Dear SOS: I’m wondering if you can give me the recipe used at Canter’s Bakery on Fairfax for its loaf-style cheesecake, sold by the pound. I’ve loved it for years and looked for one like it in many cookbooks without luck. I would love to be able to make it for family and friends. We don’t live near Canter’s, so I can only buy it now and then.
Dear Lynn: Canter’s was happy to share its recipe, which appears in “Los Angeles Classic Desserts” by Grace Bauer. We’ve adapted it below.
