National Cheesecake Day!
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 30 of July, repeating indefinitely
Happy National Cheesecake Day! Cheesecake dates back to the ancient Greeks, who made a type of cheesecake with fresh cheese and honey. 🧀🍮🍯
Though this beloved dessert didn’t originate in the United States, its composition was revolutionized by the American invention of cream cheese in 1872, which was then used for cheesecake in the 1930s. Another American invention – graham crackers – proved perfect for crust. 🥮🥮🥮
