It seems to me that the cook time is not long enough. It seemed too moist and I was concerned that the eggs weren't cooked enough. I re-baked it at 350 for 30 more minutes and it seemed OK. It looked like crap, but tasted OK and had a more cheesecake like consistancy. I would increase initial bake time from 50 minutes to 80 or 90 minutes and increase the second bake to 15 minutes.
