Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 60 minutes


  • 16 graham crackers, crushed fine
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 2 lbs cream cheese (four 8-ounce packages)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp freshly grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  1. In a mixing bowl combine the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press firmly into the bottom of a greased 9-inch round springform pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Mix in the milk, and then the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to combine. Mix in the sour cream, vanilla, lemon zest, and flour until the mixture is smooth. Pour the filling into pan.
  3. Bake for 1 hour, turn the oven off and let cake cool with the door closed for 4 hours to prevent cracking. Chill completely in refrigerator before serving.

Serve plain, or topped with berry sauce.
