This is our bake #29 over at The Home Bakers (THB), we are almost halfway through the book "Coffee Cakes". I have not made nor eaten a cheesecake for ages and am looking forward to this bake selected by Charmaine of Mimi Bakery House for this week's baking together at THB.
Just as described in the book, the "White chocolate adds its rich flavour to this snowy cheesecake and a dusting of cocoa powder proclaims its chocolate status. It makes a spectacular presentation on a pool of raspberrry sauce, garnished with whole berries".
I've used Lindt white chocolate and Philadelphia cream cheese, with these combination, the cake is so creamy and smooth, almost melts in the mouth! It is served with raspberry sauce, and since I have some frozen mixed berries coulis, I used that instead.
I've made only half a recipe and used a 7" springform pan, which makes the cake rather low in height.
Served with the mixed berries coulis and sprinkled with cocoa powder over the top, is a treat indeed.
