One little side fact, the cheese cake has been with us for thousands of years, with references right back to ancient Greece.
The cheese cake usually consists of a topping made from soft cheese with the addition of various flavors (i.e. lemon, strawberry, pineapple, chocolate, etc.) poured and set over a base. The base usually consists of crushed plain biscuits and some butter to keep the base together. The Topping is usually 4 to 6 times the height of the base.
Now cheese cakes come in a variety of flavors, virtually an endless list. The most popular of all the cakes has to be the lemon cheese cake. The sharp bite of the lemon mixed with the creamy softness of the cheese is exquisite and a favorite by all.
The number of recipes out there for lemon cheese cakes is staggering, nearly all chefs have there own little variety and ways on making them. Some are complicated and some are easy to make. Overall there are essentially only two methods of creating one, which is a baked or unbaked.
The difference is clear between them, obviously the baked one is baked in an oven while the unbaked one requires no oven. After that the types of cake you can create are endless.
Most people like to take a simple recipe that they like and slowly customize it over time to make it there own cake recipe. This is usually done by changing or adding ingredients to the topping or the base mix. A common starting point is for most is adding subtle flavor to the base, an example of which would be adding some fresh ground ginger to the base mixture to give it an extra bite or some chocolate chips (these add something dramatic to the base and are very nice with virtually all flavors of cheese cake).
