Cheesecake.. the result..!

Well, I hadn’t really realised what a massive array of cheesecakes there are!  After looking through various recipes I decided on a traditional New York Vanilla Cheesecake.

Because Cheesecake is so naughty,  my god it’s bad for you!  I decided to choose a ‘healthier’ version.
