Cheesecake, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come. Lead us into temptation, and deliver us from hunger. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

Such a pretty sight. #midnightcheesecake

WHAT GOES IN

From the cheese, all the way down to that tablespoon of cornstarch, I tell you what goes into a batter, and why!

What stories would your bakeware tell? Oh the ones that mine would!This is an #ekcoloy vintage pan, that originally belonged to a lovely lady who lives a few blocks down the road. I bought it from her through a garage sale. She told me these (have a couple more) were her favourite pans to bake on, and I imagine her in her kitchen, and I imagine the stories. #midnightcheesecake

HOW IT’S DONE

What makes the process look so effortless? Do you really need that springform pan? Does a KitchenAid make that big of a difference? Does a water bath matter?

These dark purple streaks over the darkest chocolate ricotta cake remind me why I love blueberries with all my heart! #midnightcheesecake

WHAT COMES OUT

Everything from the crust to the filling, from custardy to creamy, the possibilities are endless!
