What is the difference between New York Style Cheesecake and regular cheesecake?

A regular cheesecake will have heavy cream and sour cream to thin out the batter.

However, New York Style cheesecake will use lots of cream cheese making it very dense and rich. What it’s known for!

What are the three types of cheesecake?

The three types of cheesecake are a regular cheesecake, New York Style cheesecake, and a no bake cheesecake. These are the most popular types of cheesecake.

But you will also see crustless cheesecakes, mini cheesecakes, and cheesecake bars – all spinoffs of the classic!

What cheese is best for cheesecake?

Cream cheese is the usual cheese in a cheesecake recipe. However, sometimes you may see ricotta, or mascarpone.

I always recommend using a full fat, brick style cream cheese which will give you the best texture. Whipped cream cheese will have air added to it and change the texture.
