Add an extra egg yolk. The color will be even more beautiful, and the texture so silky. And don't ever make it with flour!

I agree with boulangere, the texture of cheesecake is significantly silkier without a binder like flour. If you want a firmer cheesecake I would imagine something like tapioca starch would work--I know it does for my non-cheesecake custards.
