Sometimes your best laid plans do not come to fruition. I had great ideas for this Yuzu Cheesecake to make it New year party worthy, But work got in the way and I barely had any time left to bake the cake, chill it completely and then decorate. So here we are with a plain looking yuzu cheesecake that tastes divine but has not been glazed yet.
I have been making the yuzu cheesecake for a while now. It’s just the added punch of yuzu that takes it up a notch from a lemon cheesecake. And lemon used to be my favorite kind of cheesecake until I discovered yuzu.
A great cheesecake doesn’t have to be fussy. It just has to have the right balance of flavors. And it is not at all fussy to make. Most often people say that the cake will split on top or texture won’t be right. My only tip is that keep all ingredients room temperature before baking. I don’t often say this. Not even for my very fussy cakes. But for cheesecakes, it just has to be room temperature everything.
