Baked New York Style Cheese Cake #Bakingbloggers

The first attempt I, made this cheesecake, the base was the same quantity but filling I, doubled and made it in 6.1/2 inch loose bottom pan. This cake was wet in the center and the sides were perfect. Even after keeping it for an hour an a half, it was still very wet in the center. That was because the pan was small and the height of the cheesecake was way too much.
The next time I made the base same and the filling as given below. Made this for my friends birthday which we our trekking  group celebrated on Yeor Hills. They loved this cheesecake it was absolutely fantastic. Very soft, cheesy and mouth melting.
If you plan to make this filling in double quantity then use a 10 inch loose bottom pan..
Ingredients
For the Base
200 Grams Digestive biscuits
3 Tablespoon Caster Sugar
100 Grams Butter - melted

For the Filling
3 Small Eggs
200 Grams Cream cheese -Philadelphia
1/2 Cup Caster Sugar
1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 Teaspoon Heaped All Purpose Flour

One (6.1/2 to 7 Inch )  Loose Bottom tin lined well from outside with aluminium foil till the top rim. Grease the pan well from inside. 

Method

For the Base
Crush biscuits finely, mix in the caster sugar and melted butter, put in pan, spread the sides first, pressing it very firmly, spread biscuit on the base and level very well,by making a indent in the center it should be like it pie crust at sides. Cover the outside of pan with foil so water can’t go inside. Keep this tin in the refrigerator till the filling is ready.

For the  Filling

Beat the cream cheese well add sugar and continue whisking till well incorporated.
In a another bowl Beat 3 eggs very well, add essence , and whisk.  

Add in eggs in the cream cheese along with the flour and continue beating, add in the heavy cream and continue beating, for about a minute or two. 

Pour this  mixture in prepared pan, put to bake over water bath ( bain marie (ban mah-ree,  is the fancy term for a hot water bath) and steam bake for 45 to 50 minutes at 180 degree. 
This cake when you remove from the oven it will be wobbly in the center but not to worry, when it cools it will set, if you bake it too much then it will harden then you will not get the exact taste of a cheese cake it will be hard when completely cooled.  When still hot take a knife run it around the sides of the pan  - to looseen the sides of the cake. 
Place the cooled cheesecake in the refrigerator covered with a cling film  overnight.    
The next day  spread with any pie filling of your choice.  I used my Homemade Strawberry Crush ( which I, thickened a little more ).  
Slice,  serve.. enjoy..
