I’ve been waiting for the weather change to bake this months Cake Slice selection. I had my choice picked out the minute we had our choices. I was hoping for overcast chilly weather, but it just didn’t happen. Low 80’s and clear skies made me wait till the last minute to bake. I even switched my choice! I had first selected the Maple Cake, but then decided I needed to give pumpkin cheesecake another shot!
I dove into the recipe without reading the instructions. I realized half way through I needed to pat dry the pumpkin puree. That wasn’t going to happen, I skipped this step. I also made two other minor changes. The butter and spices were both cut back by half the amounts. Although I love spices, I just don’t like them overpowering everything else in the recipe.
This pumpkin cheesecake turned out delicious! Creamy, light, and perfectly spiced! I’m definitely going to make this again!
