Bad Bunny - X 100PRE Music Album Reviews

The expertly sequenced and always vibrant debut from the Puerto Rican rapper collects every fascinating side of Bad Bunny into one singular statement.
In the first three years of his nascent career, Bad Bunny put out enough singles and did enough guest features to fill out several albums. As an audition for pop superstardom, it’s been impressive. He can adapt to seemingly any style—trap, R&B, reggaetón, bachata, dembow—with a heavy, nasal croon perpetually drenched in Auto-Tune. He became a huge star in 2018, circumventing terrestrial radio and government censorship to become the third-most streamed artist in the world on YouTube. Why does Bad Bunny even need to release an album?

  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 pounds cream cheese room temperature
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Butter the inside of cake pan 8 inches wide and 3 inches deep. Sprinkle with graham cracker crumbs, shaking until bottom and sides are coated. Shake out excess crumbs and set aside. 
  2. Place cream cheese, sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and vanilla in bowl of electric mixer and beat at low speed, adding eggs gradually. 
  3. Blend on low then increase speed to high and continue beating until mixture is smooth. Pour and scrape batter into the prepared pan and shake gently to level the mixture. 
  4. Set the pan inside larger pan and pour 1/4 inch boiling water into the outer pan. 
  5. Bake for 90 minutes at 250 degrees F then increase to 275 degrees F for 30 minutes more. Turn off oven and let cake sit in oven 1 hour. Lift cake out of water bath and place on a rack. Let stand 2 hours then invert a plate over cake and carefully turn upside down so that cake comes out right side up. 
Recipe Notes
Recipe can be doubled and cooked in same oven.

This delicious cheesecake is my Aunt Judy’s recipe. Whenever she brings it to dinner, it’s always a huge hit.

Key to Success #1 – Simple Ingredients Make a Great Cheesecake
This Creamy Cheesecake is made with simple ingredients – just cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and a little bit of flavoring. Because you’re using so few ingredients, you’ll want to make sure your ingredients are high-quality.

Be sure to use full-fat cream cheese for the smoothest cheesecake and the best flavor. Use high-quality vanilla extract, too.

And let’s talk about the crust. The crust on this cheesecake is very light so that the Creamy Cheesecake can be the star of the show.

Key to Success #2 – Cook this Creamy Cheesecake Low & Slow
Good things take time and you definitely want to take your time with this cheesecake recipe. Don’t rush it. Just let it hang out and cook low and slow.

This low ‘n slow cook time makes it a great make-ahead dessert. After it’s baked and properly cooled, it can hang out in the refrigerator for a day or two before it’s eaten.

Key to Success #3 – Give It A Water Bath
The reason cheesecakes need a water bath is to help your cheesecake cook with gentle heat and also add moisture to the oven. These two things will help your Creamy Cheesecake bake up perfectly with no cracks.

A water bath is a lot easier than you’d think though. Just wrap the outside of your springform pan with foil and place it into a larger baking dish, such as a very large skillet or a roasting pan. Then pour a 1/2 inch of water between the outer pan and your springform pan and slide the whole thing into the oven to bake.

This Creamy Cheesecake is wonderful on its own. It needs no embellishments. But if you like to switch things up, it would be a lot of fun to have a Cheesecake Topping Bar for this cheesecake.

Make a Cheesecake Topping Bar
We had cherry pie filling, chocolate syrup, caramel syrup, pecans, and whipped cream on our Cheesecake Topping Bar, but you’re only limited by your imagination. You could do fresh strawberries, maraschino cherries, hot fudge, or chocolate chips. The sky is the limit.

I made myself a turtle cheesecake with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and pecans. It was sooooooo delicious and lots of fun to put together.

The next time you need a delicious dessert for a holiday get-together, give this recipe a try! It’s sure to be a favorite!
