Do you have a food that you crave constantly, sort of as your baseline? For me, that food is brownies. About once a day or so I think, “I should bake brownies!” In reality I actually make them about two or three times per year since, for me, they come packaged with a total loss of self control. Recently though, I was in need of a little baking therapy. Brownies were an obvious starting point but rather than just make my favorite classic version, I was in the mood for something with a bit of flair. In this case, the flair came in a layer of espresso flavored cheesecake and a sweet, rich sour cream topping.
Part brownie, part cheesecake (my other favorite dessert) plus coffee thrown into the mix? Heaven, I tell you.
