Hello! Welcome to the fourth edition of Kitchen Projects, a recipe development and cooking journal by me, Nicola Lamb. I’m a pastry chef, recipe developer and bakery consultant based in London. For this week only, the Kitchen Projection newsletter is arriving with you MIDWEEK in honour of Thanksgiving. Which, BTW, is tomorrow, if you didn’t know. I wanted to take this opportunity to share a very special Thanksgiving/generally autumnally festive dessert with you:
I’ve made this 3-4 times now over the past couple years. <35 minutes is definitely the correct way- it’s perfectly smooth and creamy. If you want to make a smaller cheesecake, I’ve had some luck using a 1 quart saucepan (5.5” wide, 3” deep) and filling with ~1/3 of the recipe. I did 35 minutes in the oven with the recipe as written, and it was a little past perfect in the center, but pretty close and the doneness gradient was such that I believe perfection is possible in the smaller size. I’m going to try 30 minutes next time.
Best baking blog ever
If I put it like this. If the OG cheese cake is as good as this I need the other recipe. Please please share it with us.
Love this! Would you share the OG cheese cake recipe?
