This recipe was written by my husband's mother, Loyce. She died when he was 12 and when his dad remarried it was passed on to his new mom, Norma. She made this for his birthday every year until her death. It is his favorite cheesecake and mine too. Maybe all the love it represents adds more flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family has. It is very light and airy!
