Why Cheesecake Is The Ultimate Dessert

There is truly nothing better than sinking our teeth into a freshly baked slice of cake. Honestly, if we had a motto, it would have to be “dessert first” because really, who can argue with that? While pretty much every cake offers its own unique deliciousness, there is something about cheesecake that just gets us every time and keeps us coming back for more. So, here is a small celebration of cheesecake, and all of the yummy reasons why we love it so much.

It’s extra soft and creamy.

Simplicity is a virtue. And while we all love a decadent, fancy, many-layered dessert, there is nothing like the simple elegance of a plain slice of cheesecake. Its super soft, creamy texture is enough to do the trick. Of course, it can’t hurt to toss some fruit slices on top, and maybe some refreshing raspberry reduction, but that’s it. Nothing else is needed. Except for a fork, of course.
