Dulce-ious Dulce de Leche Cheesecake Recipe

Take time to do what makes you happy.

How would you make a delicious dessert even more delicious? By adding some dulce de leche touch! I know, cheesecake itself is already awesome. It is nothing but a source of pure bliss (well any kind of dessert is). Now I tried to smash it with much more awesomness by adding   dulce de leche caramelized sauce into it! It is basically a cheesecake with dulce de leche sauce and of course everything is homemade! Let me show you how to do it in an easy step by step process.

Road to heaven / diabetes: 😀

  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3 package of  cream cheese (250g) each
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of crushed Graham Crackers
  1. Preheat oven 425 °F.
  2. Crush Graham crackers and mix it with butter.wp-image-583536542jpg
  3. Press the mixture in a 9 inch spring form pan. This serves as the crust of the cake.(You can use spoon or glass or your bare hands to press the mixture firmly.)
  4. Pour on the condensed milk in a pie pan, cover it with foil and steam it under an inch of boiling water. Use the preheated oven from the step 1 to do this. Wait for an hour. (Caramelization process)
  5. While waiting, beat the cream cheese until soft then mix in the sugar.
  6. After an hour, get the  caramelized condensed milk, whisk it and get 1/2 cup of it. Leave the rest and put it in the fridge for latter use.
  7. Mix in the 1/2 cup of caramelized condensed milk onto the mixture of cream cheese and sugar. Blend well.
  8. Add the eggs gradually and whisk the mixture slowly.
  9. Preheat again the oven this time for 350°F.
  10. Pour on the mixture onto the spring form pan with pressed crust.
  11. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
  12. Let it cool. Chill it for minimum of four hours and serve it with the remaining caramelized milk. *Heat the caramelized milk in the microwave first before pouring it onto the cheesecake.

Other Ideas for topping:

  • any kind of fresh fruits
  • peanut butter
  • chocolate/nutella

For the Love of Pizza

IMG_4958-0Who does not love pizza? Maybe when we are able to live to Mars, this is the one of the first thing i’d bring with me! But believe it or not some pizzas are not that made fabulous as we think. Like the pre-made frozen pizzas. I have nothing against those artificially made pizzas because let’s admit it they indeed make our lives much easier. I don’t know about you but some of those pre-made pizza pies does not really jive with my taste buds. Yes they are cheap and easy to eat but if it does not satisfy you, why would you pay for it?
