I almost never get to put the topping on this cake because as soon as I've turned my back usually half has disappeared. Personally, I like it better this way which is why I don't really complain unless I have company coming. With minor adaptions, this comes from Classic kosher Cooking.Prep. time is approximate & includes refrigeration.

What a unique tasting and quite delicious cheesecake. This is very light and fluffy - the beaten eggs whites really make this extra puffy. A very different taste from the typical NY cheesecake style I usually have made, but every bit as delicious. I skipped the crust, as my family doesn't really care for crust on cheesecake. This baked up accurately and tasted great.
