I love cheesecake, but not enough to make it from scratch just for myself. The boxed kind is cheap and easy and tastes good enough to satisfy my cravings. Occasionally (very) I might buy a wedge from the bakery department.

I, too, love cheesecake, and wouldn't dream of making it myself. I mean, why, when there is perfection out there? I love a local gal's cakes, and I can get them small, but I'll eat them by myself, so don't buy them often. Maybe for my birthday this year I'll ask her to make one just for me. Blueberry!

I don't know, I have had very few cheesecakes that live up to home ones.
then again, I really get into vegan friendly cheese cakes over dairy based ones for some reason..i've had both semi recently, both home made, had a store bought one a while ago and was turned off buy it fully.
Homemade always wins

Not sure about you recipe, but evaporated milk could definetelly be used as a substitude for heavy cream.

Vegan cheesecake? How is that possible? No cheese, no cheesecake. Simple. Is it soycake?

BTW, the "cheese cake" made out of Toffuti "cream cheese" is actually very-very good. My wife makes it when we canot have real dairy cheese cake.

I am using Lindy's Cheesecake recipe that I have seen here and other places, but forgot I don't have any cream. I have:

Whole Milk
Evaporated milk
sour cream

Little help?
I once used plain yougurt in cheesecake. It gives a light cheesecake with a sour taste. Ended up very well and everyone liked it.

I use tofutti cream cheese.
My cheese cake comes out super smooth and much liter then dairy based ones.
Technically speaking, it's still cheese cake due to being made from cream cheese...I don't believe something has to be made from the cliche item that we think of in order to fall into the category of a dish type
