake will look and taste delicious, as this method is proven to be effective. The process is also not that hard since all you need to do is to put the cheesecake in a roasting pan, fill it with a few inches of water and place the contraption in the oven.
Few of the final steps include preventing the process of overcooking since it can invite cracks. Apart from that, you also need to remember that a cheesecake is made before the cake. Once you follow the procedure and are ready with the final product, then you need to keep it in the fridge to let it cool.
