Cheesecake is a type of cake that uses cheese as its main ingredient. There are different varieties of cheese that can be used in making cheesecake, including cream cheese, cheese powder, and plain yogurt.
Cheesecake is a rich source of minerals like calcium and zinc, as well as vitamins A and B2. Additionally, because cheesecake is fermented, these nutrients are easier for the human body to absorb.
When making cheesecake, it is best to use a slip-bottom mold or mousse ring to ensure a smooth surface that won't crack. The pan should also be placed in a water bath to help the cake bake evenly. To further prevent cracking, it's important to wrap the bottom of the pan with tin foil.
