This was so easy to whip up and it turned out Wonderful is right! I used your Strawberry Compote and it was the frosting on the cake! Everyone loved it, and complimented me with every bite just about! Potzi

This was really good, although I think four eggs is too much for this cake. I wish I had put fruit compote on it like you suggested, but I didn't due to a lack of creativity. Maybe you can post what fruit compote goes good with this cheesecake. On the whole it was a good cheesecake.
