Daring Bakers-April 2009- Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake
The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge.
I was pretty happy with making cheesecake this month. Usually it's a cake someone in the family chooses as their birthday cake, but it had been a while since I've made it. It's one of those cakes that is fairly simple to make, yet heavenly delicious. Cheesecake is like ice cream to me, simple is best so I decided to leave it plain. If it's good, leave it alone.
Usually these baking challenges are enjoyed only by the family. This time there was company so I was able to share them with friends. This cheesecake tastes very similar to my go-to NY Cheesecake recipe, expect this one is baked in a waterbath so I couldn't use my springform pan. Oh, and this one had four times more heavy cream in it, so it was VERY CREEEEEAMY! Oh yeah, it was good! And it didn't last too long. ^_^
