Before there was the SkinnyBarbecue World Championship Cheesecake or the SkinnyEntertaining Very Berry Cheesecake, my go-to celebration cheesecake for many years was The 4 Blades New York Baked Cheesecake.

After a decade of Thermomixing, my friends Bec, Joe and Peta from The 4 Blades have closed their business this month – it seems only fitting that the final recipe in the Skinnymixer’s 10 year celebration recipes is The 4 Blades New York Baked Cheesecake.

We first met in person back in 2015 at a blogging conference on the Gold Coast and I connected with them immediately – they are some of the most beautiful humans I have had the pleasure of meeting 🥰 I was interviewed for The 4 Blades Podcast THREE times, and I was a contributor to The 4 Blades Magazine as well.

This New York Baked Cheesecake Thermomix Recipe is one that I made for my birthday celebrations for a number of years.

Yes that’s me up late one night baking my own birthday cheesecake to make sure it was perfect! LOL

I’m not a lover of SUPER SWEET desserts, so whenever I’ve made this New York Baked Cheesecake I typically halve the full amount of sugar – I’ve done this in the recipe below. If you would like to cook the original version use the 250g of sugar.

For my Gluten Free Skinnymixers, this recipe is very easy to make Gluten Free. Simply use gluten-free biscuits in the base and gluten-free flour.

As for Dairy Free, I’d love your feedback – we haven’t attempted it with dairy-free ingredients.

But we’d love your feedback!
