Cheesecake with hazelnuts

POLISH VERSION

As far as I remember, this was the second cheesecake I’d ever made. And from the very beginning I was lucky to choose one of the best cheesecake recipes : )
The cake is heavy and wet with a subtle taste of hazelnut flavour (in fact, during the first making of the cake, the taste was subtle… while preparing it for the second time, I decided not be that stingy when it came to adding alcohol ;P)
Not sure how it works for you but these are my flavours – nuts, chocolate, liqueur and… cheese : )
Oh, and even The Firm Defender of Traditional Cheesecakes tucked in, which really made me happy : )

Holy Sh..eese! It’s sooo yummy!
An amazing cheesecake which definitely deserves to be placed in my personal Top 3 Cheesecake Contest.
From what I’ve noticed, a lot of people claim that the taste of alcohol in the cake is way too heavy… I would say it’s just fine. You can feel it, that’s for sure but if it’s too much… naaah ;D The liqueur gives a nice flavour to the cake but it doesn’t kill its “cheeseness” : )
It is quite heavy and wet comparing to other cheesecakes so those in favour of tradition may not love it.
Still, the facts speak for themselves – the cake needed only one Sunday evening to disappear : )
Good that I found it at Moje Wypieki and checked it out because now it’s one of my favourites : )

Black & White Muffins

Still at the muffin topic, I would like you to try out Black & Whites : )
Do not worry about the structure, muffins are still as good as they could be – soft, subtle and non-sticky : )
Is there anything that makes them special? I think there is, of all muffins posted so far, these ones are the the most delicate and exquisite in their taste. That is why, double recommendation for them (if not triple!) : )
They should satisfy both cocoa and non-cocoa cake eaters : ) Every kind under the sun, as they say… well, close to it : )
The original recipe can be found here.
