12 September 2020 Cheese cake recipe (no crust)



Preheat oven

Preheat oven at 175°C.

Ingredients at room temperature

Ensure the cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs are at room temperature before starting.

Mix cream cheese

  • 900g of cream cheese

Mix the cream cheese thoroughly.

Mix sugar

  • 240g of sugar

Add half the sugar. Mix in thoroughly. Add second half and mix.

Mix sour cream, corn flour, and vanilla.

  • 100g sour cream
  • 40g corn flour
  • 1tbsp vanilla bean paste

Add the three ingredients and mix well.

Mix eggs

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk

Add the eggs and mix for 30 seconds.

Mix by hand

Finish mixing thoroughly by hand, using a wooden spoon.

Prepare pan

  • Springform pan
  • Parchment paper

A springform pan works best here. Wrap its plate with parchment paper and lock it in place.

Pour mix

  • Strainer

Pour the mix through a strainer and into the prepared pan.

Rest mix

Let the mix rest in the pan for 10 minutes to let air bubbles out.


Bake for an 1 hour 10 minutes. Maybe add another 10 minutes (or more) if surface is still pale. Turn the oven off, leave door half open, and let it sit for 20 minutes.

Cool off

Take out and let it cool off to room temperature.


Refrigerate for 4 hours (or overnight) before removing the sides of the pan.


Nom nom. Yum yum.

Bonus (topping)

I winged this one and it worked out well. Heated up frozen berries with some honey and used it as topping. The whole combo was pretty tasty.
