Butter Cheesecake

by - October 28, 2019

I have been wanting to bake this Butter Cheesecake for long time.  I had some leftover cream cheese from the New York Cheesecake I last baked and I thought I would give it a try. I am very happy with the delicious result. This recipe is adapted from here.

  2. The brownie is looking promising in the oven. But do you know why this recipe requires no baking soda? Or baking powder? Thank you!!!!Leaking Sink Toronto

    1. Hi there,

      Thank you for asking. Baking powder is leavening agents that cause batters to rise when baked.

      Cheers :)
