  • Preheat oven to 325°F if using a 9-inch silver springform pan (or to 300°F if using a dark nonstick 9-inch springform pan). Mix graham crumbs, 2 Tbsp. sugar and the butter; press firmly onto bottom pan.
  • Beat cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, the honey and flour in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add orange peel and juice; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed after each addition just until blended; pour over crust.
  • Bake 1 hour or until centre is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim of pan. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight. Drizzle with 2 Tbsp. honey just before serving. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.

How to Avoid Cracked Cheesecakes

After adding the eggs, be careful not to overbeat the batter since this can cause the baked cheesecake to crack.

    You have to really like honey to like this cheescake. My husband and I were both very excited to try this one, but after one bite each, we actually gave the whole cheesecake away because we didn't like it at all. The flavours did not blend well.

    This was my first attempt at cheesecake, and it turned out nice and light. It was a big hit with my family. I then made it for my co-workers and they absolutely loved it. They're still raving about it! I used a 10 inch springform pan and the recipe filled it. I would prefer a more exact measurement of juice - oranges vary so much in size and how juicy they are. I used 2 oranges.

    4 packages of cream cheese were too many. More orange juice was needed as well as more honey. Very heavy.
