So simple- and it tasted great! If other reviewers didn't like the egginess they may want to try adding another 8 oz package of cream cheese like I did. I had no problems and it tasted delicious. Thanks for this recipe! Read More

VERY yummy! I like the egg taste! My family loved it! (Especially because they had just come in from the garden!) I didn't have enough sour cream so I used yogurt instead. After splitting the topping into two bowls I mixed mint extract with one half and chocolate syrup with the other. I couldn't get back onto my computer so I didn't see the part of the recipe where you bake in the topping so we just plopped it on. I didn t have sugar so I used turbanado (I think I spelled it wrong) and Stevia instead. Read More

I needed a simple cheesecake recipe to make a grooms cake (for my now husband! yay!). At first this cake did not taste good very eggy as other said but by the time it was served at the wedding it was AMAZING! I guess it needed some more hours in the fridge. Everyone thought I had bought the grooms cake from the Cheesecake Factory (I made a red velvet cheesecake). They were so impressed when I told them I had made it! Read More

This was totally easy! Throw everything in a Kitchen Aid mixer and walk away! If you do want a crust try crumbling up graham crackers and putting them on top just before serving. Tastes great with fruit topping too! Read More

This is a poor excuse for a cheesecake. I don't think this should be called a cheesecake. I was VERY disappointed. I was CRAVING a cheesecake and I got an EGGCAKE! YUK! My husband who eats everything and throws NOTHING out told me to toss it!!!! Read More

I would rather call this an "Eggcake" than a cheesecake. Recipe called for too many eggs and baking time was off about 25 minutes. Came out overcooked and cracked. I took a bite and found it bordering on nauseating. Read More
