Tell Me…Does My Quest to Health Include Cheese Cake???? :/

Wouldn’t you know temptation has come to my house!  fof

My oldest son is a pastry chef! Not only that the man can cook too! I am blessed that he remains at home at this time. Both of my boys are a tremendous help to me when I am not well. They are not always willing and happy about it, they do have lives of their own. But at the end of the day, they are there for this family!

Any way! The temptation. James goes to a home group on Thursday nights. He got ambitious and decided to make Strawberry Cheese Cake!  Be cautious I am going to give the recipe right here…this is a smooth, wonderful restaurant style cheese cake made right here in my out of date kitchen and old electric oven.

It was wonderful as only Cheese Cake can be! Imagine how wonderful the taste and texture would have been in a professional kitchen. Ultimately the taste and texture was outstanding…fresh ingredients, Plump beautiful Strawberries 



Read the rest of this post before grabbing the recipe and running to the store…LOL.

Cheese Cake:

41/2 lbs Cream Cheese  ( we used 1/2 Philadelphia and 1/2 store brand to be frugal)

8 0z Sugar ~ creamed with cream cheese

9 Eggs         add in stages scraping sides after each stage for complete integration

6 Egg yokes   same instructions as above

8 oz.  Sour cream – add and scrape

12 0z. Heavy Cream  – add and scrape

2 cups Fresh Strawberries

Butter standard round cake pan and dust with graham cracker crumbs. Pour in batter.

Bake at   350°  for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Transfer to freeze to cool for approximately one hour. Turn onto serving plate ( cover with wax paper then plate, turn out. Place serving plate, flip, remove wax paper and return to refrigerator to firm up).


Here is the fun part! James put all of this together and then realized he was using the restaurant measurements! The product was 4 Cheese Cakes!

Now cut that recipe ladies right in half!!!

Here is the photos of the cakes that stayed at home…one fell, just like a souffle that heard a loud crash…flavor still outstanding!

Well I did enjoy a couple of pieces of this lovely dessert. I am one blessed mother! And I will avoid too much indulgence, I still determine to be completely healthy asap…but that does not mean I cannot enjoy food, as well. Every thing in moderation, right?  Right! Ladies please….  😉
