Baked New York Cheesecake

July 9, 2013

Only Time Will Reveal

It is exciting and nerve racking when you bake desserts in the oven because it is risky to keep opening the oven to check if the meal has finished.  Doing this usually makes the dessert collapse  and all you can do is watch your hard work crumble.  What I love about flans and cheesecakes is that you can keep checking and so you have no excuse to take out before it is set.  I love baked cheesecakes and for the first time ever I used a shop brought flan base which actually tasted really nice.  This cheesecake is creamy and perfect for a quick fix dessert.

This recipe was adapted from Good Housekeeping Magazine (November, 2012).
