A cheesecake without a water bath, no fancy equipment and the method literally tells you to burn it. Yet it has a creamy interior and a robust dark color on the outside making for an easy celebration cake for 1.
If your oven has the heating on top separately then put the heat on, on the top and bottom. This will ensure the cheesecake gets colored and baked simultaneously. Be careful if you are using a gas oven as the fire shouldn’t burn the baking paper.
