Mum's Cheesecake

This is a cheesecake my mum used to make on the holidays, and is absolutely wonderful. When she passed away, I found the recipe in one of her books and continued the tradition. Though at first I had never baked a cheesecake, it came out perfect the first time, and has continued to be a perfect bake on every attempt. Enjoy!
