Cheesecake with Bitter Orange Marmalade

Cheesecake is one of my childhood favorites. My mom got the recipe from her German friend as “Philadelphia kuchen” back in 1993. Since then I have had a vast variety of this sweet and each time it was very delicious, this version is with bitter orange marmalade. Enjoy 🙂
