Strawberry Cheesecake Recipe

I’m sharing a very classic strawberry cheesecake recipe with you today. This cheesecake needs to sit in the fridge overnight in order to set completely and reach the true consistency. So you have to make it a day before you are planning to serve. However, this can be to your advantage if you are planning to serve it to guests since the only thing you will have to do on the last day will be to top it with the fresh strawberries and pour over the sauce. The recipe is actually very simple to make even though the preparation time is long. I especially have a lot of fun while whipping up the cheesecake batter. It’s always interesting and entertaining to see how a runny batter with very little flour in it comes out of the oven with a completely different consistency: thick, rich and creamy. I must admit, I feel like a magician every time I make cheesecake:) If you want to feel the same way, you must give this recipe a try!
