Looks pretty good you might think... but again you would be mistaken because despite very carefully wrapping the tin with foil before inserting it in a bain marie there was leakage. When the cheesecake was removed from the oven the tin was sitting in water and as a result there was a very soggy bottom (the cheesecake's, not mine you understand). Which is a shame because the top looks pretty darn good.
So there was an early morning dash to the supermarket and cheesecake no. 2 was whipped up and this time surrounded with a triple layer of foil just to be safe.
Of course the men in my house didn't mind this culinary disaster one little bit. After beating them off with wooden spoons last night with cries " Hands off... it's not for you lot it's for the lovely E.G. ladies..." they are now laughing because they have a cheesecake all of their own. Even if it does mean scraping the topping off the base! Although apparently the base tastes fine (if a little damp) and I didn't need to make a second one at all!
