This holiday, I decided to make a delicious and tasty cheesecake for the whole family. This cheesecake is our favorite one. The tenderness and scrumptious taste of cheese will bring fun into your day! I hope you enjoy the recipe...

½ tsp of vanilla powder – (recommended using Vanilla extract)

For the Cake 
200 grams granulated white sugar
4 whole large eggs
1 kilograms cream cheese
200 grams sour cream – (or you can replaced it with thick plain yoghurt)

For the Topping
