Maple Cheesecake

Maple Cheesecake


Maple has been on my mind a lot lately and I have been looking for new ways to enjoy it. While I was going through my bookmarked maple recipes I came across one for a maple cheesecake from Not Quite Nigella and I had to make it immediately. Cheesecake has to be one of my favorite desserts and combining it with the flavour of maple sounded like a great idea! I started out with my standard cheesecake recipe and pretty much just replaced the sugar with maple syrup. An equal amount of maple syrup is not as sweet as sugar but I knew that I was going to drench the cheesecake with more maple syrup when I ate it so I did a straight up replacement. My apartment was filled with the an amazing cheesecake and maple flavour while it was baking and that built up my anticipation even more. So much so that I ate the first one when it had cooled just enough to eat. The maple cheesecake drenched in maple syrup was so good! The still warm from the oven cheesecake was nice and light and fluffy and creamy and good! The maple syrup soaked into the crust and into the cheesecake infusing every mouthful with intense maple flavour. It was pure delight! I ate the second one cool from the fridge and it was more dense and creamy the way I normally like my cheesecakes and it was just as good. I served the second one with some maple whipped cream for even more maple enjoyment.

Yikes! That looks so delicious and decadent I'll have to save it for when I finally have the willpower to starve for a week beforehand. You must have crazy metabolism to make TWO of these.

Kevin - I've discovered your blog only in the last week or so and I'd like to say, you are RIDICULOUS!! You keep posting something even better than the last! I don't know if I can handle it, I'll be busy cooking this and the stout cake all weekend. :)

Anyway - what's up w/the maple whipped cream? Did you use maple syrup in place of powdered sugar, or in addition to? What's the ratios?

Philomena said...

This looks absolutely incredible. I love the idea of making 2 mini cheesecakes.

Nila Rosa said...

This is outstanding. What a great combination, as always. You always find and create the best recipes. My favorite part is the smaller size. No leftovers to overdose on. :)

The inside of that cheesecake makes we wish I could grab a spoon and dig right in! Looks sooooo good!

helen said...

Now if you can just adorn it with a piece of fondant in the shape of a maple leaf…

I’ve made something similar before, and yes, I can vouch for the sweet, heady aroma that would fill the room.
