FRIENDS Cheesecake Recipe

If you’re a 90s kid, the chances are that you’re a F.R.I.E.N.D.S fan. There are a million food moments in the show (half of them courtesy Joey and Monica), but one of our favourite episodes devotes a lot of time to a cheesecake obsession – The One With All The Cheesecakes.

Remember the story? Chandler finds a cheesecake on the doorstep, and despite knowing its addressed to someone else digs in. We can empathise. Then, Rachel joins him and they develop a cheesecake addiction – eventually going so far as to eat it off the floor. Again, we totally get it.

While we never figure out exactly what flavour the cheesecake was or what made it so special, we thought we would share a recipe for a delicious, creamy New York cheesecake that’s as good as we imagine the F.R.I.E.N.D.S one to be.
