However, I don’t think there’s anything that beats this super easy cheesecake recipe. Who would have ever guessed, for the few ingredients that this has the results would be that amazing! A big thanks to Irina!

    I made this and it was wayyyy to much for 1 crust

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Reotha, I will need to re-test this recipe, it’s been a while. Sorry that had to happen I hope you used up the batter in some way.

    My friend who worked in a Mexican restaurant says for one cheesecake they make was 1-1-2
    Means 1 sweetened condensed milk, 1 cream cheese and 2 eggs per pie pan. And to bake at 350 for 25-30 mins (once it sets well) place into pie pan with crust or no crust.
    They use to make this every Sunday for their buffet many years ago and we have been making it ever since.
    Beat cream cheese first to prevent lumps then add sweetened condensed milk then adD eggs and mix just until blended as to not overwork the eggs. Sometimes we add a splash of vanilla or lime juice for a change.
    Also we change up crust when we make this, graham cracker, shortbread or slivered almond crust. My girls prefer no crust. We also eat this plain but you can use any topping you wish!

      Thanks for sharing Julie! I need to try your version sometime!

      • Echo

      Thanks for sharing! I’m “making” my first cheesecake tonight and I’m using your recipe. I really will actually make one with all the ingredients one day, but this is a no time to wait to bake kind of week lol

        Good to know, Echo let me know how it turns out for you!

    • Deb

    Hi there, is it essential to beat the cream cheese first before adding condensed milk? What if the cream cheese and condensed milk were added together, would the consistency be more fluid/less creamy?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Deb, beating the cream cheese first can help prevent a lumpy batter and not over mixing the whole batter in general. It’s best to beat the cream cheese to a fluffy consistency first before adding any liquids. Once that’s taken care of the rest blends in faster.

    Hi Ana, I believe Irina doubles her recipe. This recipe makes 1 cheesecake and I do bake mine a little less.

    • Ana

    Are you sure it’s only 1 cream cheese because Irinas post say 2 cream cheese 2 eggs 1/2 can of condensed milk and baked for 45 min
