Although many would assume that Cheesecake originated in New York, the first Cheesecake actually dates back as many as 4,000 years ago to ancient Greece. Original ingredients in Cheesecakes were simply flour, wheat, honey and cheese. Cheesecake recipes evolved as this now-popular dessert spread across Europe and eventually to the United States. Europeans would add eggs, while here in US we added cream cheese to perfect the modern day American Cheesecake. Cheesecakes can be baked or unbaked, and the classic Cheesecake is made of fresh soft cheese, baked on a pastry or biscuit crust. While many different varieties of cheesecake are available throughout the world, the most popular flavors seem to be New York, Strawberry and Chocolate. However, more exotic flavors like Key Lime and Pumpkin are becoming increasingly popular as well.
