What is your favorite cake?!
One sunny afternoon, the Mr asked me, “do you know what’s my most favorite cake?” I yelled in pride because “Doh! Brownies!!” I knew I was right! I knew it!
“That’s a bar, not a cake.” He chose one moment to be picky and I must say, very well chosen!
(Rolls eyes) “What then?” already, I'm thinking it would be blueberry or chocolate.
Beep Boop! Wrong again. It’s well along the sides of strawberry, cheesecake and pie, or all the three in one!
So! I baked him a cheesecake. There’s no special occasion, yet no occasion more special than this. Simply thanking the man. Thank you, deer, so much for our similarities but... even more for our differences.
8 graham cracker sheets
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted.
In a food processor blitz the crackers until small crumbs form. Pour in the melted butter and blitz again until the mixture is now moist. Pour into springform pan. With a flat-bottomed glass press firmly into the base in an even layer. Once the crumbs are packed into the bottom of the pan bake for 10-12 minutes until the edges are just starting to go golden. Remove from the oven and let cool while you prepare the filling. Raise the temperature of your oven to 475°F once the crust is removed.

1 tsp vanilla extract

Let's not forget the strawberry jam. Noelia sent me her recipe (she's such a dear) and I just had to use it!!
