Bakehouse Cheese Cake

While your Chocolate Priestess's in-laws are in town we tasted another chocolate offering from B-town. This was the Chocolate Dipped Cheesecake from The Bakehouse which is an outlet for an amazing local business that began as a B&B, became a restaurant, turned into some other small eateries and now supplies baked goods to a multiple of store in the region. We picked up our dessert at the 3rd street store.

It looked so pretty I too a picture before we cut it. The chocolate ganache is very chocolaty and rich, it melts on your fingertips and in your mouth. The top dollops seems to be white chocolate and they have chocolate chips on them as well. Given there are 8 of these white flowers on the edges you should try to cut it into 8 pieces but we chose six because we suspect it would be good and frankly the outer layer was hard to cut through. They must have a special tool or much sharper knife for the individual pieces they sell in the store itself.

The cheesecake is good New York style with lemon and orange hints you can taste. Definitely decadent but then almost all cheesecake is. In terms of chocolate buzz, not really that must, the ganache is only the outer layer but it did taste good especially with bites of creamy cheesecake at the same time, the sweet balancing the bitter. Certainly not a cheap dessert in any sense of the word but for this special visit very much worth it.

Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
