I couldnt get soured cream in the supermarket, can I use light creme fraiche in a baked cheesecake recipe do you think?

Absolutely, I find it very hard to get sour cream here, so tend to always use creme fraiche by default now.

I never buy sour cream I just use single cream and add lemon juice.

I would. I treat the two entirely interchangeably.

Mmmm, baked cheesecake!

mmm, love cheesecake. have recently rediscovered it, and have now got dh and ds-s hooked. today i made a mango and coconut (milk) baked cheesecake. no sour cream or creme fraiche in it, but a little can of coconut milk (175ml?). worked fine and was absolutely delicious! even my d-dad had two portions, after just stating that he doesn't really do puddings.

Honeybunny that sounds yum- DH loves mango so I would love to make it. Please could you post the recipe if you have time? Thanks

Mine was the white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake on the bbc good food website (sorry on phone and can't link!). It was delicious and very moreish, although the top cracked a little which spoiled presentation but certainly didn't affect the taste.
