I’m finding Malta to be a strawberry paradise during this time of the year 🙂 and what a better way to celebrate it than by making a delicious Strawberry cheesecake? I totally agree 🙂
I can’t really explain why but for a long time I wasn’t a fan of cheesecake! I wasn’t a fan of creamy desserts in general and particularly desserts involving whipped cream. I honestly don’t know why because now I love it! And I love cheese so why not cheesecake? Weird, I know!!!!
Malta loves their strawberries and when they start to show on the markets you know Spring is coming 🙂 With the weather changing we are starting to have strawberries earlier each year. I can swear I saw strawberries on a vegetable truck as early as February this year! But April and May are the best months for these red beauties… after, it becomes too hot. Here, there’s even a very famous Strawberry Festival in Mgarr which unfortunately I haven’t visited yet… next year for sure…
This was the first time I’ve made strawberry cheesecake… or any cheesecake! It’s been a while since I started ordering cheesecake for dessert in restaurants but I never thought about making it myself. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend came home with two big boxes of strawberries that he got from his colleague that has a farm. I diced the strawberries from one box and added lemon juice, sugar and Port wine. Simple and really tasty 🙂 But I still had a whole box to use and I couldn’t really leave it to waste. And then it clicked: why not try to make strawberry cheesecake? And this is the result 🙂
