Extra creamy cheesecake topped with strawberry jelly full of strawberry pieces. Rich taste of summer spread over the moist and soft white cake.
There’s always a question in my thoughts about the next cake I should bake. It’s never easy to choose. This time I was focused on fruits… should it be bananas, apples, kiwi or the best summer forerunner – the queen strawberry. Since the weather was hot and sunny I needed something refreshing to serve after lunch. The combination of cheese and strawberries came out amassing and we ate it like ice cream… whole and with pleasure.
I have to say that this cheesy cream I used in preparing a cake not so long ago, Strawberry Cheesecake Poke Cake . It was so tasty and creamy that I couldn’t resist using it one more time.
