One of my dad's favorite desserts is the classic German baked cheesecake. On June 15th my father celebrated his 80th birthday. So I decided to bake him a cheesecake from home in his honor.
Previously I had always baked a classic cheesecake, but I wanted to try something lighter and I came across a vegan cheesecake recipe that inspired, I tweaked it slightly and I was really happy with the outcome. My grandkids and I celebrated at home and sent grandpa photos, the kids loved it and surprisingly it tastes like the real deal. Super light and easy to digest.
