CCC Cheesecake

Favorite cheesecake EVERRRR! I love em dense and thick, so that you are full when you’re done devouring it πŸ˜€ If that’s YOUR kind of cheesecake, this recipe is for YOU! You can totally quadruple this recipe to make a really thick, high cheesecake, but that is just TOO much cheesecake for one person! WHY you ask? Because I would eat it ALL! Hahaha!! πŸ˜€ Check out the TIPS below for how to quadruple this recipe πŸ™‚

In one mixing bowl:
2 eggs
Β½ cup sour cream
Put mixing bowl in warm water to bring upto room temp. Beat till creamy
In second mixing bowl:
1 8 oz package cream cheese (microwave for 40 seconds to soften)
2 Tbsp butter
Beat till creamy
Pour together and add rest of ingredients:
ΒΌ cup + 2 Tbsp sweetener (I use half Xylitol, half Splenda)
1 tsp Vanilla
Β½ tsp fresh lemon juice
Β½ tsp grated lemon zest
Beat well- about 2 mins
Pour into well- buttered small casserole dish.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 300 for approx. 90 mins, Till lightly browned on top.

TIP: Make sure your cream cheese is warmed up enough to mix till smooth, using either microwave or leave on counter till upto room temp.Β  You don’t want cream cheese lumps in your cake πŸ™‚

TIP: this is best served cold, trust me I tried both ways and while it’s still yummy warm, it is TO DIE FOR when it’s cold! πŸ˜€

TIP: To quadruple this recipe, use a little less of the lemon and 1 less egg. Use a water bath to bake for 2 hours 15 mins.

    Just in case someone is suffering fibro fog, you may want to change softening the cream cheese to 40 seconds, instead of 40 minutes. πŸ™‚ Could make a terrible mess otherwise. LOL

    this is making me drool. I haven’t had a dessert since I was first dx’d with reactive hypoglycemia a year ago . I was told that those of us who are hypoglycemic shouldn’t mess with those artificial sweetners such as splenda and xylitol as it will mess with our blood sugars. I have gotten this from several resources, doctors as well as Livestrong.com .
    I use splenda granuales. Can we cook with that ?

      Thank you for reminding me Anonymous! I need to remind people not to overdo it. You CAN have a little sweetener. Since this recipe calls for alot of sweetener, you would only be able to tolerate a small slice! In other words, don’t go crazy like I did and eat a whole ton of it at once! lol πŸ˜€

      And yes, I use Splenda in there too πŸ™‚ You don;t have to use Xylitol, I just prefer the flavor, it dosn’t get bitter like Splenda can. But many people love Splenda, so go for it! πŸ™‚

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
