Well … my ‘famous’ husband Jan has already gotten multiple marriage proposals because of his Double Chocolate Brownies and Cheesecakes, so I’m not sure I should share this recipe … but here goes! I know you’ll enjoy this sinfully enticing cheesecake. Unfortunately, I do too and the fact is, it is SCRUMPTIOUS!
No doubt we have the perfect relationship, as I have absolutely no patience for baking, but he loves it which has earned him the dubious honor of being the incomparable Dessert & Pastry Chef for LeCookery. For those of you who like to bake, this recipe is second to none!
