Once you have done it, using a scoop place the cheese mixture into each bun case. 

Bake for 20 minutes at 180C. 

Open slightly the oven door 3 minutes before the end of baking and bake like that till the end. This will allow baking to finish, reduce steam and prevent the cheesecake from sinking. Alternatively, turn off the oven 3 minutes before the end of baking time.

After the cooking time elapsed, open the oven doors fully. Leave the cheesecakes in the oven for about 5 minutes so that they do not sink further.

Remove the cheesecakes from the baking tray and let them cool completely.  Put it in the fridge and chill for about 2 hours.  

Before serving decorate with whipped cream and crushed lotus biscuits.
