When served cooled from the oven, it’s soft and creamy, but my preferred thanks to serve it's after you’ve chilled the cheesecake overnight, making it more of a replacement York Style cheesecake — my favorite.

The toppings on this cheesecake are completely optional, but they are doing add plenty of “Wow” factor, and make the whole baking process significantly less stressful by removing any worry of a cracked top.


Your cheesecake may crack, but it’s okay because you'll douse it in caramel sauce and nuts and more Snickers and more caramel and more nuts and , you get the thought.


Low-stress cheesecake is where it’s at, people. You'll preach water baths all you would like , and that i am a believer of them, too, but sometimes you only don’t want the FUSS of all of that.

And who doesn’t love something covered in caramel? Dousing in caramel makes everything okay.

  4. Press into a greased, 9” Spring Form pan with at least 3" high sides ( this is taller than standard!!!! )
  5. Bake for 8 minutes.

This No-Bake Raspberry stratified  vegetarian Cheesecake is gorgeous and simple to make! The cheesecake layers area unit creamy and splendid because of cashews, with a tart raspberry topping.

This instruction are the most effective and prettiest if you have got a half-dozen in. Springform pan.

I solely had a bigger one reachable, however since this cheesecake is therefore made, I didn’t wish to create a large one. Therefore I did invest within the half-dozen in. Pan, and I’m glad I did.


For the crust:

  • 1/2 cup almond flour or meal
  • 2 medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts
  • 2-3 tablespoons water, as needed for processing
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Tart raspberry top layer:

  • 3 tablespoons agave or pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Grease a 6 inch springform pan with coconut oil, or line a 6 inch cake pan with parchment paper for easy removal. I would recommend greasing it as well.
  2. Make the crust: To a food processor, add the walnuts, almond flour, dates, 2 tablespoons water and salt. Process until a sticky dough is formed, adding another tablespoon of water (or more) if needed. Do not over process. Press the dough evenly along the bottom of the prepared pan.

The cheesecake filling includes a layer of caramel with additional pecan chips mixed in, a layer of chocolate and so a creamy sugar cheesecake. The total cheesecake is lidded with even additional buttery caramel, sleek chocolate and firm pecan chips. 

The final cheesecake is sleek, creamy and therefore the good combination of turtle candy flavors and cheesecake. Such a fun vacation course that produces an excellent various to pumpkin!



  • 2 cups (414g) sugar
  • 1/4 cup (28g) pecan chips
  • 1/2 cup (112g) salted Challenge butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup (240ml) heavy whipping cream, room temperature
  • 5 tbsp (41g) all-purpose flour, sifted


  • 2 cups (268g) graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup (112g) salted Challenge butter, melted
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (28g) pecan chips


  • 4 oz (2/3 cup | 116g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 6 tbsp (90ml) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 24 oz (678g) Challenge cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp (24g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (230g) sour cream
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup (144g) light brown sugar

  • 2 oz (1/3 cup | 58g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) heavy whipping cream


