New York Style Cheesecake

Recipe adapted from here.

I omitted graham cracker crust and simply made this.

1kg cream cheese, room temperature
200g sugar
35g all purpose flour
5 large eggs, room temperature
80ml heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C with rack in center of oven.

For the crust:
1) Make the crust according to the directions.

For the filling:
1) With a mixer on low speed, beat together the cream cheese, sugar, and flour. Beat until smooth (about 2 minutes). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well (about 30 seconds) after each addition. Add the whipping cream, lemon zest, vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. 

2) Remove the crust from the refrigerator and pour in the filling. Place the cheesecake pan on a larger baking pan and place in the oven.

3) Bake for 15 minutes and then lower the oven temperature to 120 degrees C and continue to bake for about another 60 - 90 minutes or until firm and only the center of the cheesecake looks a little wet and wobbly. (I baked my cheesecake for 60 minutes). Remove from oven and place on a wire rack.

4) Let cool completely and refrigerate overnight.
