National Cheesecake Day History

National Cheesecake Day is a day of appreciation for the cheesecake dessert. Cheesecake is a crusted cake typically made with a light color soft fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar. Based on the discovery of cheese molds, it is believed that cheesecake originated in ancient Greece.

Athenaeus, a Greek writer, is credited with the first cheesecake recipe, which only used basic ingredients such as cheese, flour and honey. After the Romans conquered Greece, cheesecake recipes began to include eggs and baking time. With the passing of time, cheesecake ingredients were modified to resemble the finished product we know today. The American version of cheesecake typically uses cream cheese and has evolved to consist of an uncooked cream cheese filling on top of cookie or graham crackers. English cheesecakes are cooked to completion and have a dry texture. This observance occurs every year on July 30th.
