Questions & Replies

  1. What size springform pan is being used in this recipe?


  1. This was a very good cheesecake. Everyone loved it. Easy to make, but takes much longer than the times quoted. Allow at least 30 minutes for prep and at least 7 hours for cooking, set up. You need to allow the cake to cool before refrigerating. I would make it again.
