  3. Add the heavy cream and continue mixing until well combined. (it is possible to blend the cheesecake batter for smoother texture and lump free).
  4. Pour the cheesecake batter over the crust and spread it evenly.
  5. Bake the cheesecake in a preheated oven at 180C (356F) for 45 minutes, or until the center is almost set and golden brown.
  6. Remove the baked cheesecake cream from the oven and leave it to cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour, then cover it with a plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight.
