Now the ingredients for the simple and delicious cake must be a sixteen ounce cream cheese, a stick of butter, two cups of crushed graham crackers, four large eggs, ½ cup of heavy cream, 1 cup of granulated sugar, two tablespoons of vanilla extract and three cups of water.
Steps to Follow: Making the crust• Next, you preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and while waiting for that to heat up you should quickly take out the cream cheese so it can obtain room temperature and begin to make the crust. To make the crust you need to put a stick of butter in a heat resistant bowl and then in the microwave for approximately 45 seconds to one minute or until melted. After it’s melted you crush two cups of graham crackers and once they are completely crumbled you join them with the butter. You can stir them together with a fork until combined. Then you spray all around the interior of the eight inch spring form pan some cooking spray; if you don’t use this source the mix will stick and it will be very difficult to slip away from the pan or it will just crack and break after hardening. Once that is done you must pour the moistened mix and press it gently around the surface and 1 inch up the sides of the pan. When completed you cover the pan with plastic and place it in the refrigerator.

Then you transfer from the mixing bowl all there is of cream cheese filling onto the crust in the spring form pan consistently. Now to bake, you shall place the spring form pan, containing the cheese cake mix, in a roasting pan. You place the roasting pan in the preheated oven and pour three cups of boiled water onto it so it surrounds the lower half of the pan with the cake. This technique is called the bath and it prevents the cake from drying out while baking.
Steps to Follow: Baking and concluding• The cheesecake should be baked for approximately one hour and thirty minutes; left with a temperature of 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the time has ended the cake should be slightly wet in the center and firm on the exterior. The cheesecake should be left in the oven for another hour, though with the oven off so the leftover heat will finish setting up the center of the pastry, without drying up the exterior. As soon as the hour has finished you can take out the roasting pan, containing the spring form pan, and then remove the spring form pan and place it on a cooling rack or a safe area where the cake can chill. After chilled a bit you can proceed with the following step; which leads to taking a sharp knife and cutting slightly around the edges of the pan, loosen a little the crust. To add a bit of flavor you can add any of your favorite topping, such as strawberry jelly and/or natural strawberries.
