New York Cheesecake

 Actually did not want to post this up because the picture was not well taken. It was a night bake and I had to leave the cake in the fridge overnight. So the picture was taken in the wee hours of the morning when I am still extremely sleepy but had to cut the cake for HB to take away as his breakfast. Luckily the cake was good and HB likes it very much.
