View Full Version : Review: Cappuccino Fudge Cheesecake
10-23-2000, 12:59 AM
This recipe is from the Cooking Light 2000 Annual. Made it today, and it is absolutely scrumptious. It is one of the creamiest cheesecakes I've ever tasted. I served it with homemade raspberry sauce as opposed to the hot fudge sauce called for in the Book.
Definitely a yummy combo.

Was this recipe originally in a CL issue or was it new for the cookbook? I'm excited to try it... would you post your homemade rasberry sauce recipe?
