the lime curd i made recently tastes delicious on bread and the likes, but what else can i make with it? that’s when i thought of the great cheese cake i had in bali – they always had it in different flavors and topped with different fruit purée. i had it in mind for a while and decided on the no bake version. this one’s a bit fluffier, if you want a denser cheese cake, try leaving out the cream and instead add 1 egg. bake in oven (170°) for about 30 minutes – attention: i don’t guarantee that this works, since i haven’t tried it myself. but i’m pretty sure that it works.
this time of year there are a lot of parties, so of course we also had a christmas party with my girls. a nice, relaxed evening with good food and lots of laughter. once again i was responsible for dessert. since i just read the special edition of lecker “christmas”, i chose the hugo cheese cake. the white cream with the green mint sugar looks just like a winter wonderland. and combined with the prosecco it’s a nice twist and just fitting for a girls night.

the other day i was invited to a thanksgiving dinner – a huge turkey with 10 kg and all the sides and stuffing you could ask for. it was delicious and a really nice evening. of course i also brought something i opted for dessert. since i just baked all my christmas cookies that week i wasn’t that keen on spending much time in the kitchen. that’s when i remembered an episode of nigella lawson where she made a nutella cheese cake. after a quick google search i found the recipe (slightly changed it)- it was really quick to make, tasted yummy but definitely isn’t the best option if you wanna loose weight, what with one full glass of nutella 😉
finally i had time to bake something, it’s been quite a while. so i read through my cook books, magazines etc in order to find a new and exciting recipe. in the end i decided for these raspberry cheese cake brownies from cynthia barcomi (slightly changed). in any case i could bake all of her recipes from “let’s bake”. the combination of chocolaty brownies, lemony-vanilla cheese cake and raspberries is ideal. i just can’t say no to the union of two of my favorite cakes 🙂 i hope you like them as much as i do.
