Recipe: Gluten Free Carrot Cake Baked Cheesecake

Easy Gluten Free Carrot Cake Baked Cheesecake Recipe - low fat, sugar free, gluten free, healthy, low calorie, clean eating dessert recipes, unique cheesecake recipes

Every year around my birthday, I go on a cake mission. 

A mission to create a birthday cake (or dessert) that's a little bit different and something that's extra special. Why? Because I bake cakes and muffins and brownies all year long - so birthdays deserve a little extra oomph! 

This year I decided that extra oomph would come in the form of a Carrot Cake Cheesecake. 

When I first suggested it to Jesse, he looked at me like he often does when I have new ideas; like I had two heads. He said, reaaaally slowly for dramatic effect, "Carrot Cake Cheeeeeeeeeesecake? Is that what you said? Why on earth would you put carrots in a cheesecake? That's gross, Kristy". 

Ah, ye of little faith.

Little did he know, my plan was never to put carrots in the cheesecake, but to put cheese on top of carrot cake. So I ignored his lack of confidence in my genius ideas and went ahead and made it anyway.

Only I made it a few days before my birthday because I knew I wouldn't have time to make it on the weekend (as my birthday was Saturday). 

I made the cheesecakes, not really sure if they'd work out - but as soon as I took the first bite I was hooked

Why have I never put cheesecake on top of cake bases before?!?!? It beats biscuit bases by a mile and is the perfect base - and this cheesecake had so much flavour from the carrot cake at the bottom. 

I knew it was a hit when Jesse returned home from work, tried it and then asked for a second. WINNING! Or not quite winning, because then I had to share.... 

We can safely say this was a birthday success (and don't worry, I did have cake on my birthday too! My parents surprised me with a gluten free chocolate mud cake that I didn't have to make myself as they knew the carrot cake cheesecake had already been gobbled up!). 

So let me share the recipe with you! >>

25 Things I Have Learnt in 25 Years


Now, I'm not a magical person of great knowledge and rather a real person - so don't expect superior and profound insight in this post. Instead, I'm going to share the real things I've learnt in life so far...

And it also gives me an opportunity to share some of my test shots from my birthday adventure at the Royal Botanic Gardens (where I was testing out my new lens!).

So here's what I've learnt! >>
