cheesecake thursday

This is Donna Hay’s Classic Baked cheesecake (recipe here). It’s cooling on the kitchen bench as I type; my son has just arrived home from work and is inquiring anxiously about its intended destination. I usually make a dessert when  queenwilly hosts one of her  mah jongg parties so that’s probably where it will end up. Guess I could cut him a slice though. It’s big enough to feed 12 people! You can see Donna’s version in the “before” shot, mine’s a bit more golden than hers – I think it looks better that way
