Cheesecake is a sweet dish consisting primarily of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese, eggs, and sugar; often on a crust or base made from crushed Digestive biscuits, pastry or sponge cake. It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake is usually sweetened with sugar and may be flavoured or topped with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, fruit sauce and or chocolate.
