I've never really been that keen on cheesecake, something about it just never appealed to me. With this in mind I was planning on giving this week a miss but in a fit of utter boredom I threw caution to the wind and decided to give it a shot. Unfortunately, and not down to a lack of searching, I simply couldn't find course cornmeal, if I'm honest I'm not even sure I know what it is. So, my cheesecake is made with a plain digestive crust and rather than making the blueberry sauce I decided to bake them right into the cake. Another obstacle I hit was my lack of a Bain Marie, in other words my roasting pan isn't big enough so I reduced the cooking time by 30 minutes and just stuck it in the oven. I actually prefer the look of a baked cheesecake to those done in a Bain Marie, it's those delightfully golden sides that do it for me.
The result was absolutely delicious and has totally changed my previous opinion on the humble cheesecake. I'll defiantly be baking this one again, trying different fruits according to the season.
