    Next wrap the base of the tin with foil and place it in a deep roasting tin then pour in some water to about 2cm up the side of the tin. Bake for 30 minutes. Then open the oven door and sprinkle over the crumble topping and bake for a further 40 minutes. The cheesecake should still wobble slightly in the centre.
