So the “daylight savings” thing happened this weekend.
Why do we need to save daylight and make it happen earlier?
Because really taking it from one end and adding it to the other isn’t really saving it…
It’s just redistributing it.
Am I right?
I am sure there is a really sciencey explanation for the hows and whys of it all, but I’m not interested frankly.
Alls I know is that it’ll be dark at 4:30 pm..WHEN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE LIGHT..
and light at 5:30 am…WHEN IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE DARK!
Who is the rule maker here?
And don’t even get me started on “Mountain Time Zone”..WHY IN THE WORLD?
Sorry about all the yelling.
Time changes give me anxiety.
And the true cure to anxiety is cheesecake.
Science has definitely proved that to be true.
At least I think it has…or something.
Anyhow, this is no ordinary cheesecake.
It’s Boston Cream Pie Cheesecake.
And it’s perfect because there is no custardy mess happening.
Because I don’t love custard. Sorry.
And also I heard the Red Sox won the World Series…so I decided a dessert with “Boston” in the title would be my only way to jump on the bandwagon.
So anyhow, this is perfect.
You’ve got a layer of vanilla cake, a layer of cheesecake and a yummy chocolate ganache topping…
First make the cake.
I used a simple scratch recipe, but you could easily cut a cake mix in half and bake it up… While that’s baking make your cheesecake layer. It’s a simple recipe with the addition of sour cream to make it extra creamy…
Spread the cheesecake layer all over the baked cake layer… And then bake that!
Let it cool completely and chill it for at least four hours. When it’s completely chilled go ahead and make your chocolate ganache topping.
It’s easy, just heavy cream heated up and chocolate chips melted in. I added a few tablespoons of butter to give it a little umph.
Pour that all over the top after its chilled for a bit and thickened…
Chill it some more until you’re ready to serve it!
Love this recipe because it has it ALL…Cake, Cheesecake and chocolate… you’re set!
