20-Pound Cheesecake

105 mins (prep 15, cooking 90)
12 ingredients
10 servings
This is from a yellowed clipping from Mom's recipe box, at least 25 years old, from the Detroit News. Why the name? No one knows, but speculation has it that its denseness and weight, coupled with a slight sense of exaggeration led to the overstated name for the cake. Don't be put off by that, however. Its texture is unusually creamy and tender, compared to the thick and heavy fillings found in many homemade cheesecakes. Prep time does not include chilling.
