This authentic classic Cheesecake will add a taste to any dining table. Here’s how you can make your favorite dessert in the easiest way possible! By Mariya


Digestive biscuits – 150 gms

Unsalted butter – 3 tbs

Cream cheese – 450 gms

Sour cream – 1/2 cup (If sour cream is not available, use AMUL cream)

Powdered sugar – 3/4 cup

Vanilla essence – 2 tsp Eggs – 2



– Take a ziplock pouch, add the digestive biscuits into it.

– Seal the cover, take a rolling pin and crush them well. But, do not make a powder of it

– keep it coarse.

– Add the crushed biscuits to a bowl (crush any big bits with a spoon).

– Add 3 tbs of butter and mix it well with the biscuit.

– Take a spring form cake pan and cover the outer sides and bottom with foil paper.

– Add the crushed biscuit layer to the bottom end and press it well.

– Since the crushed biscuit would be the base of the cheesecake, make sure that there are no gaps or spaces in between. (Use a cup or anything with a flat bottom to press and set the base well)

– Now bake the base in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes at 160 degrees Celcius.


– Add the cream cheese to a bowl and beat it well for about 2 – 3 minutes.

– Make sure you keep the cream cheese at room temperature before beating it.

– Once the cream cheese is nice and soft, add the powdered sugar to it and beat it well.

– Then add two eggs to the mixture and beat it well.

– Then add the vanilla essence and the sour cream to it and beat it well.


– Add the cream cheese batter to the base and bake it at 130 – 140 degrees Celcius for about one hour.

– Leave the baked cake overnight in the refrigerator. That helps you to de-mold easily.
