Caramel Cheesecake Day Date in the current year: September 10, 2024

Caramel Cheesecake Day Caramel Cheesecake Day, sometimes referred to as National Caramel Cheesecake Day, is observed annually on September 10. It celebrates a creamy, decadent dessert topped with a delicious caramel sauce.

Fresh cheese has been used as a cake filling since ancient times, but the modern cheesecake emerged in the 19th century. It consists of a crust, which is typically made from crushed cookies mixed with melted butter, and a filling made from a soft fresh cheese, eggs and sugar. Cheesecake can be flavored with various ingredients. For example, caramel cheesecake can have a caramel-flavored filling, caramel sauce topping, or both.

Caramel Cheesecake Day is one of many cheesecake days established by Patti Jewel and the team of HolidaySmart. Jewel created the original Cheesecake Day in 1985 and started to actively promote it in 2001 upon founding HolidaySmart. Once the holiday caught on and became popular, Jewel and her team created more food days focusing on specific cheesecake types and flavors. Caramel Cheesecake Day was added to the list in 2010.

The best way to celebrate Caramel Cheesecake Day is, of course, to have a slice or two of delicious caramel cheesecake. You can get a cake from your favorite bakery or make one at home and share it with the people you live. You don’t even have to be an experienced baker – there are plenty of no-bake caramel cheesecake recipes for you to try. Here’s a recipe we like.

For the base, make Graham cracker crumbs by placing 300 g crackers in a zip lock bag and crushing them gently with a rolling pin, or by using a food processor. Mix the crumbs with 135 g melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9 inch springform until even. Refrigerate while you’re busy making the cheesecake filling.

Mix together 750 g full fat cream cheese, 150 g store-bought or homemade salted caramel sauce and 125 g icing sugar using a stand mixer or an electric hand whisk. Once the mixture is smooth and lump-free, gradually add 300 ml heavy whipping cream (the original recipe calls for double cream, which has a higher fat content; if you live in a country where double cream is available, you should use it rather than whipping cream). Whisk until the mixture is thick, smooth, and able to hold its shape instead of sliding off the spoon when you scoop it.

Take the cheesecake base out of the fridge and smooth the filling into the sprinform on top of it. Put the cheesecake in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Once its sets, remove the cake from the springform and use a butter knife to smooth the sides.

To decorate the cheesecake, pour some salted caramel sauce over it. If the sauce is thick, put it into a bowl and microwave for 15–30 seconds. Let the melted sauce cool down a bit before pouring it onto the cheesecake. Gently smooth the sauce out using a palette knife and let it drip down the sides. You can also use caramel popcorn and other stuff to decorate your cheesecake.

Before enjoying a slice of your creation, don’t forget to take a picture and post it on social media with the hashtag #CaramelCheesecakeDay to spread the word about the holiday and encourage others to celebrate.
