Thread Starter 
I need a recipe for a very Firm cheesecake. I appreciate if anybody who can post a recipe for this help me.... one more thing is there a pastry formula to make a cake or in this case a cheesecake more firm and dense?
thanks

Flour will do the trick. That and then overcooking the cheesecake with said flour. Unfortunately all Cheesecake recipes I have do not include flour but it shouldn't "hurt" if you add about a half cup of flour per cheesecake you're making (please don't take my word on it, it's an estimate.)

I'm not a pro baker or anything but i put 2 tablespoons of flour in my recipe and my cakes come out pretty dense...so i would say about 4 or 5 tablespoons should be enough.

Yep! Flour will do the trick. IMHPO I would try to not get too much more than a 1/4 or 1/3 cup per 2#'s of cheese (or each 10" round). Makes for a " very firm but not as creamy" cheese cake. Then again....that may be what you're after in the first place. I guess it all comes down to tastes.

Kinda ironic this came up, just finished pouring the batter into the pan for a cheese cake I'm making for a party this week. White Chocolate, Raspberry with a Macadamia nut crust. It's been a long while since I made one so hopefully it'll be "picture worthy". I'll try to post pics of the finished product if it is.

Most store bought cheesecakes use a modified food starch, guava gum or other thickeners to make them dense.

I would have to go with the modified starch .i dont think the flour will bake out .look for a starch that will have a cleaner mouth feel .or reduce the liquid and or sugar just a small % .now for my quick storie worked at a place they had a lemon filling that was not lemomie enough ,so what did they do ? added lemon pudding to it .I would reduce the sugar and try that .any way try taking away before adding a ''quick fix '',
Merry Christmas .
