A homemade brownie is topped with a white chocolate cheesecake and adorned with more chocolate and sliced almonds. An easy dessert to assemble with the wow-factor in full-force. It's a very rich dessert yet is somehow laced with good health. From almonds to dates to cacao powder you can find all that and more. This is a #plantbased/#vegan, #glutenfree and #oilfree dessert yet you'd never ever know it. I spent time perfecting the "perfect" cheesecake and this is my take. It is the Luscious Cheesecake from "The Artistic Vegan Cookbook: An Alchemical Transformation" dressed up as I was celebrating my birthday!
I created this dessert for my birthday, celebrated yesterday and ohhh my, was it a treat.
Here are some fun random notes to myself in case I shall forget along this winding journey and perhaps you can glean something from it. These are in no order. Enjoy!
