Nigella’s London Cheesecake

This recipe from How to Be a Domestic Goddess: Baking and the Art of Comfort Cookingis one of my favorites.

London Cheesecake

It’s very dense and the extra egg yolks give it a bold, cornflower-yellow color. It’s also hard to screw up. Just make sure you don’t over-beat the eggs (I stir mine in with a spoon) and use the water bath.  I made my own crust using leftover sugar cookies, but a graham cracker crust would have been better.

    Hmmm, I have this book – I’ll have to try this recipe next time a cheesecake is in order – one day I’ll make one that doesn’t crack.

    Mona, the sugar cookies worked, but you might want to add nuts or something the crust. The cookies and butter alone were a little on the soggy side. No one complained, though!

    Are you aware of Joanne Fluke’s Cheesecake recipe? It’s from her novel Cherry Cheescake murder. i am curious about it because it calls for mayonaise.

    I made this twice and it is excellent. This is now my go to cheesecake recipe. I even tried to lighten it… 4 Tbs butter, light cream cheese and sour cream and it turned out great! Love it with fresh strawberries and bluesberries.
