This cheesecake recipe was given to me by a friend and its so easy and simple to put together. I baked this cake in a regular 8inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and greased really well.
15 graham cracker crushed
3 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp sugar
For the Cheesecake
15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted
3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
1 cups white sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract ( I used Bailey's Irish Cream)
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch springform pan. ( I used a 8 inch round pan lined with parchment paper and greased well on the sides).
- In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of pan.
- In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust. Put the cake pan in a pan which is bigger than the cake pan and fill with hot water.
- Bake in preheated oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door open slightly for 2 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
