    This was my first attempt at making a cheesecake in a springform pan. It was very easy and turned out delicious! Half of it was gone the first day by my quarantined family. It does take some time with all the baking, cooling and refrigerating so plan ahead but well worth it!

    I made this for my fiancé’s birthday, after massively failing with another similar recipe. This recipe is easy to follow, no water bath required and HE LOVED IT! Thankyou!
