Cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts and if it is on a menu somewhere while eating out I'm always disappointed if its not gluten free. It is one of those refreshing puds because which can be chocolated up or kept on the light side with fruit.
As always with gluten free products it is possible to have them when baked by yourself, using ingredients you are familiar with but sometimes as I've said in previous posts, you need something quick and easy.
So I tried this cheesecake from Tesco and it was really nice. It is in the freezer section along with other delights such as profiteroles and eclairs, oh the temptation but it's good there is now a wider range. It tastes just the same a any other cheesecake or as I say the 'leaded' versions. In fact it actually tastes nicer, the biscuit base doesn't seem so heavy when gluten free so you don't get that bloated feeling after eating it.
This little wonder from Tesco is a baked vanilla cheesecake made with full fat soft cheese on a gluten free biscuit base, topped with blackcurrants and whole raspberries with a raspberry and blackcurrant sauce and priced at £4. There are other products available elsewhere such as:
M&S New York Made Without Wheat Cheesecakes (pk 2) £3.50
Asda Lemon Dairy Free and Gluten Free Cheesecake £2.99
Sainsbury's Free from Vanilla Cheesecake £2.00
which gives you a few to try and me to try too. Oh damn the things you have to do! If you do have time have a go at making a homemade one, there are a lot of really good recipes. I might have a go and post again about the experience so watch this space.
For now though thank you for reading today and I'm off to sample more puddings, well it's that time of the year when life is all about a good pudding. Next week I may feature what is available out there to include with your Christmas dinner so join me again.
Keep well and I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday
Bye for now.
