Hi Kitchen Corner,

Thanks, don't get dishearten give it another try.

Mine also has some hairline cracks at the edge but during cooling it started to close up. This time, I switched my oven mood to bottom heating with fan and this work and it minimize the cracks on the cheesecake. However I don't really bother about the crack as the cheesecake is very soft and yummy.:)

Hi Iee,

You can substitute cake flour with plain flour but not self-raising flour.

I don't have cake flour/superfine flour, so instead, i used the same amount of cornflour and all purpose flour. It works as well for the light plain lemon cheesecake as well as this choc version. So happy=)
