Carrot Cake Cheesecake

Labels: { , , }

Smooth and rich cheesecake, for me, is always a delightful treat. I usually would bake my cheesecake with bain marie (BAN-mah-REE) to prevent cracking but the moisture of this carrot cake helps to keep the cheesecake part from cracking.

I love carrot cake. It's what I usually get on my birthday. I may have to try this instead for my birthday this year.

I think I just went into shock a little from thinking about how awesome this cake must be. My hubby's two favorites...melded into one. Brilliant!
