The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge.
I would have a photo here - but once again, the Daring Bakers challenge went to Care Group and the camera didn't. It was desimated by the time the night was over! I chose to make a turtle cheesecake - actually, I did a turtle topping. I made the cheesecake as Jenny gave the recipe (see her blog, link above). I did leave out the optional liqueur and I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust. I used chopped pecans, mini chocolate chips and, due to time constraints, prepared caramel sauce for the topping. This thing was EASY to make and I will definitely be making it again, trying some of the other ideas that Daring Bakers gave for flavors. I will also say, it definitely needs to chill overnight - be sure to plan for that!!
Also, instead of using a springform pan I used a foil casserole pan - this was due to the water bath (not wanting soggy crust) and due to the fact that I was hauling this thing to Care Group. It filled the pan, it was delicious. I have a weakness for cheesecake. I want to make this again!
