One of my resolutions was to bake a baked good every month, but more specifically I wanted to bake a new baked good that I hadn’t cooked before every month. SO like, I’ve made brownies before, but that wouldn’t count because I’ve made brownies before. Which, I’ve been craving brownies so I probably will make them soon 😄
I really wanted to know how to make my favorite dessert of all time, cheesecake! So I hunted down a recipe, but thought it was too big for what I wanted to do (I honestly can’t bring myself to use 2 packages of cream cheese for one dessert, that’s cray) plus, I live with three people, so a cheesecake that big would be a lot to eat. I luckily found this eight inch cheesecake recipe, and tried it, to good success! I say good and not great, because for some reason one of the sides hasn’t fully set, and is still a little custard-y after a few days. I wanted to look up why that happened, but I feel like it had to do with the sour cream topping part. When I pulled it out of the oven the second time, I put the cake on an oven mit I didn’t realize was on the counter and some of the sour cream part spilled over. Either that, or I didn’t mix the egg in fully? Who knows. I’ve been eating it anyways, but it’s slowly been setting while one side set overnight. Super annoying! But the one set side has a really good texture, it’s just the middle part that is all semi-goopy still. Ok, when I looked up the recipe to link here, it had ¼ cup of milk as an ingredient! I swear it wasn’t there when I first looked at it, so I wonder if that would make a difference O.O this is so baffling, I know I didn’t skip over it!
Either way, it’s really easy to make and I’m excited I can make it! Now I don’t have to spend tons of money on a cheesecake if I don’t want to 😄
I used a pre-made crust, so next time I want to make my own with some cookies or something. But the pre-made gram cracker crust tastes delicious with the filling, and it gave me an idea to another dessert I want to try that me and my brother sort of just made up on the fly haha. Can you tell I like baking way more than cooking? I mean I cook too but Baking is a lot funner both to eat and to make, it’s really creative for me!
