The creamy confection has never been easier to make. This recipe was a Hit and excellent with coffee or milk. Enjoy it but don’t try to modify.
I recommend the dusting of powdered sugar that is shown in the photo. It gives the end-product a more “finished” look. It would be a good dessert recipe to keep on hand to serve to someone who is “gluten-free”.
Easy 3-Ingredient Cheesecake
Yields: 8 – 10
Prep Time: 0 hours 15 mins
Total Time: 2 hours 5 mins
- 1 8-oz. block cream cheese, softened
- 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
- 5 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
- Powdered sugar, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 325°.
In a large bowl using a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer using the whisk attachment, beat cream cheese until smooth, 1 minute. Add sweetened condensed milk and mix 1 minute. Add egg yolks and mix until fully combined, 2 minutes.
In another large mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, 5 to 6 minutes.
Gently fold egg whites into the sweetened condensed milk mixture until fully combined.
Tightly wrap an 8″ or 9” springform pan with aluminum foil and spray insides with cooking spray. Transfer batter to pan, then place the pan in a large baking dish. Pour enough boiling water into the baking dish to reach 1/3 of the way up the outside of the cheesecake pan.
Bake 50 minutes, then turn off heat and let cool in oven for 1 hour. Let cool completely until ready to serve.
Dust with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.
