last weekend i attempted to make a cheesecake. attempted being the key word. i’ve made several successful cheesecakes in the past (pumpkin and coconut cream), but thought it would be nice to make a classic cheesecake with a sauce. by the end of the night i was in tears, out of cream cheese and sugar, cursing martha stewart’s name and the cake ended up in the garbage. after a post-baking trip to the gym to run away my woes and another visit to the grocery store, i pulled myself up by the bootstraps and tried again. jamie oliver can do no wrong in my book and his classic cheesecake was a success.
paired with a port wine and blueberry sauce, it was a hit!
