No Water Bath Needed Cheesecake is the Way of the Future for Baking Cheesecake.

no-water-bath-needed-cheesecake

Baking the perfect cheesecake takes years to get just right.  Some examples are how long to bake the cheesecake, using the water bath correctly, to mixing technique. These are serious cheesecake issues, but today they are going to be made easy.  I’m the kind of Chef that doesn’t really like using the word easy, yet the food world has decided easy is popular and everyone likes easy. So, I’m going to give you just that;  easy perfect cheesecake.

First, let’s talk about something cool I found at the local restaurant supply store. This is my first product review. Today’s review is covering 9-inch silicone glass bottom cheesecake cookware. Just looking at this product you can tell it is very easy to use and a cinch with removing the cheesecake from the cookware. No more using knives to separate the cheesecake from the cookware. You’ll see how it works in the video below.

Classically cheesecakes are baked in a water bath. Ok, that’s nice, but who wants to move a cooking tray filled with scalding hot water? The risk of getting burnt, spilling the hot water on the floor along with the ruined cheesecake.  Nope, never again. My method is safe and easy.

The reason for the water bath in the first place is “even” cooking and helps prevent cracking. My method handles all these concerns.

Instructions

  • Wet a bath towel with warm water, rinse out most of the leftover water but don’t’ try too hard, the extra water is what we are looking for to retain heat.
  • Arrange the towel before warming the towel in the oven. Lay the towel flat and crease the towel on its sides making a bed in the middle towel-arrangement-No-water-bath-cheesecake
  • Warm up in preheated oven for 3-5 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and place the cheesecake bakeware in the middle of the tray and place the sides of the towel around the cookware.
  • NOTE: the towel will not be very hot after a short 3-5 minutes in a 325-degree oven, only a warm up starter for the baking process.

History of Cheesecake:

An ancient form of cheesecake may have been a popular dish in ancient Greece even prior to Romans’ adoption of it with the conquest of Greece. The earliest attested mention of a cheesecake is by the Greek physician Aegimus, who wrote a book on the art of making cheesecake. The earliest extant cheesecake recipes are found in Cato the Elder’s De Agri Cultura, which includes recipes for two cakes for religious uses: libum and placenta. Of the two, the placenta is most like most modern cheesecakes, having a crust that is separately prepared and baked.

A more modern version is found in Forme of Cury, an English cookbook from 1390.  On this basis, chef Heston Blumenthal has argued that cheesecake is an English invention.

Modern commercial American cream cheese was developed in 1872, when William Lawrence, from Chester, New York, while looking for a way to recreate the soft, French cheese Neufchâtel, accidentally came up with a way of making an “unripened cheese” that is heavier and creamier; other dairymen came up with similar creations independently.

Modern cheesecake comes in two different types. Along with the baked cheesecake, some cheesecakes are made with uncooked cream cheese on a crumbled biscuit base. This type of cheesecake was invented in the United States.

Caramel sauce

\

      Dulce De Leche

is a confection prepared by slowly heating sweetened milk to create a substance that derives its taste from the Maillard reaction, changing flavor and color. Literally translated, it means “candy [made] of milk” or “sweet [made] of milk.” Its origin is a highly debated topic and it is popular in most Latin American countries.

This stuff is great caramel sauce. It’s also cheap, which is only awesome because the taste is spot on. I’d compare it to the little caramels Werthers-caramel_candies
