I’m hav­ing a dilemma and I need your input.

Cheese­cakes– cake or not. I’m not sure if I should include cheese­cakes in my book on cakes and wanted your feed­back. Here is the sup­port for and against:

For: By hav­ing cheese­cakes, we have cheese­cake! Yay! And they are often gluten free, or eas­ily adapted to be so, which makes the world a bet­ter place.

Against: They’re not really cake and are tak­ing away the valu­able book real estate afforded to more tra­di­tional cake recipes.

What do you think?

    I’m not a huge cheeze­cake fan (vegan or pre­gan) but I wouldn’t mind see­ing them in your new book!

    I voted the bot­tom one but I actu­ally don’t think of them as cakes. For some rea­son I always think of them in the same cat­e­gory as tarts and pies and stuff so I’m always flip­ping through wildly in my cook­books try­ing to find them ’cause they are never where I think they are (you’d have thought I’d have worked it out by now).

    But hav­ing said that, I like a good cheese­cake recipe!

    Life is com­plete with cheese­cakes in it!

  4. I loved cheese­cake ‘pre­gan’ and find­ing vegan cheese­cakes always makes me so so so happy! Its almost like a ‘Ha! Omni­vores! We have every­thing!’ in a good way.

  5. Lee Ann says:

    I agree with Vaala.
    I don’t think of them as cakes proper, but am happy to see a really good cheese­cake recipe.

    I think it depends… I’m not wild about cheese­cake, but if it’s a unique/interesting/unconventional fla­vor com­bi­na­tion, I’m all for it!
