New York Style Cheesecake has a rich, dense, smooth and creamy consistency that is hard to resist. When in the US it would be very difficult to walk by Cheesecake Factory without wanting to eat cheesecake. I would for no given excuse miss having my favorite cheesecake.
Once I moved out of US and during my stay in France and back to India, I longed to make the same cheesecake, but could not source that exact same cream cheese that they used. Until recently in India a popular Indian local brand (Britannia) started selling it. Though does not thoroughly match it, but works great and gives me a sense of satisfaction of having the real cheesecake.
The New York Style Cheesecake makes a perfect cake for any party or get together. Make this cake for dessert the next time you have friends and family over for dinner.

How to make New York Style Baked Cheesecake Recipe
To begin the preparation of New York Style Baked Cheesecake, grease a leakproof springform pan and keep aside. Preheat oven to 180C with rack in center of oven.
Place a broiler pan at the bottom lower rack of the oven.
In a medium sized bowl combine the cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press the crumbs evenly over the bottom of the springform pan. Refrigerate the pan along with the crumbs for about half about 15 minutes while you make the filling.
Preheat the oven to 170 C.
In large high-walled bowl or the bowl of the stand mixer place the cream cheese, sugar, and flour and beat on medium speed until smooth and fluffy, scraping down the bowl as needed. Add in the eggs one at a time until well blended and the mixture looks fluffy.
Finally add the cream, lemon zest, vanilla extract and beat until well combined. Care not to over beat at this stage as the mixture can tend to curdle.
Remove the crust from the refrigerator and pour in the filling. Place the cheesecake pan on a larger baking sheet and place in the oven to bake. After about half and hour of baking, reduce the heat to 125 C and bake for another 45 minutes until the cheesecake is set and the center of the cheesecake looks a little wet and wobbly, but still firm.
Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool completely. The cheesecake has to be refrigerated for at least 24 hours for it to set well for serving. You can cover the cheesecake with a cling wrap or foil and freeze for a few weeks as well.
When you are ready to serve the New York Style Baked Cheesecake, serve it along with a strawberry compote. Heavenly!
