I believe I have tried making a cheesecake before. I don't remember the outcome of that cake, so not sure how to approach this Baked Cheesecake. Perhaps not remembering is for the best, now I can go into this baking adventure with fresh eyes and no past experiences clouding my vision. Yep, I much prefer my self-doubt to be pure and unpolluted. Three cheers for self-doubt! Hip-Hip....huh? My self-doubt is feeling confident. I may be watching too much Dr. Who, but that sounds like a paradox.
My only concern (for the moment) is that I'm not a huge fan of almond flavouring. Remember this cake. (Which would have been good if it wasn't for that almond butter frosting....shiver.) So now I'm wondering if I could perhaps substitute something else for the almonds. Hmm?
Oh and there's another issue....I'm caked out. Seriously, I didn't even know that was a thing, until it happened to me. All the talk show hosts are clamoring to have me on their shows to discuss this newest and oddest of conditions. Caked out. I imagine there won't be a dry eye in the audience when they hear about my condition.
So, we made the Peach upside down cake here, then the Milk High Chocolate cake here. And there was also another cake that I made (but can't discuss just yet). And finally, I made this cake for my birthday. Isn't it lovely?! It is the Whiteout Cake from Baked New Frontiers in Baking.
So what's a gal to do, when she's all caked out? Make a cake? Seriously? You're going to make a cake?? I dunno. Wait a minute. Did you just make up this condition of being "caked out", so that you can go rogue? What? That's crazy talk. This is a real condition! And putting quotes around it doesn't make it less real!!
I have had some time to think about it (since I put in this page break, and I have (almost) certainly decided not to make the cheesecake. There I said it! Whew, what a relief to get that albatross off my back.
And now for something completely different.....and roguish.
|Cake for breakfast? Baked Boys say yes!|
Next, the eggs and sugars get whisked together. Again, gotta love a cake that doesn't require the kitchenaid! Another spoiler: I did need the kitchenaid to make the frosting.
Finished cake (sans frosting). The small crater in the middle is where I poked it. Just wanted to see if it was done...umm...it was.
Frosted and already cut.

Good to the last drop.
