Baked Vanilla Cheesecake

Fancy doing an impressive dessert that will definitely please the crowd but do not want to spend hours in the kitchen. A rich and creamy baked cheesecake will certainly do the job. This is the classic recipe for a baked cheesecake that is a rich and creamy vanilla taste to it followed by the nice crunch of a simple biscuit base.


  • 150 g biscuit crumbs (I used nice biscuits)
  • 50 g butter


  • 400 g cream cheese (full fat)
  • 200 g caster sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 40 g plain flour
  • 150 ml soured cream
  • 1tsp vanilla extract


  1. Pre heat oven to 170⁰ C.
  2. In a food processor mix together the butter and biscuit crumbs.
  3. Press the mixture firmly into the base of a pie tin and chill whilst preparing the filling.
  4. Beat together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  5. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition until just blended.
  6. Stir in the flour, soured cream and vanilla extract.
  7. Bake for 1 hour or until firm.
  8. Turn off the heat and leave to cool in the oven for 1 hour. Chill completely before serving.
