Answer this question

  • why is cheesecake so dense?


Answer #1 | 27/12 2013 16:12
It is dense because of the cheese and egg mixture that makes the basis of the cake/pie. There are different types of cheese cake some are more dense than others it depends on the recipe possibly the type of cheese used. I have seen some recipes for cheese cake that calls for ricotta cheese rather than cream cheese. Recipes for cheese cake vary from region to region in this country. A New York style cheese cake is a bit lighter than the Chicago cheese cake that is more dense.
