How to Make New York Cheesecake

- Grease and flour a 10" springform pan. Pour batter into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Leave the cake in the oven and turn the oven off. Leave in the oven for 2 more hours. You can use a water bath, but be sure to wrap aluminum foil around the bottom of the pan.
- Lat cool completely on a wire rack and then refrigerate.
