This is just your basic, simple cheesecake. It's rich, dense, and very easy to make. Garnish as desired. I like mine just pure, unadulterated cheesecake! :o)

Classic, simple, sweet... a delicious cheesecake! Preparing it in a blender makes this is an easy dessert to make. It doesn't have your traditional graham cracker crust, but it was a unanimous hit in the Test Kitchen. With the perfect balance of tanginess and sweetness, the wonderful flavors of the cheesecake are allowed to shine. It has a dense center with a custardy texture. We loved it!

How To Make cheesecake in a blender

Test Kitchen Tips
If you want to prevent cracking, this can be prepared in a water bath. Boil about 2 cups of water. Place your aluminum-foil-lined pan into a roasting pan. Carefully pour the boiled water around the pan until it's 2 inches deep.
  • A springform pan sprayed with non-stick spray and lined with aluminum foil.
    1
    Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 10" springform pan with PAM. Wrap the bottom and up the sides of the outside of the pan with a square of aluminum foil, to protect against any leaks. Make sure your springform pan is properly aligned and that it tightly seals when you snap the ring shut! NOTE: If you want to use a 9" springform pan to get a thicker piece of cake, you will have to bake the cake at least 10 minutes longer. Watch it closely, and use a cake tester to test for doneness.
  • Sifting flour, baking powder, and sugar into a bowl.
    2
    For the crust, sift together flour, baking powder, and sugar.
  • Beaten egg in a small bowl.
    3
    Slightly beat the egg.
  • Melted butter and egg combined with the flour.
    4
    Mix together add melted butter and egg to the flour. Stir until combined.
  • Flour mixture pressed into the springform pan.
    5
    Press the mixture along the bottom and slightly up the sides of the prepared pan.
  • Cheesecake ingredients processing in a blender.
    6
    For the cheesecake, place the cream cheese, flour, 2 eggs, sugar, and milk into a blender. Process on high for 3 minutes. No, there is no vanilla in this recipe! Really & truly!
  • Cheesecake batter poured into the springform pan.
    7
    Pour into the prepared crust.
  • Blender cheesecake baking in the oven.
    8
    Bake for 55 - 60 minutes (longer, if you use a 9" springform pan). Cool and remove from the springform pan.
