5 Favorite Cheesecake Recipes

5 Favorite Cheesecake Recipes From 5 Countries - All that's Jas

Saying that I like cheesecakes is an understatement. I’m mildly addicted to them.  Picking a favorite is like asking a mother which child she loves the most, but here I picked my 5 favorite cheesecake recipes from 5  different countries.

Did you know that cheesecakes date back to the ancient times? The first cheesecake recipe was found in an English cookbook from 1390 but the first mention was by a Greek physician way before then.

There are many varieties from baked to rare and each country adds a unique spin to it, which I can’t wait to explore further.

To think I was once intimidated by baking cheesecakes. Now, they are pretty much the only reason I have to work out. Thankfully, the gym membership is not priced by amounts of cheesecakes one eats or mine would be sky-high.

Do you have a favorite cheesecake or are you more like me? If so, can we be friends? 🙂

#1 Italy – Tiramisu Cheesecake

When you equally love two desserts and can’t decide which one to make, you make them both as one. Apparently, there are more people like me because this recipe has taken Pinterest by the storm.

#2 Bosnia and Herzegovina – Baklava Cheesecake

Baklava is THE must have dessert in my home country so it’s a no-brainer that we will incorporate it with a cheesecake as well. Making this is a little labor intensive, but oh so worth it!

#3 Japan –  Rare Cheesecake

Japanese call no-bake cheesecake rare, which totally makes sense. Here’s the one I made for Valentine’s Day. I also made this one for Easter, but they can be consumed inhaled year round.

#4  North America – Layered Maple Cheesecake

Another fusion cheesecake. This one is perfect for fall and a must on your Thanksgiving table so make sure to save it/pin it now. Even the non-cheesecake lovers in my family loved it!

#5 Mexico – Cheesecake Chimichangas

These delicious little chimi cheesecakes can be devoured any busy weekday because they’re super easy to make. Thus it makes them super dangerous too. Easy to make, easy to eat…gym, here I come!

    How can you have non-cheesecake lovers in your family Jas? Are you sure they aren’t alien invaders or something, coz that’s just wrong. Especially when they have someone like you making these delicious versions for them. Nope they’re aliens, I’m convinced 😉

      Haha, maybe they’re aliens or just don’t have a refined taste. It’s not like they don’t like cheesecake (trust me they eat everything in site, lol) but it wouldn’t be their first dessert choice, I guess. Me, on the other hand…give me my cheesecake and back off slowly, LOL.

    I am smitten by the baklava cheesecake. Even though I’ve eaten my fair share (and more:) of baklava throughout the years, especially when my grandma was still alive, I’ve never had baklava cheesecake. Amazing! Pinning!

      Thank you, Milena! Gotta combine two of the favorite desserts 🙂 Was your grandma, by chance, from the Balkan region?
