Okay, I know this is already the second cheesecake recipe within a short period of time. But a.) in my opinion you can’t have enough recipes for cheesecakes, b.) the first one isn’t a blueberry cheesecake recipe and c.) I post this recipe rather for my brother than for me. So, before you have a look at the recipe you need to know my brother is a kind of fitness freak and was living on a low carb diet for some weeks or months. Well, actually this is definitely not my kind of nutrition or let’s call it lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong I work in the fitness industrie and I am very much in favour of being active and eating (quite) healthy. But I believe more in real food, variety, pleasure, indulgence and loving life. This also includes a (more or less large) slice of cake for me. And, just between you and me, my brother wouldn’t not be my brother if he doesn’t love to eat and crave cake from time to time, too.
When I was a child Walt Disney’s “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” was one of my favorite movies. I guess everybody knows the story about this little tough girl and her journey through a fantastic world full of lovely and less lovely creatures. And one of my favorite scene of this movie is the mad tea party with the March Hare and the Mad Hatter. Probably I developed really early a weakness for tea and lovely looking crockery (have you ever recognized all the beautiful tea pots?). But what I loved more was the fact they are celebrating their unbirthday. I mean what a beautiful idea to celebrate everyday of your life like it’s your birthday. And well, why don’t having, maybe not everyday, but more often a birthday worthy layer cake? By the way, this raspberry layer cake is without refined sugar and so light that you can even have everyday one big piece without (or almost) any guilt feelings 😉
Some of you asked me for recipe for this lemon cheesecake, when I was posting a picture on Instagram some weeks (or even months) ago. And I know I promised to post the recipe on the blog very soon. Those who know me in real life know I always want to keep my promises and I feel very bad whenever I cannot. So please excuse me for letting you waiting. But I have been very busy last month that I could not even write one post (and those who are connected with me through Instagram probably noticed there have also been a large lack of pictures). Actually I even have some more recipes I have already taken photos for and I hope I will finally have time to post all of them in the coming weeks. Of course I know there is no pressure to do that. But all you lovely people out there, who appriciate my work and motivate me, just make me want to give some of that love back.
First of all: I wish you all a happy new year! I hope you enjoyed your holidays with your lovely ones and now you are recovering from good food, drinks and new year’s celebration. It is really loveliest time of the year for me, because during the christmas time and beetween christmas and new year’s eve i can take a more relaxed view on things in my life. But when it is all over, it always feels like a hangover, a mental hangover. I am a little bit tired, think with some melancholy about the last year and what to expect in next year. Actually, i am not one for making new year’s resolutions, because i think you don’t need a new year to change something if you really want to and most of the new year’s resolutions will be break latest after one month anyway 😀
