Cheesecakes are always a delicious cake to serve on a birthday party. And even if you think, cheese in a sweet cake, you'll see after preparing it it won't taste as usual cheese. The cheese in cheesecake recipes refers to cream cheese and tastes more like a thick cream than cheese. That's because cream cheese is made from milk and cream. And it doesn't get ripened you eat it fresh, so it does not take time to develop a taste. That makes it very useful to use in sweet recipes such as cheesecakes.
Cheesecake recipes are very old. They are found back to the ancient Greeks and every country has its own varieties. In the Netherlands this is often the unbaked, whisked version with cottage cheese. In other countries it's usually baked in the oven. What most cheesecake recipes have in common is that they are baked on a crumb of biscuits, on which the topping is applied. Cheesecakes are often flavored. Chocolate and fruit are often the first choices, but you can find caramel, vanilla and even tea varieties. Like the varieties I have on this website you will find some delicious other cheesecake recipes: pumpkin cheesecake, a cheesecake with white chocolate and passion fruit and Dutch syrup waffle (stroopwafel) cheesecake.
A Dutch cheesecake
All off these delicious cheesecake recipes are baked. And so I found out that I haven't got a Dutch cheesecake version on my blog. Of course I'm going to change that very soon.
The cheesecakes in this recipe I baked on a bottom of coffee cookies. I find that the most delicious cookies to match a cheesecake recipe. Then the filling is poured over and a teaspoon of jelly is add. By baking them in the muffin pan you will get individual pastries. And that's very nice. Just try it yourself!
It's a good taste!
