Cheesecake is a sweet dish consisting of two or more layers. The main, or thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar; the bottom layer is often a crust or base made from crushed cookiesgraham crackerspastry, or sponge cake.[1] It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake is usually sweetened with sugar and may be flavored or topped with fruitwhipped creamnuts, fruit sauce, and/orchocolate syrup.

Cheesecakes originated from ancient Greeks evolved in so many ways. Whether baked cheesecake should be classified as a cake, a custard, a torte, or something else is a matter of debate.The early Greeks considered it a cake.Some modern authors point to the presence of many eggs, the sole source of leavening, as proof that it is a torte. Still others claim that the separate crust, the soft filling, and the absence of flour prove that it is a custard pie.

As for me:

Whether it’s a cake, a custard or a torte, cheesecakes are easy to make, delicious and is a very versatile dessert. You can go wild with the berries and make blueberry, raspberry or blackberry cheesecake.  Top it with a whipped cream and go locco! Whether it’s healthy or not, It’s always pleasurable to indulge into something that you crave for once and awhile.

Be happy! Enjoy life! As they say, “You only live once!” So go ahead and indulge but don’t forget to work hard and exercise!
