Classic Baked Cheesecake

A girl got to do what she has to do when she has a sweet tooth right? Oh, not to mention, a good reason to make a cheesecake is when we realised we have been married for 4 months. Woah, time just flew by so quickly..and to think it’s 4 months already!

I have been eying this recipe from Donna Hay for ages now. And I suppose having a food processor makes this soo much easier too.No more crushing bickies using my handy roller! LOL.
I made mine with a few modications with the cheese-just because packaging doesnt come with 330 grams of cream cheese or 460grams of ricotta (What am i suppose to do with 40grms?). It still turned out creamy and light which is what I love.

Oh, and pardon the cracks- I do not have a light in my oven so I needed to open the door to give it a few checks. That is of course, a BIG no no to baking cheesecakes. This one is a smaller crack though so I’m giving myself a small pat on the back that it is not as huge as my last cheesecake that I baked.. LOL

  1. I would say that cheesecake is a very close second to my love affair with pie.Who cares about the cracks, Daphne. I didn’t even notice that. All I could think when I saw the picture was, “Oh, now we’re talkin’! YUM.”


  2. My mum says cracks are how you tell something is home-made. When I started taking my summer cheesecake out of the oven before it cracked, she told me to leave it in so that it would become authentic!But, then, it wouldn’t come out of the tin, and become one giant splodge. Hence why you won’t find a photo of my fiasco!So, all that was saying was: great cheesecake!Rosie of BooksAndBakes
