    Tried making a french cheesecake (tarte au fromage blanc) yesterday using spéculoos as a biscuit base. The base wasn’t great but the cheesecake was amazing. I’d never bought/used fromage blanc before but it’s brilliant! Going to leave out the base next time and make a gâteau au fromage blanc. Loads nicer/lighter than an american cheesecake and really healthy (so no guilt if you eat the whole thing)  :yahoo:

    Once you cut cake of any kind the calories “bleed out”. Leave for 10 minutes and they are completely without calories! ;-)

    You might like this Cheesecake?

    Yes it does especially if you finish the whole piece in one go!  It also works for wine as long as you leave a drop in the bottle ! :whistle:

    I did one the other day, but I’m not using speculoos (I find them too strong on cinnamon). I’ve followed Bill advice to use MC Vities, and it was good ! In the past I did a tarte with fromage blanc, with a “pâte brisée”, worked fine too.

    I often do the basic “gâteau au yaourt”, so easy to do. It’s also a good base for an apple cake or chocolate cake.
