A question about a recipe: Cappuccino Cheesecake


I have a question about step 5 on the recipe "Cappuccino Cheesecake" from boulangere. It says:

"Crack eggs into a bowl. With mixer running on lowest speed, tip one at a time into mixer bowl. This is your emulsion; take your time and allow each to be fully incorporated before adding the next. After all eggs have been added, once again stop mixer, drop bowl and scrape very thoroughly around sides and bottom then raise bowl and mix to blend what you scraped loose."

For this and the rest of steps, is it with the paddle too? When do I need to use the paddle and when do I need to use the other one? THANKS!

We used the paddle the entire time. Good luck!

Yup! Use the paddle for the whole thing. If you use the whip, you'll risk incorporating too much air, and thereby causing the cheesecake to crack while baking.
