Happy birthday mom! Thanks for reading my blog every morning as soon as you wake up. Thanks for emailing me my mistakes, missing words or wrong spelling. My mom is the techie of her generation. She’s an expert at texting, has her own email address, facebook account and is an addict at bejeweled. I love you mom! Enjoy your cheesecake! By the way she said she loves the cheesecake! Woohoo.
This baked cheesecake is not as heavy as your regular New York style cheesecake but it’s definitely more substantial than the dreaded cheesecake with gelatin which I dislike a lot.
queso de bola cheesecake
What makes this cheesecake so special is the presence of tiny bits of salty queso de bola or Edam cheese.When you take a bite it first tastes sweet then you taste the salty bits of cheese then the finish is sweet again when you end with the muscovado whipped cream.
It is this complex journey of flavors that my taste buds experience that makes this one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever eaten.
Mara is best known for her Gateau de Crepes in Vanilla, Low Sugar Vanilla, Chocolate and Nutella. I’ve tried them and they’re good too. But her cheesecake is my favorite so far.
The cake was made with 2 layers of ultra soft chiffon cake with a thick layer of vanilla whipped cream nestled in between. It was topped with a crunchy sugar layer thus the name. It was a fabulous and welcome change from the usual chocolate cakes.
