Pumpkin Cheesecake

This month's theme in the Crazy Cooking Challenge is "Cheesecake". The posting date was 7 August, which incidentally is today. Leaving my post for the last minute, I was absolutely confident of making my Cheesecake on Monday which would have left me enough time to write, edit and post the recipe on Tuesday, the 7th, dot on time for the challenge. To me, it seemed perfect, and everything seemed to be going as planned but unfortunately fate was not on my side. My son fell sick with a viral and all my plans
