April Daring Baker's Challenge

Today's your lucky day, dear readers, because I have 3 more papers snapping at my ass, and not enough time, so you get to see many delicious photos without having to sieve through [much of] my ramblings and rants.


I kept it simple, as my body demanded no nonsense delivery of fats and chocolate to my fried brain cells.


There's a walnut-digestive base, which is simply out-of-this-world, REALLY.

A vanilla cheesecake layer, which is really great, even if I didn't use to be a cheesecake fan.

And finally, the piece de resistance, a layer of caramel dark chocolate ganache. Can I say YUM?!


The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey's Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge.


Thank you, Jenny! This is truly an outstanding recipe and challenge, which bowled over even a non-cheesecake lover!


Also, folks, I've got no time to type out the recipe, so please get it at Jenny's site. Trust me, if you want a cheesecake recipe, this is IT.

Sorry to hear that you have three papers snapping but this cheesecake will dull the senses for a while. Your wonderful creation sounds so delicious especially the caramel dark chocolate ganache layer I am drooling seeing the fantastic pictures. Cheers from Australia Audax

WOW. Your cheesecake is one of the most perfect ones I've seen all day, out of anybody's. The ganache and the chopped nuts look SO good, and the shot of the bite with the two layers... this a cheesecake I could see myself making (and eating!)

When I saw your cheesecake in the DBK forum, my first thought was a Milky Way bar had morphed into a beautiful cheesecake! Gorgeous and mouth watering!

I hope you got it through the end of the school year. The cheesecake looks divine, and I'm glad it took you over to the dark side, hehe.

Thanks for being a part of the challenge. It is taking me a while to get to everyone, but I'm glad you were a part of it.
