Hi delia,

Dear Aunty

I will like to try out this cake. Do I need to use water bath method? I am using 8 inch spring form, do I have to cut down the ingredients?

Hi Janice,

Yes you need water bath for this cheesecake.

for 8" - use 3/4 of the recipe.

Hi yochana auntie:)

Just wondering what Bain Marie means. One of the comments said that it meant water bath. Does that mean that we have to bake it in a water bath like put the cake in a pan of water and stick it in the oven? Or do i just bake it normally?
Btw, your site looks awesome:D
Please reply! :D
