This is my favorite cake, cheesecake, it is New York -Style cheesecake. Special thanks to my friend, Jenifer Maslow for teaching me how to make this cake. It has been passed on over a few generations of women in her family. I went to learn how to make it at her house, I took the cheesecake home to share with my husband and my friends, they all loved it and we all agreed this is the best cheesecake we had ever had. One month later, I took my Thai friends, P'Nok, Natalie and N'Pae, Tanasirin to learn to make cake with Jenifer again. We had so much fun and learned so much. We loved every minutes of it. Once again, thank you, Jenifer for all you did. You are a great teach.
I make cheesecake from my food processor, I don't have those stand or hand mixer. It works fine and I know I am going to have a nice one of stand mixer someday. I think I love to learn to make cake.
