Ultra rich, creamy, dense, smooth and amazingly delicious for words, this season try this baked eggless mini apple cheesecake and you would ask for nothing more. It’s so easy to prepare and so satiny rich in texture. Love New York style cheesecake, then you definitely need to try the eggless version and you would be totally delighted with the flavor and texture

The cheesecake can be served as is. Alternatively, it tastes equally good with ice cream , caramel sauce on top. You can make them plain without apple toppings too. You can use your favorite toppings on plain cheesecake as desired

Unlike the New York cheesecake which has eggs in it, this is eggless hence this will not rise. My cheesecake didn’t crack at the top so I did not find the necessity of water bath however if you face issues with cracked tops then take a bigger cake tin, fill it with water and place at bottom for steam bath. Do not over bake them as they will dry out. Unlike cake, cupcakes bake quickly so do keep an eye on cheesecake after 16-17 minutes.

Do watch the video for better clarity in preparation and share your experience once you prepare the cake

Notes:

*All ingredients must be at room temperature

*Never overmix the batter as it would incorporate air bubbles and can crack the top of cheesecake

**Every oven is different so keep an eye on cheesecake after 17 mins. I did not experience any issues however If your oven is getting heated quickly then place the cake tin in water bath while baking for smooth cheesecake top

**I have used non dairy whipping cream so the sweetness was perfect. Increase the sugar and vanilla extract slightly for regular whipping cream

**Instead of Greek yogurt, sour cream can also be used
