If we had it our way, we’d celebrate this melt-in-your-mouth classic every day, but we’ll settle for one decadent day out of the year.
We can’t resist the combination of rich and smooth cream cheese filling, layered delicately on top of cookie crumbs and topped with fresh berries and whipped cream. Rich, creamy and versatile, cheesecake is a classic dessert enjoyed around the world. Whether it’s a New York-style topped with succulent berries, or a toffee cheesecake with whipped cream and chocolate sauce, there’s a cheesecake for everyone to enjoy.
While considered a modern classic, cheesecake may have been a popular dessert in ancient Greece – its earliest mention is in a book detailing the art of making cakes, written by an ancient Greek physician. However, the earliest known recipe is found in an English cookbook from 1390, leading many to claim that cheesecake is an English invention. Modern cheesecake, with its cream cheese filling and cookie crumb base, is an American invention developed in the late 1800s.
Wherever it originated, we can all agree that cheesecake is delicious. That’s why we’re celebrating National Cheesecake Day with some of our favourite recipes, guaranteed to treat your palate and serve you that melt-in-your-mouth goodness.
