Easy Cheesecake for Dummies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Andrea Tarpley

This recipe is a good choice for the beginner cook. It is a huge favorite among my friends and family. Many times it is requested as a substitute for birthday cake. You can dress it up with berries, chocolate or caramel. I like to keep it plain and simple though. I hope you enjoy!

Easy recipe for anyone. It doesn't take hardly anytime to make. I accidentally put in 3 eggs instead of the 2 eggs and 1 yolk and it still turned out great.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar flour and vanilla until combined.
  2. Add eggs and egg yolk all at once.
  3. Beat on low speed just till combined.
  4. Stir in milk.
  5. Pour filling into a graham cracker crust lined pan.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until set. You will be able to "jiggle" the center just a little bit. Otherwise it might be too dry.
  7. Cool completely before serving. (About 4 hours).
  8. Garnish with berries, chocolate or caramel.
  9. Enjoy!
