Author Notes

Back when I was a kid, my mum was blessed with this cheesecake recipe. I am not sure where or whom did she get it from but I was lucky that she did. Each time she made it, I would eat slices after slices of it. I remember there was once when I had 5 slices in a day. Since then, I probably have had kilos of this cheesecake.
Naturally, this became the first cake that I learnt to bake. I have always thought that cheesecakes would be really difficult to bake but actually, it’s really simple. The ideal cheesecake will be smooth and rich, heavy yet easy to swallow. The adjectives used to describe the taste of cheesecake are usually hunger provoking. Whatever word that you use to describe your cheesecake, the ideal/perfect cheesecake is one that brings a decadent finish to any meal. —Domenico Tan
