Hi,

do you bake in bath, or just dump the pan into the oven? How do you lift the cake out nicely? Thanks.

Lesley, happy baking :) Tell me how yours turn out.

Blurmummy, you are most welcome :)

Kevin, thank you.

Ummi,susah lah nak post. Sampai rumah you dah busuk. Tak apa when I balik I make some for you :)

Anon, I just bake it as it is and I am able to lift it up easily because I line the pan with aluminium foil. Just make sure the foil it bigger then the pan.

Lina, thanks for stopping by.

Precious Moment, thank you. Your blog is wonderful too :)

Pinky, get the oven soon and you cake bake it whenever you want :)

BBO, thank you.

Kath, this cheese cake is pretty light because I used low fat cheese, milk and little sugar. Yes, is fresh blueberries :)

i tried this cake but it was not 'that sweet' for me(i should add more sugar in the future). so, i made butterscotch sauce from your recipe and ate with this cheesecake. it's just a perfect combination. thanks for your recipes ;)
