    This cheesecake was delicious! It was very light and fluffy, not heavy like the usual cheesecake recipe. I replaced 3/4 of the sugar with monk fruit to lower the carbs, you cannot tell the difference. Great recipe, I will make it again!

    Can I get the American version of this? 400 grams of cream cheese is how many ounces? Also, for sugar, sour cream and heavy cream. Thank you.

    Is the vanilla measurement correct? Seems a lot of vanilla.

    Hi Ingrid, I am inclined to agree but that is how much she put in the video, you can see her pour it in. It’s perfectly ok to use less.
