>TWD: Tall and Creamy Cheesecake

>
Yeah, I’m back!!! Been busy baking the last couple of days: some cookies for friends and family and the TWD Tall and Creamy Cheesecake for my family and me to enjoy on Second Christmasday.


The Tall and Creamy Cheesecake was picked by Anne of Anne Strawberry and what a great pick it was! We all loved it!! A whole kilo of creamcheese went into this cheesecake so it was quite heavy, but it still tasted very light!
I used 1 cup cream and 1/3 cup sour cream. When the cake was ready to go into the oven I found out that my springform wouldn’t fit into the other pan, so I had to bake the cheesecake without a waterbath. I still baked it for 1 1/2 hours and it looked great!!
Since I had half a cake leftover I took it to work yesterday, my coworkers also enjoyed it!
I must say this was the best cheesecake I ever ate!! Yum!!!
Dad’s verdict: 8,5 out of 10
