If the path to a man’s heart goes through his stomach then I think desserts are to be found on this path often, at least to my husband’s heart. With Valentine’s Day 2 sleeps away, I think it is only apt that I share this totally decadent, yet ridiculously easy dessert recipe with you. Seriously, there is nothing complicated about this recipe……a few store bought ingredients and voila, you have a sure way to win your loved one’s heart…..
My husband is particularly fond of ice-cream or frozen desserts, although while typing this, I remembered that he also loves cheesecake, lemon meringue pie and fridge tarts…… not hard to please as you can see! Imagine if I could combine a few of his favorite desserts in one. I can just see him devouring this dessert, loving every minute of it. While February is the month of love and Tuesday 14 February is Valentine’s Day, why not spoil the love in your life while at the same time spoiling yourself with as little time in the kitchen as possible.
When making these individual cheesecakes, you can either use metal stacking rings or you can ask you dad or your husband to cut clean plumbing pipe in 10-15 cm rounds for you OR you use cardboard and baking paper and make your own moulds like I have done. Simply cut 30 x 10cm strips of cardboard and baking paper and lay the baking paper strip on the cardboard strip and wrap it around a small bottle with the the desired diameter that you want your cheesecake to be, securing it with a piece of string. Place all the moulds on a smallish tray that will fit into the fridge. Remember, the moulds have no bottoms, the tray forms the bottom so the cheesecakes must stay on the tray until they have set.
Before we go on to the recipe, I have to reveal a little secret……promise not to tell anyone? The secret is this: There is not a drop or an ounce of cheese in this cheesecake, yet everyone at my table thought there was.
