CHOCOLATE CRUMBLE CHEESE CAKE

May 1, 2019

To be honest I’m not a big fan of cheese cakes. Which seems to be the equivalent of saying ‘I hate babies’ – people look at you like something is wrong with you.
Since my boyfriend is a huge cheese cake lover I gave recipe after recipe a try until I finally found a cheese cake I liked as well. [Actually he found the recipe] And to be truthful this cake I really love!
So, happy birthday my love! This one is for you today!
