I've looked at various recipes over the years, so I have a vague idea in my mind what ingredients are needed. Mr Ayak bought a large quantity of cream cheese and two cartons of yogurt when he popped home on Saturday, so I was suddenly inspired to make a cheesecake.
Now..as is usual with me.. whenever I decide I want to make something, I've never got all the ingredients. I made the decision NOT to search the internet for a recipe, because I knew that every recipe I found would require something that I just didn't have. I thought...I'll just go ahead and make it anyway...what's the worst that can happen? It could end up in the bin or the dogs? No big deal!
In a large bowl I put around 500 grams of cream cheese and about the same of low-fat natural yogurt. I added some lemon juice and another big dollop of honey (I have a vague recollection that one should use sugar but I thought honey would be better). I then added 3 large eggs and whisked the mixture throughly.
I poured it into the tin and baked in the oven for about 45/50 mins..I'm not sure of the temperature because I kept watching and adjusting it and hoping it would be OK!
This is the cheesecake straight from the oven:
