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 :)

Nice cheesecake. Don't know if it would be cheaper, but you could also try a raw cheesecake. All you need are raw cashews and a few other ingredients.

It looks perfect! I'm so happy that you liked it, and it was ultimately worth the expense and time. :)

Yum! I love cheesecake. I also find that buying the amount of cream cheese needed for these recipes is expensive! I wonder if they are cheaper in the US?
