New York Cheesecake
Yumm...the New York Cheesecake is exactly what Nigella said it would be "that airy lightness". I can tell you now that those so-called New York Cheesecakes you get out there (least the ones I've tried) - are just wannabes. With the 750gm of cream cheese in there, this cheesecake didn't taste one bit the type of cheesecake I'm used to - the creamy rich and dense version. Definitely one cheesecake that you can easily go for seconds. Though the next time I bake this (yes, this recipe is a keeper), I'd use the water-bath. The top cracked after just 30mins in the oven and the recipe called for 60 to 90 minutes of baking time, 2 hours of resting in the oven (door closed) and another hour cooling outside before it went into the fridge. Yeah, nearly 5 hours for this cheesecake. But well worth the time and fiddly preparations.
