Oh my, this sounds so exotic and I see another cheesecake in my near future. Love Orange! Thanks for posting this recipe.

This looks delicious. Just to clarify, do you put 2 cups of hot water into a larger pan and then set the springform pan into it while baking? You don't have trouble with the water seeping into the springform at all do you?
