DIRECTIONS

  • Position rack 1/3 down from TOP of oven and preheat to 350 degrees F (175C).
  • Butter a 13x9x2" cake pan or large springform pan (put foil around outside of springform pan as the cheesecake batter is quite runny) and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat cheese and butter until soft and smooth.
  • Beat in vanilla, sugar and cornstarch and continue beating until smooth.
  • Beat in eggs one at a time and then, on low speed, gradually add the cream.
  • The mixture will be very thin.
  • Add lemon juice and beat only to mix.
  • Pour into pan, place in larger pan that is not deeper than cake pan and pour in hot water almost 1" deep.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, rotate pan from front to back; raise oven temperature to 400 degrees F (190C) and bake 10-15 minutes more, until top is pale golden-brown.
  • Remove from hot water and let cool completely (do NOT!!! refrigerate until it has been removed from baking pan! otherwise you'll never be able to get presentable pieces out.).
  • Turn out onto cake plate and serve with your topping of choice (strawberries and whipped cream are always good).
