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.

 

It goes great with a cup of coffee.

There are many ways we can judge a slice of cake. However, one of the most factors, in our humble opinion, is how well it goes with a cup of coffee. And cheesecake definitely gets a 10/10 score in that category. Whether you prefer to enjoy a piece of cake with your morning coffee, or at 3 pm with your afternoon cup of joe, there is literally no wrong way to enjoy cheesecake and coffee. It’s truly a winning combo.

 

It can even be nutritious!

Okay, let’s be real, nobody eats a piece of cheesecake in order to stay fit. That just isn’t the case. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t pretend we’re staying healthy while indulging in some of our favorite desserts. And luckily, it’s really easy to do this. All you need is a handful of blueberries to decorate the top of your cake with, or you add some sliced peaches into the mix. That’s already healthier than most desserts!
