Put your cake into the oven and cook for 55 minutes. If your cheesecake starts to puff up, turn off the oven and let the cake cool for a little in the oven.
Take your cheesecake out of the oven and leave to cool slowly, then put it in the refrigerator to set for at least 4 hours to make a perfect cheesecake. Tip: Cover your cheesecake with glad wrap.
Once your cake has set, take it out of the refrigerator and serve it up as a delicious dessert for your family, friends and you!
