Lemon Meringue Cheesecake Recipe, It Simply Melts in Your Mouth

Everybody has a favorite dessert, the only thing that we are craving for when we are on a diet, and the food which is reminding us that life is in the small things.

Cheesecake is one of the most popular desserts all over the world, because it is full of flavor, and it has that cheesy, sweet, but very slightly tart flavor. It just melts in your mouth.

But, did you know that this creamy cake was first invented in Greece?

First of all this is not a cake, it is a baked cheese custard pie with crust, and it is believed that it was given to the athletes that were competing in the first Olympic games in 776 B.C. to increase their energy levels.

The first cheesecake is said to be made on the Greek island of Samos, and cheesecake molds have been excavated dating even 2,000 B.C. The oldest known Greek recipe that survived of the desserts is the one by the writer Athenaeus from 230 A.D.

However, the taste of cheesecake that we know today was developed somewhere around the 18th century.

While there are endless assortments nowadays, the New York Style cheesecake is accepted to be made by Arnold Reuben (1883-1970). After he gave a cheddar pie a shot an evening gathering he was welcome to and was charmed by the taste, he explored different avenues regarding plans and wound up making the famous NY Style cheesecake.

But let’s just stop here, and enjoy this recipe below, which is a modern, dairy and gluten free cheesecake!
