Epic Failure
« on: November 22, 2009, 01:09:27 PM »
Tried to make a New York Cheesecake today. Epic failure at it's best. Tastes great, looks like crap. Guess I need to get a thermometer and check my oven temp. Looks like it cooked way too hot or I just made up a crap recipe. Gonna try it again but with a water bath next time.

I cook and I brew down on the bayou

Who cares what it looks like as long as it tastes good! Smother it in raspberries, cherries, or strawberries and serve it up!

+1 does not look bad at all. Serve it up.

unless it is raw inside or something. Maybe it is the picture but it looks kinda thick and tall. Was that the problem.
Beer, its whats for dinner.

This thread needs Weaze's rib pic, I think.

But seriously that looks good.  I mean, its cheesecake anyway!

Tweaked the recipe and baked in a water bath tonight. Came out a whole lot better. Still need to work on it but I am getting closer. I still think my oven get hotter than I think and have to verify that.
