    My wife asked me to make her a cake for her birthday.

    She wanted a Key Lime Cheesecake, and who am I to say no. She also wanted a chocolate crust, so that's what she got. It has the chocolate crust, a layer of lime custard, the lime cheesecake filling, and a sweetened sour cream topping. It turned out rather tasty, if I do say so myself...

                      Close, but no banana. On second thought, you probably already had a stash of bananas...

                    You let me know when a good time is for you to drop one of those lovelies off at my place, and I'll gladly change my birthday to match. Happy Birthday to the missus as well!

                          https://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/key-lime-cheesecake

                          I do increase the lime custard and the cheesecake filling by 50% to make a taller finished product. I suggest just following the recipe the first time.

                          HawkerXP I'm addicted to brownies I maje a batch every second day the GUi type and I also incorporate many different things to the recipe (salty fudge, inject lemon curd, honeycomb and more). Not a big fan of the cake ones.

                        #15
                        I wouldn't mind seeing the recipe, any chance you could share? Thanks.

                      Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


                      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
                      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                      The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                      Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
