With my parents visiting I thought I’d make a ‘special’ pudding for the weekend. Of course I managed to choose one from Mary Berry’s Baking Bible to tackle one more bake for my challenge!
I selected the American Chocolate Ripple Cheesecake (found on page 373). It’s the first time I’ve made a baked cheesecake.
I’m going to be totally honest here, although it was supremely tasty, it looked a mess! I’m not sure whether to blame me, my old, bent loose bottomed tin, or the recipe, but it seemed that the butter from the base leaked out onto the bottom of my oven and then when it came to extricate the cheesecake from the tin it was thoroughly stuck to the bottom of the tin! So, poor marks for presentation but the family gave it a thumbs up for taste!
Has anyone else made a baked cheesecake and had the base leak out? Or can anyone offer any tips/advice for next time? I’d be really grateful!
