Mum shares ‘world’s best cheesecake’ recipe and we’re drooling!

We're officially commencing our winter diet - and we'll start with this.

There's nothing better than knowing a 'world's best recipe' is available for us to re-create, especially when it involves delicious cakes. 

So when Australian chef, Stephanie Alexander shared her recipe for her ultimate New York-style baked cheesecake, some though to give it a go and the results are incredible.

Posting in a cooking Facebook group, one mum revealed she followed the chef's recipe and was surprised with how flawless her cheesecake turned out.

The trick is getting the hidden tips within the recipe, which Stephanie reveals: 

"Cheesecakes are prone to cracking," she explains, "which usually means they have been baked at too high a temperature. The mixture should not be overbeaten as this is likely to lead to the mixture sinking in the oven as the extra volume deflates."

So, before combining ingredients, the chef says to bring the ingredients to room temperature before mixing them and bake the cheesecake in a tray of water.

The added moisture prevents the surface from cracking and keeps it "exceptionally creamy."

The recipe then shares another secret tip which reduces lumps. That is to leave the eggs and cream cheese out of the fridge for 10-20 minutes before cooking, so that when they reach room temperature the fats and dairy mix faster and smoother. 

Thirdly, the 'fool-proof' recipe warns that over-beating the sugar, cheese, butter and cornflour can cause the cake to sink in the oven as the extra air whisked into the cheese deflates under heat.

Following these simple but fail-safe tips have meant that amateur bakers and home cooks around the world can proudly make their own version of the 'best-ever' cheese cake. 

And who wouldn't want to try a slice or two, just to make sure?
