This was a wonderful cheesecake but there are a couple things I would change about the recipe:
- The cheesecake part should be first. I had all the components made only to discover that the cheesecake had to be refrigerated before assembly. This was rather frustrating. Making the cheesecake first would have allowed me to make the other parts while the cheesecake was cooling and save time.
- Why was there lemon juice in the cheesecake recipe? It should have said it was a lemon cheesecake. There are several other cheesecake recipes that Rose has surreptitiously slipped in lemon juice. Why??
- I used the same spring-form pan as the cheesecake recipe and did not have to cut or modify the shape of the bottom layer. Not sure what the idea was here to use a different pan than the cheese cake.
Mis en place
You Meex like'a dis..
Lovely red cake. Someone seems to have taken a 'nibble'...
Not sure why we strained these, but I went with it.
No bath, just a cake strip.
Everyone enjoyed it.
