Vegan Mofo III - Days 10 & 11 - The first vegan cheese cake
I don't know why but I am cooking a lot this weekend (maybe it is the great combination of the new kitchen + new food processor!) and I finally made my first vegan cheese cake! And it was also my first cheese cake ever (I had never eaten the original one!). I was a little bit afraid about the result because it has a lot of steps, but it is good! I used the "Triple Threat Chocolate" recipe, from my favorite book ever, "My Sweet Vegan", by Hannah Kaminsky.
The only thing I did different was using a chocolate bar instead of the chocolate chips. And the only negative point I saw on this recipe is that it is expensive to make it here in Dublin (just the vegan cream cheese costs almost 5 euros!). But it is worth it, the labor, the price, everything!
I'm thinking about adding this option at the Sweet menu (for orders)... let's see! Now I want to make a strawberry one :)
