Hi,

So, Vanessa made the German Cheesecake from the recipe posted above.  It required a bit more time in the oven than the recipe called for (maybe an extra 8-10 minutes) to get the top properly browned.  It's in the fridge now, will try it tomorrow.  Yum!

The cutting will be today, so see you all soon! :)  This was the first cheesecake Vanessa's ever made, so she's very pleased with the outcome.  I'm impressed as well.  Also, we still have a lot of quark left, so, she might just have to make her second cheesecake very soon.

Tell vanessa she did well and we are all proud of her cheesecake. It is very easy to mess up a cheese cake!

Thanks from Vanessa to everyone!  We tasted it this morning, but remember, cheesecake is not just for breakfast anymore! :)  It is very good.  I'm afraid the cut job was a bit messy, but here's a shot of the interior.  Presentation could be improved, but the taste more than makes up for it.

Looks delicious! Also looks like we went to the same class for hacking a cake. I always mutilate cakes and pies when I cut them - don't know why. Except that I often use this little knife with a 3 inch blade for doing it and it's never long enough but I do it anyway.

Lovely Jeff!  I gained two pounds just drooling at it!  Sometime before the year is out I just gotta do a cheese cake with Chevre.  I've used it for ice cream and I'll bet it would be great for cheesecake as well.

Thanks!  Oh, and we didn't eat all that cut between the two of us (just so you know).  Some was given to the neighbors too!

REALLY! They say you can get the ladies to do almost anything for chocolate but I really think cheesecake works better!
