It’s been a long time since I last baked. For the last couple of months, I have been very busy playing “travel agent” for my family (See my other blog for details if you are interested) and being a chauffeur for my little girl. Who knew that a 3 year old could have so many activities! Ever so often, I would look longingly at my very long to-bake list but alas, my tired body keeps saying no. So the long list goes back into my recipe folder.
Then last week I finally had a chance to cross one recipe of my to-bake list. It was Lil’ C’s last day of preschool and I had promised to bring a dessert to the year-end picnic. I decided to make something that I have been wanting to bake for a long time – the Chocolate Cheesecake.
What does the cheese layer remind you of? Doesn’t it look like a seahorse? Haha… It was not intentional but somehow the cheesecake layer sank and formed this cute shape. I guess I didn’t do a good job layering the cake. Even so, the cake turned out really nice. I like the cake slightly chilled just because of the cheesecake layer. The recipe can be found here.
