So… while I was at Safeway picking up a turkey and havarti panini for lunch on Monday, I also went to the bakery section. I love sweets and all things dessert, so I just had to check out the cakes.
Black forest cake, carrot cake, fruit flan, Oreo cake, Boston cream pie…
And then I saw… gluten free cheesecake.
This is a big deal to me because:
- I love cheesecake.
- I enjoy gluten free food, especially gluten free desserts.
Needless to say, I bought a platter of gluten free cheesecake in four flavours: New York, raspberry swirl, triple chocolate, and chocolate chip. I wanted to try them all, but my gut instinct told me to try raspberry first. I was pleasantly surprised. The crust, which was made of walnut, had a nice hint of nutmeg and just the right amount of sweetness. It held up well, but what surprised me was how well it worked with the cream cheese filling, which was creamy, rich, smooth, sweet, and slightly tangy. This was not the best cheesecake I’ve ever had, but it’s very good for a gluten free cheesecake.
What is your favourite cheesecake?
