This is a great recipe idea especially for those of you who don't trust yourself around a regular sized cheese cake. It's very simple and you don't have to worry about water seeping into you cake.
Great because you can make any of your 8 or 9-inch cheese cakes this way by cutting your recipe in 1/2 . Or if you like use the regular recipe only make it in 2 loaf pans. Eat one and freeze one for later.
I will post other recipes later- so look for them soon! Enjoy.
Try one using orange instead of lemon.So good!
