The other night, that itch came upon me, you know, the it h to bake something… It was nighttime, after 6pm I’m sure, so I procrastinated, hoping the itch would die, or that no ideas would come to me….no such luck..I realized I had no flour and not enough butter for a cake, so I thought all was well….wrong again.
As my brain ran over the contents of my fridge, from the comfort of my chaise..it came to me, I had a packet of cream cheese in the fridge, and chocolate ganache in the freezer..yes I keep it in the freeze, I made way too much, and it keeps well in there, plus I get to scrape off bits to make hot chocolate when the mood takes hold.
Ok I have never used a recipe for cheesecake, I generally stick to 1 egg per packet of cream cheese, add a bit of sugar, taste, add more if I need to, add citrus if I need less. That’s pretty much it. I also had a pack of digestive biscuits, so all was well.
Did I mention that it wasn’t a full pack of cream cheese…yep, but that didn’t stop me. So how was I to make this, it’s not like you can halve an egg… Ding ding ding, just use the whites..and even so I didn’t use the entire egg white, the rest I put in the fridge, and used to make French toast the next day.
So anyway, this is what happened:
