Impressive cheesecake recipes to indulge in, including easy chocolate cheesecake, baked New York cheesecake and a simple strawberry cheesecake.

Find cheesecake recipes that are easy but impressive, including this stunning Nutella cheesecake, James Martin's baked raspberry cheesecake and simple no bake lemon cheesecake.

Baked or no bake, everyone loves cheesecake. Baked cheesecakes tend to be richer in taste but lighter in texture whereas unbaked cheesecakes are generally thicker and firmer set, but everyone has their own preference, as it's a matter of personal taste. We've gathered the recipes that are the best of both worlds.

You'll find both traditional recipes and recipes that combine exciting, unconventional flavours for when you're feeling a bit more experimental! They're all really simple though, so you won't feel overwhelmed. Depending on the occasion you can either choose to make individual cheesecakes as a dinner party dessert of a big one to feed a crowd at a birthday party, for example.

Make the most of the English strawberries in this strawberry cheesecake with strawberry sauce recipe. Serve with strawberry sauce and extra berries for a true taste of summer.

Our cheesecakes look beautiful and taste delicious and your family and friends will be left wondering how you've managed to put together such a complex dessert - but in reality they're quick and simple to make so you'll have plenty of time to put your feet up and relax once you've whipped it up!
