Another day another cake. That’s going to be my new motto from now on. I know that my latest post was about baking, but I just can’t help myself. I love baking too much. The other day I was looking for a few recipes on Linda Lomelino’s blog http://callmecupcake.se when I found the most glorious Strawberry cheesecake I had ever seen in my entired life. It litterally felt like the recipe was calling me saying: “Make me, make me, I know you whant to make me haha”. So I did. Although I already love Linda’s recipes, you guys know that I like to give them little twists. This time I added an amazing mixed berries sauce that goes perfectly with the flavour of the cheesecake.
I must admitt that the pictures did not turn out as well as I expected. But I promise you that the taste is to die for. Let me know if you guys try out this cheesecake. I think it’s the perfect recipe for summer because you don’t even have to bake it in the oven. Just keep it in the fridge overnight and you are good to go. It is fresh, crunchy at the bottom and gooey on the inside. You are going to love it. I hope you guys like it!
