This recipe has been doing the rounds for years and has only improved with tweaks. Top tips for this one are;
Use a tin that will fit into the Varoma easily. This makes for a deeper cheesecake, still serves the same amount of people and looks better.
Place a fork, or a set of chopsticks underneath the tin inside the Varoma to steam, it allows better steam circulation.
Mop the top of the cooked cheesecake with a piece of paper towel to soak up the residual liquid that drips on top of it whilst steaming.
Don't think it won't set solid, it will. You just have to allow the time required.