  1. To make the caramel sauce, pour the sugar into an even layer in a large saucepan.
  2. Heat on medium-high heat, whisking the sugar until melted. The sugar will clump up first, but will eventually completely melt. This should take about 10 minutes.
  3. Once the sugar has melted, stop whisking and allow to cook until the sugar has turned to a little darker amber color. You may notice a nutty aroma. The change in color will happen quickly, so don’t let it go too long or get too dark or it’ll burn. Remove the caramel from the heat.
  4. Add the butter and whisk until combined. The mixture will bubble up quite a bit, but keep whisking until all the butter has melted and combined.
  5. Slowly pour the heavy cream into the caramel and whisk until incorporated. I find it can help to add just a bit at a time until the caramel starts to thin out, then you can add the rest. Whisk until well incorporated and smooth.
  6. Set about 1 cup of caramel sauce aside for topping. Add the flour and pecan chips to the remaining caramel and set that aside.
  7. To make the cheesecake crust, preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 9-inch (23cm) springform pan with parchment paper in the bottom and grease the sides.
  8. Combine the crust ingredients in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and up the sides of the springform pan.
  9. Bake the crust for 10 minutes, then set aside to cool.
  10. Cover the outsides of the pan with aluminum foil so that water from the water bath cannot get in (see how I prepare my pan for a water bath). Set prepared pan aside.
  11. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F (148°C).
  12. Pour the caramel sauce with the pecans and flour into the bottom of the crust and spread into an even layer.
  13. To make the cheesecake filling, put the chocolate chips in a small bowl.
  14. Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  15. Pour the chocolate into an even layer over the caramel sauce in the crust.
  16. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, brown sugar and flour on low speed until well combined and smooth. Be sure to use low speed to reduce the amount of air added to the batter, which can cause cracks. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  17. Add the sour cream and vanilla extract and mix on low speed until well combined.
  18. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing slowly to combine after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed to make sure everything is well combined.
  19. Pour the cheesecake batter into the crust, over the chocolate.
  20. Place the springform pan inside another larger pan. Fill the outside pan with enough warm water to go about halfway up the sides of the springform pan. The water should not go above the top edge of the aluminum foil on the springform pan.
  21. Bake for 1 hour 35 minutes. The center should be set, but still jiggly.
  22. Turn off the oven and leave the door closed for 30 minutes. The cheesecake will continue to cook, but slowly begin to cool as well.
  23. Crack the door of the oven for 30 minutes to allow the cheesecake to continue to cool slowly. This process helps prevent cracking.
  24. Remove the cheesecake from the oven and remove the water bath and wrapping.
  25. Pour about 1/2 cup of the remaining caramel sauce over the top of the cheesecake and spread into an even layer. If the caramel sauce has firmed up too much to pour, heat it up for about 10 seconds.
  26. Refrigerate cheesecake until completely cool and firm, 5-6 hours. When the cheesecake is cool and firm, remove it from the springform pan and place on a serving dish.
  27. Place the chocolate chips for the drizzle in a small bowl. Heat the heavy whipping cream just until it begins to boil, then pour over the chocolate chips. Allow it to sit for 3-4 minutes, then whisk until smooth.
  28. Drizzle the remaining caramel sauce and chocolate sauce over the cheesecake and sprinkle with a few more pecan chips. Refrigerate cheesecake until ready to serve.

The ultimate fall dessert! This pumpkin poke cake is drizzled with caramel sauce, opaque with a downy cheese ice and lidded with even a lot of caramel sauce.


This past summer I created a coconut milk Poke Cake. Very similar to the coconut version, this poke cake is pretty straightforward to form, because it starts with a boughten ready-mix.  

To bring this sweet full circle, I then high the cheese ice with another drizzle of caramel sauce. Makeing the cake further pretty, I used a strip to tug lines through the icing to cream a fairly cloth style.



  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 box, spice cake mix
  • 1 c. canned, pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 c. caramel ice cream topping, divided
  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg, cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 c. whipped topping (like Cool Whip)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13 pan with baking spray, set aside.
  2. With a hand or stand mixer, mix together the cake mix, pumpkin, water, eggs and oil stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Mix until smooth. Pour batter into the prepared pan, and bake at 350 for 30-33 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, and crumb free.
  3. As soon as the cake comes out of the oven, while it is still hot, poke holes into the cake with the end of a wooden spoon. In a microwave safe bowl, heat up a 1/2 cup of the caramel sauce for about 20-30 seconds, just to warm (making it easier to pour over the cake). Pour the warm caramel sauce over the top of the hot cake, making sure to get the majority of the sauce into the holes of the cake. Let the cake cool completely.
  4. Once the cake is cool, prepare the cream cheese frosting. With a hand or stand mixer, cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk until smooth and creamy. Add the whipped topping, and fold into the cream cheese mixture. Spread the frosting over the top of the cake, gently pressing the frosting into the holes of the cake. Smooth out evenly.
  5. Drizzle the top of the cake with the remaining 1/4 cup of caramel sauce. For a decorative effect, drag a toothpick through the opposite lines of the caramel sauce in the opposite direction to make a herringbone design. Refrigerate any leftovers. Enjoy!

Almond cake could be a delicious mix of almond, coconut, chocolate and lemon flavors. Almond cake and chocolate coconut filling with a touch of lemon flat-topped with Raffaello candies and desiccated coconut.

Although the cake is basically lovely and delicious I can’t say that it tastes like Ferrero Raffaello confectiones. It's wet and soft almond sponge created with suntanned butter.


The filling is created with chocolate, coconut milk, cream and Greek yoghurt, however it additionally incorporates a hint of lemon flavor because of freshly squeezed juice another into thawed chocolate. It’s coated with thick layer of desiccated coconut. Within the finish it's the proper combination of of these flavors. I created many changes from original direction. I skipped grated lemon rind within the filling, as a result of i assumed it'll be overwhelming.

