TWD- Tall and Creamy Cheesecake


So there are baked and unbaked cheesecake people in this world.  Without making any slanderous comments toward the fools that prefer unbaked, I belong to the baked loving side of the fence (but to be fair the no bake cheesecake recipe in Nigella Express is not a hardship to eat).

Dories Tall and Creamy cheesecake is baked in a water bath long and slow.  It has a great mouth feel- unlike so many of the bought cheesecake varieties.  I really hate the slimy residue (cheaper filler fats with a different melting point I suspect) left in the mouth after eating these.  I do not begrudge a luscious calorie but will not eat rubbish for the sake of it.

I went for the straight up recipe.  I used sour cream (full fat) as that was what was in the fridge.  But I made it to take to a party- this is a cake meant to be shared.  I could see recently aquired clothes not fitting if I sat down to 2 pounds of cream cheese with a sour cream chaser all on my pat malone….

This time I put my springform 9 inch tin inside a scant 10 inch silicone round instead of the al foil wrap.  It wasn’t a really firm fit but I think it worked well for the water bath.  And the results were really good.


The cheesecake was a hit.  It was really lifted by some berry sauce I had in the cupboard (Smashed berry and vodka- how could it go wrong?).
