    Flowerfairy's Note:

    This cake is from 'How to be a Domestic Goddess' and is my favourite cheesecake recipe so far. I posted the original recipe but I usually replace half the cream cheese by Philadelphia Extra Light (6% fat), to make a lighter cheesecake, and take just 2/3 of the recipe and bake it in a 20cm springform for 1 hour.

      A lot of messing about for a fairly unpleasant tasting and textured cheesecake. Wouldn't recommend. Quantities way out I made one 24 and one 21 inch cake out of the ingredients given for one 24inch

      Normally I love her recipes, but this overflowed out of the tin and the top browned too much and a huge crack was made in the middle after explicitly following directions and having made many cheesecakes before. Too light a texture and not at all what I think of when I picture "New York Cheesecake".

      Ehhh is all I can think to say about this 'BLAND'. I had such high hopes because I do love Nigella's recipes but its just not very sharp tasting like usual cheesecakes taste. Perhaps its from adding in the cream as I find every other recipe I've tried doesn't call for it. And each time I've tried this recipe, the top gets burnt.
