ROSE’S heavenly CAKES: Cranberry Crown Cheesecake (page 241) is a basic cheesecake. just gloriously enhanced with a crown of ladyfingers and a beautiful topping.
a cheesecake is a custard. custards are (usually) flourless/starchless cakes which rely on eggs to bind and set into a smooth-yet-moldeable ‘cake-like’ cakeS! custards are baked at low temperature so eggs don’t bubble scramble.
Rose’s Chocolate Oblivion cake is the same custard concept, with chocolate:
another type of custard is flan. (so far, i list as custards: cheesecakes, oblivions, and flans). here is hector’s take on flan. i let you dig into my facebook page to find the recipe and the history behind it! try it: (both) finding the recipe and making it! it is easy to do, just takes a lot of waiting time.
don’t tell me it is fattening. flan is only 9 eggs, a lot of reduced fat milk, and the usual amount of sugar; yet it serves at least 20 people! short of the 75 paddlers as you can see each had only a third of a serving!
