Orange Cheese Cake

This was my second attempt in baking this orange cheese cake. The first one was given away as a friend's birthday gift. Too bad forgortten to take a picture. This time the cake was over baked. I set the temperature to 180°C. So you can see a small crack on the top and the colour was quite dark. Anyway the cake turned out still in one piece. he..he..The texture of this cake is moist and soft. I don't really like this cake. The taste of the cheese is very very mild, and the orange flavour is also very mild. Maybe in my next baking of this cake I will add orange paste to enhance the flavour. Otherwise it is too bland for me. Tastewise, I still prefer lemon cheesecake. I like to eat very rich cheese cake for example American Cheese Cake, New York Cheese Cake and others. For those who likes only faint hint of cheese flavour, I will recommend you to try this. You will like it.

Kitchen notes:
* wrap aluminium foil completely around the bottom and halfway up the sides of the pan.
* Cover cheesecake with aluminium foil loosely when half way baked (about 20-30 mins) to prevent cheesecake over browning.
* The cake will have pulled away the edges of the pan. Remove cheesecake from oven and carefully run a small knife around the edge of the pan to loosen any bits that might stick to the pan.
