Philadelphia Cheesecake of the Year Contest

Cheesecake is one of those desserts that you either love or hate. I spent the good part of my childhood thinking that I hated it, but once I started making it myself, I knew just how far that was from the truth. I am a self-proclaimed lover of all of the richest desserts you can possibly shove into your mouth and cheesecake fits the bill perfectly. My most recent eureka moment was combining two of my favourite desserts, Nanaimo bars and cheesecake to create none other than a Nanaimo bar cheesecake. Hello! It has the perfect balance of chocolate and cream cheese to make your taste buds content for days. Well maybe not days – maybe only hours before you need another slice.

    This cheesecake looks amazing! I love nanaimo bars – a tiny slice at a time. I can only imagine how awesome the flavor must be in a cheesecake. Interestingly enough, my favorite cheesecake still is German cheese cake, which doesn’t even use cream cheese but quark. It’s a soft cheese curd that’s hard to find in North America. Kind of similar to ricotta, but pureed cottage cheese is actually the best substitution.

      I definitely did enter, thanks Nancy! What I like about this in comparison to normal Nanaimo bars is that the filling isn’t sickly sweet, as is inevitable when you mix icing sugar into a paste.
