Hi, I like to give home baked goods as gifts and especially love individual cakes as there are so many fabulous wrappers and baking cups available. I wonder if the general sponge cakes in 'Domestic Goddess' and Nigella's other books would be suitable to cook in muffin tins and, if so, are there any adaptations needed and what sort of timing change would you recommend. Many thanks

Hi team, For a while now I've been looking for the perfect cheesecake recipe. The thing is, they're all so different. The major thing I'm unsure about is whether to bake it or not. Can you explain the difference and which is the best way? Many thanks! Angela
