Milla Bakes: Chocolate Cheesecake

As promised, here are the pics of Nigella’s Chocolate Cheesecake I prepared for dessert on Christmas Day.  Hers was prettier but it went down a treat.  I must confess to preferring the London Cheesecake I made this summer though.

Do you bake over Christmas?

    Oh you KNOW I baked up a storm. Had the in-laws over for the first holiday and wanted to do it properly. I’ll have some posts up soon! You are a cheesecake guru quite clearly, as you had no cracks!! I will attempt another cheesecake soon and let is cool in the over longer. Looks delish!

      You know I cannot wait to see your amazing photos!! Do you enjoy playing hostess? I do.

      I don’t feel very confident making cheesecakes because I’ve only made three. Unlike baking where I play around with quantities (sometimes I don’t even use scales), I follow the cheesecake recipe to the letter hence no cracks. I swear that I basically sit by the oven watching it like a hawk.

    Yes, good for you with the no cracks indeed! That’s always the problem with mine! Perfect cheesecake!

      Cupcake, I’m sure your cheesecakes are, like everything else you make, to die for!

    Oh I just love Nigella! She is so sensual… so daring… in her nightly refrigerator pop ins.

    Champagne Sweet New Year! Your blog enchants me every time… so chic. Good to the glam soul.

      Merci Susu and yes, Nigella is so sensual! One of the best British cooks out there. Gorgeous too.

      Happy New Year!

      It was really tasty 🙂 Hehe, you know the secret? I don’t know about other people, but whenever I’ve baked or cooked, I never feel hungry so end up eating very little of what I’ve made. My secret though is pilates. Love it! Cupcake makes the most yummy food ever! I wish I lived in her kitchen.

    I am so jealous you and your man got some of this and I did not.

    I’m still working on booking that ticket out there within the next 10 years 😉