  • 3.5 oz (100g) toasted almonds-ground

  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 14 oz. (390 g) white chocolate-chopped

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F and line two baking trays with parchment paper, set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan heat the butter until lightly browned, then let it cool completely.

A rich and decadent damp cake with a raspberry jam center paired with straightforwardst|the best} chocolate-sour cream topping really build this direction the simplest simple cake ever!

No creaming butter and sugar with this direction either, to not mention, it whips up in one bowl! That’s right, place your significant stand mixer into the cupboard! 


The cake is made and damp however not excessively chocolatey with simply the proper quantity of sweetness. Julia necessitate the cake to be paired with a raspberry jam filling that adds a pleasant bit. Additionally to the current nice cake direction, is that the chocolate-sour cream topping. Currently I’ll admit, after I 1st browse that it needed 3 ingredients solely, I used to be a touch skeptical. In all probability as a result of accustomed be} used to creating ancient buttercream topping with typical butter and granulated sugar. The ingenuity of the chocolate-sour cream topping very seals the whole factor.



  • 1 cup [200 g] sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups [150 g] all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup [240 ml] strong black coffee, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup [75 g] Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
  • 8 tbsp [110 g] unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup [240 ml] buttermilk or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup [160 g] raspberry jam (seeded or seedless)

Frosting :

  • 3/4 cup [130 g] semisweet chocolate chips or roughly chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup [180 ml] sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Fresh raspberries or chocolate curls (as pictured) for serving, completely optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Butter the bottom and sides of two 8-in cake pans, then line the bottom of each with a circle of parchment paper. For good measure, butter the parchment paper and set pans aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter, eggs, coffee, buttermilk, and vanilla and whisk until the batter is smooth. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cake pans (I used a small kitchen scale, but you can also use a measuring cup to be accurate).
  4. Bake until the cakes are firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Transfer the cakes, still in their pans, to a wire rack an let cool completely.
  5. Once cool, use a dinner knife to loosen the edges of the cakes from the pans and invert them onto your work surface (I had to give the pans a lil’ whack to get them to release from the pan). Peel and discard the parchment paper.

For the frosting :

  1. Melt the chocolate (in a microwave-safe bowl) in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment. Remove from heat and whisk in the sour cream and maple syrup. The frosting should be smooth and silky. Refrigerate the frosting until the cakes have cooled (about an hour or so). The frosting will thicken as it cools.
  2. Once cakes have cooled, put one on a serving platter upside-down so that the flat side is facing up. Spread the jam over the top. Put the second cake on top of the jam-slathered cake, again flat-side up- this way you get a nice flat top.
  3. Using a small offset spatula, spread the frosting all over the sides and top of the cake. Julia says there is no need to be perfect with this step- you can frost however you like, rustic-looking or smooth. Feel free to garnish and decorate with raspberries or however you like.
  4. Let the cake sit for about an hour before serving. I put mine back into the refrigerator overnight and served cold the next day, it was divine!
  5. Enjoy!

  • ½ cup oil
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 ½ teaspoon vanilla

  • 1–2 Tablespoons cream or milk (I used cream)


  1. First make the crumbs: in a bowl stir together flour, sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon. Add chilled cubed butter and using a fork or pastry blender press to combine evenly and create large crumbs. Set in the fridge until ready to use.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease 9 inch springform pan, line the bottom with parchment paper and set aside( I baked this cake in 8 inch springform pan and it almost overflow the pan while baking so you better use 9 inch pan, but your cake won’t be as tall as the cake on the photo).
  3. To make cream cheese filling in a medium bowl beat together softened cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Mix in egg white and vanilla just to combine. Set aside.
  4. To make the cake toss together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, set aside.

  7. Pour half of the pumpkin cake batter in the pan, spoon cream cheese filling on top. Gently pour remaining pumpkin cake batter, smooth the top, sprinkle with crumb topping and bake 45-55 minutes (until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, a few moist crumb is OK) Start checking after 45 minutes because if you bake it too long the cake will be dry.
  8. After 20 minutes run a thin knife around the cake, release the ring from springform pan and take it off.
  9. To make the glaze stir together powdered sugar and cream (or milk) and drizzle over the cake.
