There must be a day, week or month designated to recognize almost every one of our favorite foods. At least one compilation declares March as Cheesecake Month, but I guess it really doesn’t matter much. If you are a cheesecake lover, you can celebrate cheesecake any month of the year.
We’ve talked before about rich, delicious cream cheese and ways it can enrich a variety of recipes from a simply topped muffin to an elegant cake. For a classic recipe, cheesecake is surprisingly simple to make. Basically, the combination of cream cheese and eggs does the trick, but the addition of innumerable compatible ingredients brings a cheesecake to life. The cream cheese flavor melds beautifully with fruits, nuts, chocolate, caramel and even savory ingredients.
The recent cheesecake trend incorporates a cheesecake layer into classic recipes like red velvet and strawberry cakes to create a delicious new balance of flavors and textures. White Chocolate Cheesecake Carrot Cake is the perfect combination. The spicy, moist carrot cake paired with white chocolate cheesecake is amazing. Creating this recipe takes a little time, but each component is easy and fun to make. The cake layers may be frozen and the cheesecake layer refrigerated until you are ready to put it all together. The final result is a show-stopping beauty your family and friends will love!
