TWD - Low and Luscious Chocolate Cheesecake
I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas, and are not over sweets yet! That's because this week's Tuesday with Dorie features Dorie's Low and Luscious Chocolate Cheesecake, chosen by our host, the Tea Lady of Tea and Scones.
I think that "low and luscious", although alliterative, is a misnomer, because with three blocks of cream cheese, it was rather a high cheesecake. No matter - with a cheesecake that looks as good as this, who is going to quibble over something as trivial as a name?
I made this for the birthday morning tea of Caroline in Finance. I have to say that I found the fundamentally tangy cheesecake flavour a little odd with the chocolate, but perhaps it is something that would grow on me. I only tasted a tiny sliver, so if I had eaten a whole slice, the flavours may have melded better for me.
It was an easy cheesecake to make - no dramas at any stage, with a simple baked graham cracker crust, and the final product did not crack on top.
