10 of the Best Cheesecake Recipes

Delicious and decadent, cheesecakes are always a winner. Whether you like your cheesecakes au naturel, smothered in caramel sauce, piled high with berries, baked or set, we’ve got something here to tempt you.

If you thought cheesecake was invented in New York, it may surprise you to learn that it actually dates back over 4,000 years to ancient Greece. According to (which sets out the history of this beloved dessert), in ancient Greece, cheesecake was considered to be a good source of energy, and there is evidence that it was served to athletes during the first Olympic games in 776 B.C.

Greek brides and grooms were also known to use cheesecake as a wedding cake. The simple ingredients of flour, wheat, honey and cheese were formed into a cake and baked.

I wonder what the ancient Greeks would make of these 10 fantastic cheesecake recipes.
