    Excellent flavour and texture, easy to make, i followed the recipe exactly, but twice had it collapse in the centre. Nevertheless it was uniform consistency throughout when cooled, so it must have trapped air, how do I avoid this I wonder. I would take a really delicious cheesecake, from four stars to five, if I could make it more presentable in appearance  -  16 Oct 2010


    I put cheesecake in oven and after it cooked for one hour had to go out and it was left it in the oven for two hours and was light brown on the outside.....I served it with raspberry coulis and was told it was the best dessert I had made. Very easy recipe and am making it for Christmas Lunch for us non pudding eaters and this time not leaving in the oven so long........  -  23 Dec 2012


    This is my favourite cheesecake and it's always a hit. Not too heavy and the flavour is excellent. Easy to make as well.  -  07 Mar 2015
