Chef Beni - how long do you bake the cheesecake in the water bath? I notice you say to let it set at room temp for one hour, but do you also bake for 1 hour first?
I really want to try this. My husband is Puerto Rican and talks about loving Flan as a child. He says it's hard to find good flan here in Tennessee. I thought the cheesecake recipe sounded easy to do.
